Posted in: e-book publishers behaving badly?, e-pubbed authors behaving like fucktards?
I received an email the other day informing me that AP Miller AKA Patti Rebmann has got a new job. Apparently she’s the acquisitions editor at the soon-to-be-opened (slightly dodgy looking) XoXo Publishing.
You guys remember Patti right? She’s that imbecile who emerged at the height of the Mardi Gras publishing scandal.
Remember this love letter she wrote to me?
Karen Scott has a big mouth when it comes to slandering authors. Seems I am not the only one being attacked here either. She knows NOTHING about writing or publishing yet finds it necessary to post advise to authors regarding their career! And how much of a college education have she had?? NONE. What are her writing credits?? BOOK REVIEWS…Author Groupie…
Yeah, she loved me loads.

Pray tell who are the Ninni Group?
The name seems quite apt though, don’t you think? *g*
It strikes me that there is no information about who actually owns the company. None. It doesn’t even state who the editors are. They’re due to open in October for Oprah’s sake.
The only names that were listed on the website were the following ‘authors’:
Angelique La Mone
Ever heard of any of them? No? Me neither.
Surely for the sake of transparency, they should at least list who the key principles are?
I have to say, I was less surprised by the discovery that The Batshit Loony One is an acquisitions editor for a yet-to-be-opened new e-press, than I was when I discovered that she was an author over at Noble Romance.
Jill Noble, what were you thinking?
Oh well, I guess even imbeciles deserve love too.
By the way, does anybody know anything about XoXo?
Thanks to you-know-who for the heads up
