Do you really choose to get your “publishing” information from an “author” that has not proven her validity in the publishing market? Strauss may be a “hero” within the Kool-Aid drinking . . . Flying monkey community. However, in terms of mass market appeal . . . i.e., the actual  “reading” community . . .  the individuals that really “buy” books . . . not the sympathetic purchases from the Flying Monkeys . . . Strauss has been and continues to be a literary flop! Strauss has yet to show her royalty statements (like Jim Hines has) and validate her status as an author that should be taken seriously.

*Note that the scam hunting is selective . . . they (Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Writer Beware and the SFWA do not report the publishing scams that were perpetrated by their own attorney. See John Steinbeck Family Defrauded by Writer Beware™ & SFWA Attorney: The 2007 Scam that Writer Beware™ Didn’t Report . . . Why?
