Perspective, current and former "1921 PVG Publishing" authors:
Would you want your official book promotion to look something like this? -
"So the Vilma Banky biography is officially out. You can buy it through 1921 PVG Publishing or Amazon.com (or any other good retailer.) Rachel Schildgen will be writing an article on Banky's infamous wedding dresses soon, but I was so excited I had to put this up (and to think the little liars of the world just wrote today how my publishing company is going under and my books aren't ever coming out! The best defense is to just keep on living and doing what I'm doing. The reason they are so insidious is they say things that sound 'true enough'...but are pure bullshit. Of course both conmen have made a career of it.)" - "Hala Pickford"
Someone, please tell us how that is professional book release promotion? We would have even thought that "Hala" could do better than that mess. Someone get this girl a publicist, STAT. To break this down further, "Hala" implies that any retailer that doesn't carry this book by Rachel Schildgen isn't a good retailer. She also manages to pull her "New Release" into her current legal troubles, forcing anyone interested in Rachel Schildgen or her work to investigate further to determine the "...pure bullshit" Katie is referring to. She manages to call unidentified people "little liars of the world," her favorite "conmen" and more.
We feel bad for all the authors that are being taken for a ride by this mess that Katie calls a business. We know that the authors are investing their own hard-earned money to make their projects a reality, and it's a shame that it's wasted on half-assed, hate filled, irrelevant "promotion" on one of "Hala Pickford's" blogs. The "Official" 1921 PVG Publishing website still has the book listed as "Coming Soon" for a Fall, 2010 release.
Authors, you are judged by the company you keep, and "Hala Pickford" isn't very good company at all. I can just imagine how horrified I would be if I was Rachel Schildgen, and I Googled my name and found all of the links to "Hala Pickford," Katie Lynn Birchard and all of her legal tirades, tied to it. That must be unnerving and upsetting. If you want your professional name to remain free and clear of legal tirades, hate, homophobia, fraud and misfortune, forget "Forget The Talkies," and forget "1921 PVG Publishing"
Until next time,
The EXPOSE Katie Lynn Birchard Team
