Robert Fletcher, CEO, Successfully Overcomes Damaging Allegations and Declares that Settlement is a Victory When Dealing with any Government Agency.

“Anytime a business settles litigation with a government agency with no admission of guilt and no violation of the law, it can be considered a victory,” said Robert Fletcher, the CEO of a group of companies that have been dealing with government litigation for over six years.

“Unfortunately, most consumers believe that litigation equals guilt, but that simply isn’t true.  This suit should never have been filed,” Mr. Fletcher continued. “If the litigation had any merit, they would have pushed it harder and not taken six years to deal with it.  Furthermore, the attorney who filed against us was asked to leave her job for ethical and competency issues.  Mr. Fletcher went on to say that, “settlement was the best action for our constituents as it allows us to concentrate on the future and not continue to pour money down the legal drain hole of America’s quasi-political legal process. Most importantly, we want our authors to realize that this litigation did not include our current businesses.  The suit was only directed at older companies that had a completely different business model and had already been dissolved”.

Mr. Fletcher concluded by looking to the future. “With this settlement, our family of authors and employees can rest assured that our business principles are sound and fair.  I am extremely happy for our authors, clients, and employees who have had to deal with the uncertainties of this misguided litigation for the last six years.  We have now formally put this behind us and we feel stronger than ever.  Let’s get back to business.  We have our clients’ books to publish and sell and distribute around the world.  And we would like any potential client that turned away from us because of this issue to please reconsider joining us.”

Therefore, the witch hunt perpetrated by Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Writer Beware and the SFWA has been discredited; the The Florida Attorney General is NOT ACTIVELY collecting complaints and information.

So, the question is, will Robert Fletcher again pursue legal action against Victoria Strauss, SFWA, Writer Beware & others?

Florida Attorney General Investigated by the Florida State Inspector General – Strategic Book Publishing Prepares Countersuits.

In Attorney, Attorney General, Florida, State of Florida Inspector General, Strategic Book Group, Strategic Book Publishing, strategic book publishing and rights agency, Theresa Edwards on June 4, 2013 at 9:03 pm

The State of Florida Inspector General conducted an investigation into the internal affairs of the Florida Attorney General’s office and found the following improprieties.  These exact statements are quoted below. (The full text of the investigation can be found here http://www.scribd.com/doc/77393414/IG-Report-1).

Strategic Book Group’s President, Mr. Robert Fletcher, stated the following to The Write Agenda, “given the above facts and statements from the Florida State Inspector General, not only do we expect our reputation to be cleared, we are preparing Abuse of Process and Defamation countersuits against the Attorney General and the terminated attorney that filed the suit against us, Ms. Theresa Edwards.   Our countersuit(s) will leave no doubt in anyone’s mind that we were wronged and suffered great mental and financial harm.”

Highlights from the Florida Inspector General’s statements:

 … Improperly acting under your cloak of your authority as law enforcement officials by publicly vilifying companies based on unconfirmed evidence during the pendency of an ongoing investigation in which you have not completely collected or reviewed the relevant evidence, let alone made any charging decision regarding the company.  This is a violation of basic principles of due process and may certainly rise to the level of questionable behavior under the Florida Attorney General’s own protocols.

 … “You have acted as judge and jury with written publications of your conclusions, absent a complete review of evidence… at a minimum you have tainted the investigation and anything that follows.

 ...  allegations of requests to falsify evidence. 

 … improper identification and analysis of legal issues;

 … judgment in discussing matters related to pending investigations with third parties;

 … unfairly harming the target or misleading whoever is receiving the information;

 … labeling activities as crimes unfairly;

 … cases were a total mess lacking any investigative effort;

 … your attorneys didn’t know what they were talking about;

 … complaint totally flawed;

 … never bothering to check if there was any legal authority which supported their theory; 

 … dismay about putting on the Internet incorrect information;

 … lack of documentation to support a case;                   

 … unresponsive to opposing counsel,

 … sending material straight out to the blogosphere,

 … drum up attention in the media to bring extra pressure on the case,

 … embarrassing to the State of Florida,

 … a complete violation of trust,

 … no evidence to warrant opening half of their cases,

 … issues that could have been recognized earlier if management at the time was paying attention,

 … management not as focused on the details,

 … good reviews given to fired employees,

… “there’s things that’s been done that just does not appear ethical, it does not appear right and I’m uncomfortable doing certain things.” 

 … Problematic to have an incorrect target listed on the Internet, riddled with inaccuracies, unfair statements, and specious inferences regarding …

… The fact that you would make statements concluding that any company or individual is guilty of criminal misconduct during an ongoing, purportedly confidential, civil investigation is at best irresponsible.

