A couple of blog postings, regarding American Book Publishing, recently raised our curiosity and inquisitiveness. Victoria Strauss has posted on numerous internet sites that American 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.”
Victoria Strauss recently has also made statements that implied that the Florida Attorney General’s case against Strategic Book Group is the result of the defendant’s delay tactics. Numerous requests have been made to Victoria Strauss to produceprimary source material as proof. Nothing has been produced by Victoria Straussto 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.
We will be reporting our findings on the American Book Publishing “investigation” shortly. Stay tuned.
