Dear MacAllister Stone,
I represent Pneuma Springs Publishing and our attention has been drawn to a discussion thread, which stemmed from the inclusion of a number of false and unsubstantiated statements about the our publishing operation in a press release for a book titled - 'Born 2 Rule'.
The link to the discussion thread on your site is as follows. http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=190924
I note that the contributors have been led to believe that the said press release was issued by Pneuma Springs Publishing and have thereby made comments that are uncomplimentary and which portrayed Pneuma Springs Publishing in a bad light.
The purpose of this communication is to advise you that the press release was not issued by Pneuma Springs Publishing and we have written to the Author concerned as well as the PR company involved to protest and convey our disapproval and disappointment about their action.
We are a growing business and we pride ourselves in conducting our business with integrity. We view the discussion thread as an unnecessary bad publicity resulting in loss of brand and loss of business and we are aghast by the fact that it has been in the public domain for almost one year.
We hereby request that you urgently investigate and rectify the situation, either by taking down the discussion thread or in any other way that will adequately redress the bad publicity. I would be happy to cooperate with you in every way possible. Please let me know how I can assist.
Please respond within the next 7 days, acknowledging this email and/or to advise about your resolve.
Thanking you for your cooperation in this matter.
