Something doesn’t settle right with the whole #LuluDotCom fiasco. #Amazon #Profiting from #BookSales while #Creatives get nothing? (#Rollcall) It’s time for #IndieAuthors to take back their power, by revamping #Branding #Strategies – for a post #Corona area. 📖💡

Years ago, it was a pretty big accomplishment to have your books sold at brick and mortar stores such as Barnes & Noble, but like anything else (including BN), times change. Technology is constantly reshaping the way we buy, sell, and discover new consumer products.

Coming into the publishing industry during the social media revolution; I was a young arrogant hotshot, who happily disrupted the snobbish closed off industry by utilizing my knowledge of collective behavior, making myself appear bigger than I was.

Since having no working capital, POD companies such as Lulu were lifesavers for self-promoting.

Lulu was great; because for $20.00 you could have your book available for purchase on every major shopping channel, including Amazon, which at the time was a kick in the face to traditional publishers, and banks who required circulation for credibility.

Sadly, like every good thing, it has it’s end.

Now, I don’t know what’s really going on with Amazon and Lulu, but all I do know is that I’m not getting paid for known books sales… Which is highly illegal; but as of right now, there’s not much I can do, just have to wait in line to be part of a giant upcoming lawsuit.

Does that mean I’m gonna take my book down off the shelves? No, that’s a lot of work, why ruin already existing PR and SEO? What I am gonna do; and what I would encourage other authors to do also, is switch to MagCloud, make your new content exclusive for them only. MagCloud does not provide ISBN numbers, no detail on why that’s golden.

You’re new strategy should be “straight sales;” not relying on Amazon or Barnes & Noble for anything, forget they even exist, instead just hustle and sell your books!

Rage against the machine, “Join MagCloud” like me!

Fyi Magcloud is an Israeli based company, but what can you do, boycott the whole planet?? I’d rather take down Amazon, even if that means technically sponsoring a terrorist state to do so.

Yes, I’m a hypocrite. 😆

Lulu has been updating their website, so with Convid and everything else going on, it’s understandable for things to take a little longer to process.

However, the company is not delivering with their promises, and they’re not responding to consumer complaints.

In my case for example, a friend of mine purchased my book, and it was delivered internationally to her address in February.

No invoices are available, so there could have been other sales made.

It is now mid June, and I still haven’t been paid.

One of the perks of publishing through Lulu is their Global Reach Program, which is free when you purchase a copy of your own book. This makes your book available on 3rd party retail sites such as Amazon. So when book sales are made via Amazon; UK, JP, IN, ect.. Indie Authors such as myself have no way of knowing, because if the book was not published directly through KDP, (Kindle Direct Publishing) Amazon says they have no way of tracking the sale.

This does not include other retailers such as Barnes and Noble or independent distributors; who could buy my book, resale it, and I’d have no way of knowing or getting paid.

#WordsToTheWise

Went driving to get food today, by 8pm almost everything was closed, signs still said open but they were closed. Taco Bell’s computers down, what’s new lol? All other places that were open required a mask to enter, they were dead empty btw, ha ha, sucks to be them… Segregate the population based on a lie, I hope your business fails too bitch!

Then I saw cops pulling people over. I don’t understand with everybody out of work; business’s not even legally allowed to stay open, and nationalwide protests because of police brutality, why in the fuck do cops still think it’s a good idea to harras the public? Are they fucking brain dead? Like leave people the fuck alone already?! If police are seriously that dumb and insensitive, they deserve to be federally defunded, not to mention shot when everyone starts to really snap. Law Enforcement is the largest US domestic terrorist organization. If I had things my way, every boy in blue would be given the death penalty just for identifying with the badge, and no it doesn’t make me a monster for wanting to clean up the streets from nazi trash. Fuck Antifa too! I’ve started Marxist communities years ago, words to the wise, communism doesn’t fucking work.

Politicians need to stop being bitches and come forward about what their masters are telling them, otherwise the little people are gonna burn you all out of office when you least expect it. It’s gonna get bloody, the people are gonna go wild! Mark my words, they are going to cannibalize every state representative and political figure in office.

So get it together please. Stop trying to divide up the population, and stop trying to enforce nonsense laws that greatly affect our health negatively.

I’m not anti #Amazon, & I’m not mad at @Luludotcom, but I just want people to know the #Truth that if you buy my #Book on @Amazon rn I don’t get paid. 😔 So, please don’t buy #MyBook on Amazon, bc I don’t get a dime from it. @AmazonKDP @AmazonPub #Publishing Buy it from #MagCloud instead!.. And it’s cheaper!!

I’ve had known sales that have been received by the purchaser since February, and I have not gotten paid. Those are just sales I know about because my friend was the buyer, had she not sent me the screenshot I would have no idea a book was bought.
