(See update at the end)
Tina Engler/Jaid Black has her own narrative–but then, she always has looked at things from a very…special point of view, hasn’t she?
Anyhoodle…Someone at Romantic Times–Kathryn Falk, I believe it was?–posted some asinine note on facebook, crowing that EC had ‘won’ the lawsuit (hint: reaching a settlement out of court ain’t winning, cupcake), and other bullshit.²
That note was quickly taken down, with this taking its place:
Deirdre Saoirse Moen shut the last one down on the spot:
Having witnessed a number of publisher implosions, I would almost be willing to put money on what’s her face above changing her tune when it’s her turn to wait eight months or more for a five dollar check–but really, I can’t be bothered.
However, I wanted to share this with my readers (remember to read from bottom up):
While Jane has lost the most money upfront, plus the lost of trust; and while EC is in the midst of its death throes (however long those may last); it’s the authors, editors, cover artists, etc, who are still waiting to be paid in full, and whose reputations are constantly impugned by Jaid Black and her sycophants, who have lost the most–in money, and time, and effort, and in peace of mind.
As author Roslyn Holcomb says:
Via #notchilled/Courtney Milan, this link to Nina S Gooden, who was EC Managing Editor for a couple of years–before being fired, with no warning, in January 2015. I’m sure that several little lapdogs of TE/JB will come out in force, yapping that Ms Gooden is “yet another lying (four letter expletive).” I’ll say that it’s up to each reader/aspiring author to make up their own minds as to who is lying about what–and why.
