Psalm 109: A Prayer for the Punishment of the Wicked

“Let [her] days be few .  . . . It cannot be wrong for an officer of justice to aim at this; to desire it; to pray for it. How strange it would be for a magistrate to pray “that a murderer or a traitor should be long lived!”

“And let another take [her] office – So every man [woman] acts, and practically prays, who seeks to remove a bad and corrupt man [woman] from office. As such an office must be filled by someone, all the efforts which he [she] puts forth to remove a wicked man [woman] tend to bring it about that ‘another should take his [her] office;’ and for this it is ‘right’ to labor and pray. The act does not of itself imply malignity or bad feeling, but is consistent with the purest benevolence, the kindest feelings, the strictest integrity, the sternest patriotism, and the highest form of piety.”

– Barnes’ Notes on the Bible

ABOUT US

We are a group of individuals, writers, want-to-be authors and inquisitive wordsmiths that have become “literally” numb from reading the numerous author help related blog posts. Many of  these postings are subjective and do not offer any substantial documentation regarding purported claims regarding publishers and other industry professionals. In addition, many of these sites have become nothing more than complaint boards that disseminate speculative claims without any substantiation.  We do not discount the validity of some claims made. However, we want to question both sides of an issue and to assist other authors in making informed decisions. If a fact is proven true we’ll support it. If a claim is twisted, slanted, incomplete, not updated (retracted) or smells like innuendo . . . we’ll challenge it.

We will not engage in self-promotion, post links to our books or encourage you, in any way, to purchase our books.

” Victoria Strauss has remained silent regarding the findings and challenges to her credibility raised by The Write Agenda. Normally, most people and companies will respond quickly with a response when reputations are challenged. However, she has basically stuck her head in the sand hoping that our findings, i.e. that American Book Publishing was never the subject of a ‘police investigation,’ will simply pass.”

The Write Agenda – June 8, 2011

[Editor’s Note:  The Blog host used censorship to protect Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware. As luck would have it, the Host/Editor of the site below ” . . . deleted the anonymous posts attacking writers beware [sic] and others on this blog.” Interestingly, the patsy left the entry posted by (guess who?) Victoria Strauss. It’s always amazing to see these “flying monkeys” that rise up to protect the weiner dogs (Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, James D. Macdonald etc.). When ever someone has them painted into a corner they call it an attack. The questions still remain for Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware. 1 – 8 below. Victoria Strauss has remained silent and has yet to respectfully (empirically) defend (prove) her claim against American Book Publishing. Updated, 9/16/11]

Let’s follow this blog:

http://bookendslitagency.blogspot.com/2011/09/writers-beware.html

Can Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware produce the requested information? That is:

Regarding their claim that “American Book Publishing has been the subject of at least one police investigation”:

1. Who was the investigating police agency?

2. Who was the investigating officer(s)?

3. What is the incident number?

4. Why hasn’t Writer Beware posted this information and links to it?

5. What was American Book Publishing investigated for? (Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware do not state this. Why?)

6. What information can you post that would discredit the information and research that has been posted by The Write Agenda through their intensive investigation of your claim? (See this link: Click here.)

7. How long do you intend to be in a depressive state of silence?

8. If you cannot produce evidence to back up your statement that “American Book Publishing has been the subject of at least one police investigation” do you honestly think that people are going to continue to have faith and trust in you? Again,  Victoria Strauss and Ann “A.C.” Crispin, it’s time to come clean and resist the urge to remain silent.

Can they disprove the evidence that was posted here? Come on authors . . . this is where Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware will lead you (Click here).

ABOUT US

We are a group of individuals, writers, want-to-be authors and inquisitive wordsmiths that have become “literally” numb from reading the numerous author help related blog posts. Many of  these postings are subjective and do not offer any substantial documentation regarding purported claims regarding publishers and other industry professionals. In addition, many of these sites have become nothing more than complaint boards that disseminate speculative claims without any substantiation.  We do not discount the validity of some claims made. However, we want to question both sides of an issue and to assist other authors in making informed decisions. If a fact is proven true we’ll support it. If a claim is twisted, slanted, incomplete, not updated (retracted) or smells like innuendo . . . we’ll challenge it.

We will not engage in self-promotion, post links to our books or encourage you, in any way, to purchase our books.

Atlanta Nights: Filmmaker Rachael Saltzman to Use “Personal Funds” to Create Documentary; Traditional Channels Fail to Produce Support

In A.C., A.C. Crispin, Absolute Write, Accountability, Ann "A.C." Crispin, Atlanta Nights, Author, Authors, Credibility, David L. Kuzminski, Filmmaker, Interviews, Investigations, James D. MacDonald, Preditors & Editors, Propaganda, Publish America, PublishAmerica, Publishers, Rachael Saltzman, Reputation, Reputation Management, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association, Self-Publishing, SFWA, Teresa Nielsen Hayden, The Write Agenda, Travis Tea, Vanity Press, Victoria Strauss, Watchdog, Writer Beware, Yog's Law on September 6, 2011 at 12:25 pm

“I know it’s been really quiet on this page. No, I haven’t given up! I’m currently working on a historical documentary with a wonderful producer. Once we finish the current project, I’ll be right back on it.”

– Rachael Saltzman (Facebook, January 15, 2013)

“Researching grant writing.”

 – Rachael Saltzman (Facebook, December 16, 2011)

“Still getting personal funds together for gear in order to do the documentary of the making of this book.”

