Boycotted Authors

 

The Write Agenda – Author Boycott List

American Book Publishing “Investigation” Research Released: No Proof of Victoria Strauss’ Claims

 “Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.”

Winston Churchill

Pursuant to our discovery criteria, we identify authors meeting this criterion and proactively engage in boycott campaigns against them. Our efforts are intended to be professional in nature and focused on persuading thousands, perhaps millions of book readers, book buyers, bookstores, libraries, book reviewers, literary agents, publishers and book enthusiasts to help in these boycott efforts. Our campaigns are distributed via the internet, blog postings, opt-in emails and our through our published newsletters.

Boycotts, regardless of why they are initiated, can make sense and serve to modify a target’s activity or behavior. Upon request, we will always welcome the opportunity to review a target’s activities to consider removal from our boycott list.
