She's getting her just rewards. She needs to be in prison right along with the guys she's taken stories from.

They did sign contracts. Why do you think they are in court now? Why do you think they are speaking out? And you don't get money for the book upfront. Some publishers give advancs but you don't get the full payment upfront.

You all have good points. Maybe the sister didn't pay them. If she didn't then she is wrong. But then so are they. There is no way I would blindly turn my work of art over to another without a contract. I can't see her being that dumb not to have them sign a some kind of contract or a waiver. Just doesn't seem smart.

Whoever is selling copies of Dutch # and Deadly Reigns 3, could you hit me up. Thanks

H-E-L-L-O! Teri didn't pay them which is they are all speaking out. Those books have been selling but she hasn't paid them. She got a multi-million dollar contract with a major publishing house because of their work and she still didn't pay them. That is just trifling. Without them, where would she be?

I understand the true authors, if they're in prison, maybe not being able to have their 'real' name on the books they have written because the state prison system might demand a percentage of their royalties. But still, no one, not even Teri Woods or any other publisher, should ever take credit for something they haven't written. It's just plain wrong.

Well, what everyone is forgetting is that Teri Woods is a PUBLISHER. And trust the men and women writing those books more than likely did get paid. Or they would be suing her all over town. I just don't like the fact they she hid the real authors. She should have acknowledged them on the cover or at least say thank you inside the book when she did her dedications. But it is what it is and she got paid. I still love reading them.

It's okay for Teri Woods to lie, cheat and steal but everyone else is fake and ignorant for talking about it? Something is wrong with this picture.

@ Mark, if Teri's game was so together she would not need to use ghost writers. She could write her own books then, now couldn't she? But we all know that is not the case. The woman hasn't written anything, not even checks to the authors that have made her name known.

Hi Mark. Or should I call you Teri? Which do you prefer? You're missing the fact. Those authors that wrote those books for her were not ghostwriters. She didn't put their names on the covers of their books and took the credit for their work. That's stealing. I'm sure that many authors use ghostwriters, but those people have contracts as ghostwriters and are compensated for their work. Something Teri, I mean you, did not do. And it sounds to me like you should be the one doing homework anytime you made a statement as stupid as you did about Teri starting this genre. Read a book! Read a few books! Icebery Slim, Donald Goines, ever heard of them? Bottom line, Teri Woods is a hustler and a thief not an author.
