Kita, you like so many others are missing the point. She didn't pay them what she owed them. That's the problem. They didn't ask for more than what their contracts stated. She hasn't even done that. Jennifer, she deserves to be slammed. How can you discuss the books and not discuss the guys that wrote them. People are quick to say they would be nothing without Teri. It's the other way around. Without their books, where would she be? She hasn't written a book yet. I repeat she hasn't written a book yet.

Thank you Kita, that is all I am trying to say. Not one of us knows all of the details of the situation. So to just assume and blame her for the whole thing isn't right. Now, if she didn't stick to her end of the agreement then she is wrong.
I just feel like this web site is all about bashing Teri instead of discussing the books, no matter who wrote them. We all understand that she didn't lets move on and discuss the books.

Both Kwame Teague and Caleb Alexander had books out with themselves as authors. They were flops. They knew what they were doing. Sometimes in life, you do things that bite you in the behind and that is what happened. They wanted her to put those books out as hers so the books would gain a lot of pubicity. No one probably knew that the book game was going to escalate to this point. Now, ethically speaking, yes she was wrong. However looking at it from the business perspective, if that contract stated that she give them a certain amount, then that is what she was supposed to do. If you bought something from someone that you did not know and they gave you too much change back, would you give the extra back to the person that you do not know? I don't think so.

Im sure she paid the real authors for their work. But come on they made her, I believe they asked for more and she refused. Then by all rights they should have had the option to find another publisher. Please remeber some of these authors are or were in prison. So if they wanted to renogiate the amount they were well in their rights. Plus some of these books were talked about being made into movies. So the green was looking good. Shame on Teri

No one is drawing conclusions except you. The real authors behind the books have done several interviews in detail about what happened. Teri on the other hand pretended as if these men didn't even exist and that she was the author until she could no longer keep up the facade. So are you going to believe a woman who first said she was an author when she wasn't? And if she lied about that, it's not a hard stretch for her to cheat people too. For years others in the industry have known about her and her dealings. It was only after the Dutch situation that everything became known to the public. Kind of hard to keep saying you wrote a book when the real author self published it. Question is, why are you defending her so much and not hearing the other side of the story? More importantly why would you support someone like that? If you enjoyed those books, then why wouldn't you support the writers of them? FYI...she is the publishing company so she had control of how things went down. She made the decision to not give those men credit and not to pay them. It's not like she didn't have the money. Every book was a bestseller.

Well TW if I don't know what I am talking about then most people don't. What I am saying is that there had to be a contract of some sort with a nomial fee agreement before anything could take place. Now if she didn't pay them then that is a whole other story but who are we to automaticall assume that she didn't pay them expecially when no one knows what the agreement was. All I am saying is don't be so quick to draw a conclusion and judge her. We don't know the circumstances of the situation. Also it is not just her, she is a part of a publishing company, so it is not just her at fault, if she is at fault. I just think that we should be discussing the great work that the originial authors are putting out instead of bashing her about something we don't have all the facts about

Jennifer - what you don't realize is that you don't know what you are talking about. Being a publisher does not give someone the right to take your book and not give you credit. Being a publisher does not give you the right to not pay your authors. Being a publisher does not give you the right to pretend and lie and say you wrote books when you did not. There are contracts, that part you have right - even though Teri denied that for the longest because to say there is a contract means she didn't write the books. But when you don't pay people like you are supposed to, you breach that contract. When you leave an author's name off their work, you breach that contract.