(Part 3 of a 4 part series

Part III: John Scalzi Was No Moses – Evaluation of Leadership & the Potential to Lead

 Philosophically, I’m opposed to having only one candidate for a leadership position of any organization I am involved with. I don’t think it speaks well for the organizational health of the body; it suggests an apathetic membership. One can debate whether the membership is apathetic because the organization is not useful enough to be engaged in, or whether the membership is simply apathetic in a general sense (or both). Whatever the cause, it’s not an encouraging sign.” [Emphasis added]

–         John Scalzi

John Scalzi, in prior SFWA elections, ran for office unopposed. Has his opinion changed since 2007? Or, is this flip-flopping and waffling? Let’s evaluate Scalzi’s term in office and use some questions as the criteria (or balancing test) to evaluate the fitness of the 2013 candidates (i.e. Theodore Beale & Steven Gould). If you are a SFWA member, you should consider these prior to casting your vote.

In reviewing Scalzi’s departure sermon, do we really need to be made aware of his “personal” triumphs while he held office? It’s really no big secret that Scalzi (who wrote several books while in office), Victoria Strauss and Ann “A.C.” Crispin have used their positions with the SFWA to expand their marketing activities. True Leadership involves self-sacrifice . . . not self-promotion.

“ . . .  [I]f I am elected president, you should know now that I will view the position as something I am doing in addition to my writing career, not something of equal importance. I might as well be honest with you on that score.” [Emphasis added]

–         John Scalzi

A true leader identifies completely with his/her people (membership), their purpose and is willing to give up everything for them. Did Scalzi epitomize this kind of leadership? How much did he give of himself? That is, did he devote himself to undertaking the duties and fulfilling his responsibilities relative to strengthening the SFWA membership? How much did he sacrifice? Did he sacrifice everything or was his own self-interest and self-promotion a version of his own “Golden Calf”? How encompassing was his commitment to the SFWA and its membership? Did his commitment extend to every member of the SFWA . . .  or, was it handed out arbitrarily or selectively? What steps were taken, during his term in office, to ensure the timely filing of compliance documents with state and federal officials?

“I’ve never expected SFWA to do anything for me because I require nothing from it. However, I have the luxury of regarding my membership as an affectation; other members of SFWA might actually want it to do something useful for them. I happen to think SFWA can be useful; I happen to think it doesn’t do a particularly good job of being useful.”

–         John Scalzi

Conversely, to what degree were all members of the SFWA able to connect with Scalzi? Was he accessible? How much influence did he weld? How effective has his leadership been? Are there still SFWA members that are in exile? As a “shepherd” did he sustain the external faith (i.e. non-members) in the organization . . .  thereby causing individuals to actually want to join the organization? Did he nurture faith (or doubt) with the members of the organization? Did the membership grow or deplete during his term in office? (Note: Beale and Gould have both raised concerns about “membership” in their platforms.) Did he take steps to effectuate a positive culture within the SFWA?

I’ve never expected SFWA to do anything for me because I require nothing from it. However, I have the luxury of regarding my membership as an affectation; other members of SFWA might actually want it to do something useful for them. I happen to think SFWA can be useful; I happen to think it doesn’t do a particularly good job of being useful

–         John Scalzi

During Scalzi’s term in office, based on the answers to these questions, what standards, if any, did he set for future Presidents of the SFWA? Would either of the two candidates want to emulate any of his leadership qualities . . .  or merely view it as an “affection”? A true leader is able to extend his commitment to everyone . . . even those that rise direct in opposition to his own values, beliefs and concerns. Your own answers to these questions should help you evaluate both of the 2013 candidates. In addition, we hope that the candidates internalize these criteria and update their platforms to address the SFWA’s current short comings.

“I’ve been a SFWA member long enough to know that it’s a fairly thankless position, with lots of herding cats and dealing with aggravating minutiae, and I have a career to look after at the moment.”

 –         John Scalzi

In our opinion, Scalzi was no Moses in terms of his leadership and commitment to the SFWA. The past election results appear to indicate that his popularity was questionable. In addition, upon first review of the current platforms, it appears that a vote for Steven Gould is a vote for John Scalzi.

On February 7, 2007, Victor E. Cretella, III sent a letter to Christine Norris in the interest of one of his clients, PublishAmerica LLP, declaring that Norris had produced some defamatory remarks regarding his client, and requesting that she quit doing so. At first, Norris declined to agree, yet on February 15, after she acknowledged a second letter, she responded by posting a remark on the Absolute Write Water Cooler (AWWC), an Internet discussion site for yearning writers, stating that Cretella was constraining her to quit posting dissenting comments about PublishAmerica.

