    JK Publishing

    I don't think there's a thread for this romance/erotica publisher, and I doubt there will be now. But just in case...

    Erotica publisher, author charged for manipulating book sales


    GREELEY, Colo. (Weld County D.A.) – A Johnstown woman who publishes and writes romance novels is facing nearly two dozen charges after altering her clients’ book sales and pocketing the stolen royalties.

    Jana Koretko was arrested and charged Monday with five counts of money laundering, four counts of felony theft, nine counts of computer crime and three counts of tax evasion.

    Weirdly, if the theft of royalties claimed is accurate, they were actually selling in good volume.

    I have nothing to contribute to this topic, but I'd like to express my admiration for Sage's avatar. At last I know exactly the right word to describe my terpsichorean cavortings.
