“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.
