I got this e-mail this morning:

Apparently, Teresa Wayne has transfered all the old Mardi Gras Publishing books to LA MEDIA. Yes all the ones that went to print now say LA Media on them, all except Kenna Fallon’s book Untamed.

Is this true? Can any former Mardi Gras authors out there, search for their print books at Barnes and Noble to double check?

The e-mail went onto say that apparently a lot of these authors didn’t sign an agreement for their books to be sold at LA Media.

Once a ISBN is used once for a company, the # is listed world wide… under the company. to change it is a criminal act because the authors didn’t sign on to be part of the new company.

Also allegedly, Teresa Jacobs didn’t pay some of the authors for their print books:

She never paid anyone for their print, and gave us a bogus print fee of about $400 when the fee is about $100. So she still cheating and stealing off many authors who got their rights back and moved on.

Can anybody verify this, because surely if the above is true, then Teresa Jacobs is being a very very naughty girl?

I don’t know how accurate this is, but apparently this is what the CEO of Mardi Gras Publishing had to say in response to some of the comments that have been floating around, re the closure of MGP. (Bare in mind this info was posted by an anonymous source, so cannot be taken as gospel.)

Hmmm… Hormonal females eh? Nice…

Incidentally, Teresa, if these aren’t your words, just let me know, and I’ll amend accordingly. Although judging from this report of your past unethical behaviour, I have a feeling that the words were indeed yours.

Oh feeling much better now, TTG even persuaded me that going for a walk in the park was a good idea. He was right.

Anyway, apparently Desiree Erotique hasn’t been paid any royalties for her book for several months. The guilty ones this time, are Chippewa Publishing.

I also got the following e-mail about Mardi Gras Publishing:

Smoke and fire, people, smoke and fire. Anybody know any different, you’re welcomed to e-mail me.

By the way, don’t these people know that music on a ‘professional website’ is a bit, ya know… irritating?
