Welcome to my blog! I'm hoping to tantalize you just enough so that you'll be ready to snatch up the book once it's finished. :) I will be telling you things about the characters. And posting snippets that I'm particularly proud of. So keep watch, right here! :) I am currently working on my first book, Waiting - If true love lasts forever and one of them dies, then what? And am plotting the two that will be asides to it. Watching - Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And, Wanting - Wish in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up first. Of course, those are all tentative... ;) I'm hoping this page will show you enough about me and my writing that you'll be ready to snatch up the book once it's finished. :) I will be telling you things about the characters. And posting snippets that I'm particularly proud of. So keep watch, right here! :) In addition to my work in progress I have edited quite a few books, which appear on Amazon: Whisper On A Scream, Willing Sacrifice, Hunger (Bad Things), A Winter's Grave, Maple Lane Manor, Home for Retired Supernaturals, Candyman, Smooth Like Latte (Something New on the Menu), Sugar Daddy (Something New on the Menu), Hell's Mercenary (Intervening World Chronicles), The Fights of Summer, Tickled Pink, Tessa's Dilemma (The "Tess" Series), Menage A Tess (The "Tess" Series), Captivate And Control, Mystical Mayhem, Phone Sex (Naughty Hot Shots), Addicted, Reborn, Birthday List, What Happens in the Booth, Redemption (Samuel Elijah Johnson Series), Black Heart (Black Heart Series), Solstice (Advent Mor Series), To Get with Stephanie, Forgetting About What Happened, Master of the Inn (The Pleasure Inn Series), Indulging the Professor (The Pleasure Inn Series), Inn for the Holidays (The Pleasure Inn Series), Campus Sexploits Deux.ttp://www.amazon.com/Annabelle-Crawford/e/B00DBEZ08O/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_3?qid=1373237715&sr=1-3

Sun, 3 Jun 2012 17:51:26 -0600 [04:51:26 PM PDT] I noticed that you saw fit to post my May 31, 2012 letter on your blog. Your knowledge that I write as Ken Charles is the result of your work for NNP. Accordingly, you are aware that that information was confidential. Since you saw fit to publish the information, however, you obviously have no objection to my publicly defending myself against unfounded attacks by (name removed), aka Annabelle Crawford. Taking down the blog post before 7:00 pm on Monday, June 4, 2012 and refraining from publicly linking my real name to my pen name will obviate the need to disclose your name publicly. It appears that you are still confused. I never hired you, nor would I have, unfortunately, given your lack of experience and educational qualifications. We were never in privity. You were an agent or employee of NNP, working at their behest, subject to their contractual limitations. You have no "intellectual property" rights with regard to the works that NNP hired you to "read and check". When NNP offered to let me "buy out" my contracts, one of the items that it wanted me to pay for was the amount that it ostensibly had paid its "editor". Accordingly, it appears that you have already been paid in full for your de minimus services. If you believe the services that you provided NNP have some value for which you were not adequately compensated, contact NNP for additional compensation.
Unethical Practices? You decide. Email sent to (name removed): You are not permitted legally to publish any of my edits should you choose to publish either The Mercies of Cinderella or The Naughty Ladies of Cotton Glen. You do not have any rights to any of my edits. Response from (name removed): Obviously, you are confused. You've made no edits in either work. You made suggestions, some of which I accepted. As NNP expressly noted in its editions and derivatives of The Naughty Ladies of Cotton Glen: Please note that final edits on this work are at the discretion of the Author. Our editors may make suggestions we feel would improve the work and reader appreciation, however, our editors are forbidden to change anything without Ken Charles' (sic) approval. This ebook remains an expression of his creativity and is published as directed by him. This disclaimer is in accordance with language of Section 3.2 of the Author Agreements which purportedly gave NNP the right to "read and check" the work, but not to perform substantive edits. Since NNP had no authority to perform any substantive edits, a fortiori, you had no such authority. Please identify any purported "edits" for which you claim some right, and the legal basis for your claim. Otherwise, in the absence of any legal claim to any such "edits", any actions on your part which in any manner impede, obstruct, or interfere with any subsequent publication of the works will result in appropriate legal action potentially including, but not necessarily limited to, actions for tortious interference, prima facie tort, and damages under the DMCA. If you are claiming rights under a third party beneficiary theory under the Author Agreements, be advised that the Agreements were fraudulently procured (NNP having no templates as required in Section 3.2) and granted no licenses to NNP ab initio. Accordingly, in addition to the limitations of Section 3.2, NNP could not confer any third party beneficiary interest on you. Sincerely yours, (name removed) (writing as Ken Charles) FACT: I have copies of my EDITS and his revisions back and forth - every step of the process. It's time to expose this rat for what he is. FACT: My edits or suggestions - call them what you want - are still my intellectual property and it should be exposed that he is taking advantage of my services. He has received editing services performed by me and I have not given him permission to use any of the changes that I suggested. Posted by Annabelle Crawford at 9:25 PM