The AWWC group responded rapidly and furiously to Cretella’s movement in the interest of PublishAmerica. Consistent with court filings, on February 16, David L. Kuzminski posted a remark stating that “it’s time to report Vic Cretella to the Maryland Bar Association for attempted extortion”  and that Cretella’s law firm, Gordon and Simmons, “might not want the black[]eye [that] he’s giving them.” Kuzminski likewise posted a duplicate of a message that he supposedly sent to Gordon and Simmons, and additionally some parts of the Maryland State Bar Association, stating that “Cretella seems to be involved in what I would characterize as extortion” and that Cretella is “actively . . . furthering [PublishAmerica’s] unethical[,] if not illegal[,] methods.” Kuzminski added that he “fully intend[ed] to report [Cretella] to the Maryland State Bar Association.” Kuzminski’s remarks were cited in some ensuing posts on AWWC, the greater part of which extolled his response.

On February 13, 2008, Cretella sued Kuzminski for defamation in federal court in Virginia, asserting that Kuzminski’s charges were false and defamatory. Kuzminski responded with a motion to dismiss, stating that his articulations were just supposition or simply opinion.

The court dismissed two of the seven counts in the complaint, on the basis that the proclamations weren’t actionable. In any case, the court denied the motion as to the other five counts, holding that Kuzminki’s other asserted statements – the accusations of extortion and unethical conduct, embarrassment by Cretella’s former law firm, that Cretella took action against another author – all were proclamations that might be indicated to be false. The court held that “many courts have regarded accusations of unlawful activity as statements of fact.”

The matter went to the jury. On 2/4/2009, the jury returned a verdict for Cretella in the amount of $236,000.

BISAC: Literary Criticism / American / GeneralIt (Writer Beware™) purports that it “shines a bright light into the dark corners of the shadow-world of literary scams, schemes, and pitfalls.” Selectively? Maybe? Sure, until the scam strikes at home base.In 2007 it did; and, it’s a SCAM of EPIC proportions. It involves the estate of Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck (i.e. The Grapes of Wrath (1939) and East of Eden (1952) and the novella Of Mice and Men (1937) . . . yes, that Steinbeck. Huge? We think so. Was the failure of Writer Beware™ to report this scam an oversight or a case where they just turned their heads and looked the other way?What did this scam involve? In principle, it’s the kind of material that Writer Beware™ built its foundation on. Exposing scams that are relative to: 1) engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation; 2) breaching fiduciary duties to a client; 3) obtaining an unreasonable fee; and 4) engaging in conduct which tends to defeat the administration of justice or to bring the courts or the legal profession into disrepute. These are the types of claims that spawned Writer Beware™ and its own version of their boycotts; otherwise known as their “Thumbs Down” lists. It’s time for the “bright light” to shine into the “dark corners of the shadow-world” of Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Writer Beware™ and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers (SFWA). There’s one name we will not see on any Writer Beware ™ list and we’ll let you decide exactly why that happened.He represented “people who claimed they were defrauded.” He also goes by “Jaws” on some of the infamous writer and author awareness blogs. He was also known as the “Authors Lawyer.” His ties to the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers (SFWA), Writer Beware™, Ann “A.C.”Crispin and Victoria Strauss are well documented; he worked “closely” with them and had frequent correspondence with Teresa Nielsen-Hayden. He called Victoria Strauss a “colleague.” Who was this highly lauded “scamhunter”? Charles Emil Petit. Also known as Charles E. Petit, Charlie Petit and/or C.E. Petit. AKA “Jaws.”Charles E. Petit is also believed to be an Absolute Write contributor and frequent commenter on Writer Beware ™. Confidential sources indicated to The Write Agenda that, at one time, all complaints and “cease & desist” letters regarding Writer Beware™ were to be directed to Charles E. Petit. On information and belief, it appears that he did accept service of process for several defendants in the Bauer vs. Glatzer in 2007. Petit never actually represented any of the defendants. He couldn’t because he’s not licensed in New Jersey. He did accept service and then referred the case to local New Jersey attorneys. He was subjected to disciplinary action, by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, after a complaint was filed by Nancy Steinbeck who was the former wife of John Steinbeck IV, the son of author John Steinbeck.As of this writing, Charles E. Petit has not made any effort at restitution or returning the fees that he collected from Nancy Steinbeck.
