First of all, yes, Anders is a teenager, but after reading his material and his site, I think he speaks beyond his years. If I hadn't looked at his site, I wouldn't have known his age at all.
If your authors make it on to Oprah, they will most likely start demanding large advances and move on to a real publisher.When my authors and I make it on to Oprah or Maury or Leno, you won't say, "Gee, look at how well they did!" You'll still say, "I weep for humanity for celebrating authors who self-published."
Heh.So, I don't care if you watch. I don't care if you don't. You don't influence my business, except to watch you and collect the evidence I will use in a lawsuit if your unfounded insults and allegations go too far.
You just keep barkin', mama.Re: Yep I'm so happy for you that after 6 days of no responses to your dissertation that a teenager understands you... (Anders Bruce Homepage of a teen author)
Okay. That answers my question, even though you didn't intend it that way. This really is all about you. You don't give a damn about your authors.It doesn't matter if you 'watch' me or not. I'll do business as usual.
Tell that to your authors. It's only fair to warn them.It doesn't matter if I succeed or not,
No.you're the type who will always find a way to criticize.
Get onto Oprah or Maury or Leno on the strength of your writing? Not in a million years, kiddo. Believing in yourself isn't enough. You also have to write books that people want to read. You don't. That's your whole problem.When my authors and I make it on to Oprah or Maury or Leno, you won't say, "Gee, look at how well they did!" You'll still say, "I weep for humanity for celebrating authors who self-published."
That's too bad, because the thing that would impress us would be you becoming a better and more conscientious publisher. You've made it clear that you have no intention of doing that. I sincerely pity any author who takes up with you. PublishAmerica is a better deal.I don't live to impress you or anyone on this forum.
Yeah. You're going to rip off your authors, screw up their careers, and waste their time and talent exactly as you please.So, I don't care if you watch. I don't care if you don't. You don't influence my business,
No, you won't. You may not care about truth, but the law does.except to watch you and collect the evidence I will use in a lawsuit if your unfounded insults and allegations go too far.
Yikes! :eek Even PA authors at least get a proper listing with an "Add to Shopping Cart" button and all. I've seen a lot of Amazon pages for vanity press and so-called subsidy press books, but I've never seen one where the company model was selling through zShops.So -- here's a book that's selling through an Amazon zShop? That's their marketing mode?
