Moving Away from Lulu and Other Fee-Based Platforms

I have been trying to publish my chapbooks and other stories, but fee based platforms have gotten their rules and polices in the way.

That is quite disconcerting. All I want to do is publish my poetry and novels. I didn't believe such actions warranted an IRS form and forced revenue edict. I am disabled. I am not going to make enough to pay taxes on for years.

I am not in the biz to make a landslide. I love to entertain. That's what I do in the creative writing field. I am too ill for book tours or anything else. It's to keep my mind busy while I am stuck most days in bed (22+ hours, most of that is zzzz).

I have loads of experience in various fields as well as a Masters degree in Teaching and Learning with Technology. My website is my stage and my classroom. Anyone who ventures here will receive a first rate creative writing, literature, mythology, and arts education.

So I find the demands of corporations and the IRS just a little comical to say the least. I will have to find a new way of communicating myself to my audience.

I'm taking suggestions.

Habitue did drop today. If you would like a copy, then let me know via my social media page on Facebook and Twitter where this article will be posted. It's a short chapbook with a handful of poems about habit forming behaviors.

Maybe make a donation of a few bucks to help me with my technology expenses? I do everything from scratch these days. So every penny is appreciated. I take Paypal. Maybe that will work...

See, I am still working out the rough patches. 

 

 

Being a writer should not take a corporate intervention or demands of the IRS, I should be allowed to be the adult I am. I file my taxes as appropriate. I can do that with a simple printout of what I made between two dates as already available via the Lulu software in my account settings.

I think it's time to rethink the writing business because it's no business of anyone's except my own.

If the IRS disagrees, then maybe it is time to abolish the IRS.

Have a great and wonderful day.
