PX Me. (How I Became a Published Author,

We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you. **


PX Me, by Abbe Diaz, is already raising some eyebrows— not the least of which belong to our own publicist, who just recently enlightened us:

"Your story is about ethical breaches endemic to some of the highest ranking names at the most-read news sites in one of the most mediacentric cities in the world — and the media isn't going to touch it."


Abbe Diaz rubs elbows with Billy Joel and Puff Daddy. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeremy Piven, Harvey Weinstein, Brian Grazer, Mike Tyson, etc etc all sweat her. She's a best-selling author and the former "maitre d' to the stars." She's married to a multimillionaire.

Then why is the media trying so hard to squelch her latest book?

The New York Post, New York magazine, Gawker, The Huffington Post, and Eater have all published misinformation and/or engaged in other unethical deeds of varying degrees on multiple accounts about Diaz, her work, and even her husband’s businesses.

• Mounting evidence also gravely suggests that in 2004, the (then) foremost New York Times restaurant columnist, the head editor of Gawker, and a New York Times photographer colluded to misappropriate the nonfictional story in Diaz's first memoir in an apparent attempt to garner a "book deal" and/or "screen option" for themselves.

• Diaz has gone so far as to offer up to $10,000.00 for any established professional journalist to debunk her dire allegations against The New York Times and Gawker.

• Gawker owner Nick Denton forbade any writers from accepting her investigative-reportage challenge, under threat of termination and/or blacklist.

The New York Times has been notified several times of Diaz’s allegations that they misappropriated her work and then falsified a similar essay. Despite The Times’s persistent advocacy of “transparency,” they have issued an unequivocal and hypocritical "no comment.”

• Some of the most prominent names in the media have explicitly evaded Diaz's monetary offer for an objective investigative account and her assertions of blatant journalistic transgressions.

Hmm, what are they all so afraid of, we wonder. Read the book “the media won’t touch.”





What’s a serial?
Serials are stories published in installments or "episodes." Serials have a long history, dating back as early as the 17th century. Charles Dickens is credited with popularizing the serialized novel with A Tale of Two Cities. Reputedly, New Yorkers would gather at the harbor docks to await incoming ships and ask disembarking passengers for updates on Dickens’s narratives. Lately, serials have enjoyed a resurgence, enlivened by the functionality of the Web, eBooks, and mobile devices.

How long do I have to wait for the next volume to be available?
Two volumes will be released every two weeks. (In the meantime, you can follow the looong never-ending story of PX This and PX Me in real-time via the PX This blog and/or the abbediaz.com blog!)

How much is this going to cost me?
99 cents per volume. There will be 10 volumes total, so if you read PX Me all the way to the end, that’s a total cost of $9.90.

Wait, you haven’t answered my question. Plus I have other comments and/or a suggestion or whatever. Can I contact you directly?
