An open invitation to be sued by JKR?

PA's latest stunt just beggars belief:

I actually walked through Frederick, Maryland in June. Had I known PublishAmerica was based there, I would have found their office (if they even have one) and egged it. Or at least slipped them a covert middle finger.

My stepfather ended up being conned by them. Serves him right, though--talk about doing zero research.

What makes them think that JKR's people will let these clowns past her front door?

And what in the world would make her want to look at unsolicited vanity-published books, given that she's already been sued for plagiarism two different times by vanity-published authors?

This is mind-boggling. PA seems to be coming up with more and more of these scams all the time. I suspect that they're getting fewer submissions and are trying to sucker those they suckered before.

Meh. They've done this before and will continue to do so. Supposedly (based on posts here at AW), Nora Roberts was plenty upset. Being that nothing came of that, there is either nothing actionable about what PA is doing or it's not worth anyone's time to go after PA. Sorry to be a wet blanket, but this is just the latest in a series that is unlikely to go anywhere. Now Willem's tax troubles or his defamation/libel case against Synthyia Darkness will bear watching.

As I understand it, JKR doesn't live in Edinburgh any more, nor is she attending the EIBF.

How exactly does PA intend to hand these books over to her?

I have a friend who is heavily involved in the running of the EIBF. I might ask her to comment on this.

They've got a PO box based there, so I'm guessing they run it mainly from someone's house, or they know that they'll get harassed if they post the actual address...

Nah, they have offices and such. Someone posted either the physical address or linked to Google maps a while ago. It's in an industrial park on the (I think) southeast part of town. If I remember the street view correctly, there is nothing on the building identifying it as PA. It said something, but not "Publish America." I looked at Google Maps just now, but nothing looks familiar.

ETA: Whatta you know? It's actually labeled in Google Earth. Here's the same location in Google Maps. It's the building labeled as "Concrete Jungle," which makes simulated stone countertops, but it's labeled as Publish America in Google Earth. I was looking at the wrong building before.

Google Earth also provides a PA address downtown, across from the Post Office.
