Writers Digest POD scam
The Writers Digest have announced the winner of their print-on-demand contest, yet have failed to fulfill their promise to fairly critique all entries and give contestants a link to said critique! So I sent them the following e-mail:
Knowing full well that a whitebread magazine like yours would never
even consider a revoltionary novel by a Black James Joyce anything more
than an honourable mention, if that, the sole reason for entering your
P.O.D. contest was a possible blurb for my book!
In essence, I paid $100 for an unbiased critique, and with the winners
now announced, besides mail fraud I think there are a few other
violations of the law that I can nail you on, and since I already have the
lawyers lined up, I WOULD appreciate a quick RSVP
I have no qualms about pursuing this matter in court...those of you who have waited all these months for their "verdict" can understand WHY I'm so perturbed!!!
The attorney general of California frowns upon fraud, and since I know someone in upper management at the UPS, I think I can interest the Postmaster General in Writers Digest's little foray into mail fraud.
Jew Girl is available on Froogle for those of you who haven't made the commitment to read the most controversial book of the 21st-century yet...and the struggle continues!
