Author, Victoria Strauss Failure to Produce Documentation of Police Investigation Regarding American Book Publishing, Internet
17th of Apr, 2011 by User795797
A couple of blog postings, regarding American Book Publishing, recently raised our curiosity and inquisitiveness. Victoria Strauss has posted on numerous internet sites thatAmerican Book Publishing has been the subject of an investigation. In addition, under its Alerts for Writers section, the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) also states American Book Publishing has been the focus of at least one police investigation. Consistent with the applicable Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) we have conducted some extensive (exhaustive) research with the agencies listed below. As a result, we have neither located evidence nor reports of any investigation involving American Book Publishing in these jurisdictions. The only investigation that we did locate involved a theft at the residence of Ms. Nunn who had a break-in to her home and also sustained damage thereto. Victoria Strauss and SFWA where is the investigation? Where is your documentation and evidence? Based on these results, we believe that these are very serious allegations to be making if no such investigation has been undertaken. In the interest of good business ethics, these postings by Victoria Strauss and the SFWA should be deleted, retracted and apologies should come forth immediately if they are unable to produce any primary source material as evidence of an investigation. Considering the lack of evidence, it would also be interesting to know exactly what the true motivation was and why Victoria Strauss and SFWA posted this information. A company spokesperson for American Book Publishing stated: As a result of these postings made by Writers Beware, SFWA and Author Victoria Strauss, American Book Publishing began a quality control documentation process with all their authors over the past 8 years. We have obtained permission from our authors to publish on the company website the comments and references that we have received from them with their full name and book titles. American Book Publishing has over a 95% author satisfaction rating and you may see over 350 of these author references at http://americanbookpublishingauthors.com." American Book Publishing does have an A+ rating with the Utah Better Business Bureau. This report may be viewed at: http://www.bbb.org/utah/business-reviews/book-and-magazine-publishing-companies/american-book-publishing-in-salt-lake-city-ut-8000038 Its interesting to note that Writer Beware officer, A.C. Crispin emphatically frowns on authors using the Better Business Bureaus to investigate publishers. She also cautions authors to rely on the Writer Beware and the Preditors & Editors sites as a better sources of information. However, in this instance, one has to really question the validity of using them as a valid source of investigative information when they fail to provide primary source material to back up their postings. Victoria Strauss recently has also made statements that implied that the Florida Attorney Generals case against Strategic Book Group is the result of the defendants delay tactics. Numerous requests have been made to Victoria Strauss to produceprimary source material as proof. Nothing has been produced by Victoria Strauss to verify these statements and she has remained silent. We have received information indicating that the delay in prosecution may be the result of a lack of evidence. Agencies Contacted: Salt Lake City Police DepartmentPublic Safety Building
