A lot of writers and an author yahoogroup recently received an unusual message including a chain of emails between Beth Walker of Secret Cravings Publishing and an un-named representative of Siren Bookstrand.
The gist of it seems to be that Secret Cravings used a cover request form that was, let's say, "modeled on" the cover request form used by Siren Publishing. Including leaving in the original embedded email address which lead several forms intended for Secret Craving to allegedly end up with Siren.
It seems Secret Cravings was asked to stop using the form, and it seems they haven't done this. As a result Siren is "considering" dropping all Secret Cravings titles from their Bookstrand e-tailing site. And now said "considerations" and the entire preceding email chain, are broadcast to a bunch of authors, some of whom would rather be left out of it.
