Fantastic Starts and Political Ends

I know some of my readers are excited but perplexed about my nonfiction path.

I am in the middle of writing books of all sorts: fiction, nonfiction, poetry. How I feel on a given day is usually what I am writing. So that slows my process down, but what I discovered really stopped me from pursuing publication is twofold: politics and copyright.

With the world engaged with the TPP/TIPP,  I cannot in good conscious publish my books with Lulu, Amazon, or any other online retailer without having the full rights and protections afforded to me as the creator. I do not know how the world will change after these dictates are forced upon us by corporations. 

I just can't. 

As I speak to people online, in person, and over the phone, I realized I am creating all the hallmarks of various nonfiction books. One person also has invited me to speak on her radio show once she is all set up. I knew then I needed a plan.

I need talking points. I need reference materials. I need ISBN's. 

So political ends turned into the fantastic start of Undawnted becoming a publisher. 

It is all a work in progress so if you have already donated to the cause: Thank you so much. We are so very grateful. 

If you are still thinking about donating, please have a look around Undawnted. All the Critical Acclaim is real. My awards are real. My bibliography is real. I set goals and accomplish them.

I hope you all have a great and wonderful day!