 – Rachael Saltzman (Facebook, August 25, 2011)

“Rachael: Hey gang. I know it’s been quiet here. Looking for money is slow going, and I don’t have anything new to report. Not giving up, just running a marathon.”

 – Rachael Saltzman (Facebook, November 8, 2011)

On May 16, 2011 the request for public funding of Atlanta Nights resulted in an epic failure with a shortfall of $18, 702. Shortly thereafter, Filmmaker Rachael Saltzman declared that they were no longer seeking donations and that they were “…trying to go through more traditional channels and we’ll see what happens there.”

Well, it appears that there are no takers for this project in the “traditional channels” circle. Now Rachel Saltzman is going to use “personal funds” to bring this project to life?

As we stated back in June, seriously??? Does it seem like waiting to “see what happens” is a statement of confidence? Ok, we’re “traditional” investors. The number one question is: What’s the projected return on investment (ROI)? It is going to produce a profit . . . right?

Rachael, no one cares! This is an epic failure. Have you figured that out yet? Have you not even noticed that James D. MacdonaldVictoria Strauss and Ann “A.C.”  Crispin failed to financially support this self-serving endeavor? It’s nothing more than a pitiable literary masturbation get-together. Yet, they overwhelmingly take credit for it. How much longer will you suckle the breasts of these self-serving “watchdogs”? You are being used. It’s time to start thinking about saving your career and investing your talents elsewhere.

Atlanta Nights (the book) has a current Amazon Sales Ranking of 1, 126,075. In other words, that equates to less than 3 copies sold every 500 days.

The Write Agenda is currently researching the impact, if any, that Writer Beware has made on the publishers listed on its “Thumbs Down” list. Preliminary research suggests that many of the publishers on the “Thumbs Down” list have continued to grow and flourish. Since the inception of Writer Beware in 2005, many of the targeted publishers have added 1000’s of new authors and books to their collections.

The Price of Loyalty to Crispin, Macdonald & Strauss: Participating in Propaganda Leads to Low Amazon Sales Rankings

We have been extremely thrilled to watch the progress of many “untraditionally” published authors. Many of these authors have been on our Author Watch – Best Sellers List; some of them have made the list for the past 12 weeks. It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to promote those that are overcoming the odds and proving the publishing industry “watchdogs” wrong.

The Write Agenda does not object to authors being critical of certain publishing entities or issues. In fact, we encourage it. We even have a page dedicated to our critics here. However, we have discovered that it is the degree to which an author engages in these practices that negatively reflects on their sales, marketing successes and public perception. For the most part, authors on the Author Watch – Best Sellers List are engaged in high level book marketing activities and low level industry blogging. Wonder why they are successful?

The authors that are on our Propaganda Watch List typically have low Amazon Sales Rankings. Arguably, this would tend to suggest that participating in publishing industry propaganda leads to low Amazon Sales Rankings. Victoria Strauss, the matriarch of Writer Beware, has Amazon Sales Rankings that currently range from 322,437 – 7,654,845. Teresa Nielsen Hayden, has a current ranking of 1,872,620. In fact, many “vanity press” authors outperform Ann “A.C.” Crispin, James D. Macdonald, and Victoria Strauss on a consistent basis (click here).  In other words, if a 100,000 Amazon Sales Ranking equates to 3 copies sold every 500 days and a 2,000,000 Amazon Sales Ranking equates to 1 copy every 1000 days . . .  you can get an idea of where they are at. Is this the kind of publishing industry role model you want?

Of course, these are just a few of examples . . .  we have many.  There are numerous examples of self-proclaimed publishing experts and self-persecuted authors that want to lead you down this path. Many of these individuals spend their time bashing/trashing on Writer Beware, threatening The Write Agenda, writing bogus book reviews and not engaging in effective marketing practices. Moreover, their books truly are epic failures and they tend to cast aspersions instead of taking responsibility for their own failures (i.e. they wrote a crappy book and no one is purchasing it). This is the cult-like following of Writer Beware, Making Light, Preditors & Editors and other like-kind spin-offs  . . .  this is the kind of minions they attract. Solace for losers?

You’ll rarely see an author from our Author Watch – Best Sellers List participating in this kind of negative activity. Moreover, you will never see J.K Rowling, Dan Brown, John Grisham, Danielle Steel or Patricia Cornwell (or their contemporaries) participating (or endorsing) with these kinds of sites and their nefarious activities. Why? Because they are engaged in the quest to become a better writer and book marketer. Karma is certainly a characteristic for those on the Propaganda Watch List: “  . . . for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” There is one author that did not take it well when she discovered that she was on our Propaganda Watch List. However, she’s devoted hours and volumes of words to trashing The Write Agenda. Her audience? Ten (10) followers on her blog . . .  hardly a good use of time when her book is failing and has little market appeal.

We love to quote James D. Macdonald, especially when his words ring true: “Every legitimate commercial press will readily publish a first-time or unknown author, and do it for free. There are literally thousands of legitimate commercial presses. The only caveat is this: Your book has to be really well-written.” The kicker here is: “Your book has to be really well-written.” This is, in part, what separates the successful authors from those on our Propaganda Watch List. Based on the Amazon Sales Rankings, regardless of who published the books, there are many poorly-written books and participating in propaganda will never fix that. Authors, take a step back, question what you read and follow the footsteps of other successful authors. Is there really any merit in receiving advice from the author of a poorly-written (unmarketable book worth) your investment of time?

The Price of Loyalty to Crispin, Macdonald & Strauss: Participating in Propaganda Leads to Low Amazon Sales Rankings . . . the numbers and statistics don’t lie; but they do!
