    TrademarksPublicity.com (Blake Moody)

    A long time ago, I reviewed an audio series called Everything You Need to Know to Become a Best Selling Author by Scott Jeffrey and Dr. X. It was a very good series-- which is unfortunate, because as of yesterday, they've begun a massive spam e-mail campaign. See this thread: http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/...ad.php?t=36618

    Just say "no" to spammers. And report them.
    I am no longer here. If you'd like to visit me, please find me at www.jennaglatzer.com or on Facebook. Thanks!

    There appears to be a connection with these guys too:

    http://www.ambassadoragency.com/

    An agency I know nothing about. The domain for trademarkspublicity is hosted on a server that also holds Ambassador's email domain along with only a few other pages.

    I got three emails from them, yesterday. The "delete" key is a lovely thing.

    The other thread needs to be merged here, I think. The author has made an appearance.

    Moody spam

    I wrote them back and said, "I AM a New York Times bestselling author. Don't spam me again," then reported them.

    I wish I had a few zealous affiliates here. I tire of constantly recharging my cattle prod.

    Zealous affiliate?

    Hmmm. Wasn't "a few overzealous supporters" how Nixon described the Watergate burglars?
