I am HAPPY to have you here, to have you express your opinions, etc. I am NOT happy to have you "play the system" on a site that I own. I respectfully ask you to stick around and not be so quick to react; you might find that there are a lot of pro writers here who will volunteer to help you learn more about the publishing industry if you'll be open to listening.
When Gena talked about putting the "smackdown" on a vanity press-owned site, I assume she meant Writers Weekly. That's owned by Booklocker, which is a vanity press, though that has no reflection on the writers who post(ed) there.
I am hereby asking *everyone* to put this entire discussion to rest; I'll delete all further posts on this topic. Time to move on.
Question: Has anyone else contacted the IRS about missing royalties, and if so, what kind of reaction did you get?
I didn't mention any vanity press and I don't belong to Writers Weekly.
The site I was on was Blackplanet.
