Writers’ acknowledgments of merit

Since the start of the strike of the Writers Guild of America, which began on November 5th, I felt empathy with their cause. I certainly can understand that the writers strive for a fair and reasonable deal that acknowledges their merits in proportion to the new methods and ways of how the entertainment industry receives its income and profit. Just to show my support, I reduced my writings on my blog site, too.

In addition, the past few months were quite enlightening. I published my book through Lulu.com, but so far only three people have bought my book as per the accounting records from Lulu.com. Shortly after I had published my book, three people bought my book. Two of them I know personally. Quite a few people told me in October, November and December that they were interested in my book and that they wanted to buy it, but no additional sales credits have been reported to my account at Lulu.com.

Since I found this a bit odd, I sent an email to Lulu.com inquiring about this issue. I mentioned in my email that a computer glitch, which is quite common nowadays, could be the cause of accounting errors. At the moment, I don’t know whether three sold books is in fact the accurate account.

To get to the bottom of this issue, I’m withdrawing the sale of my book at Lulu.com. In case you bought my book, I ask you to inform me and give me the Lulu order number so that I can supply it to Lulu.com.

In the meantime, I’m working on getting my ISBN number so that I can offer my book through other book channels too. And I still have to work on my German translation, which I had put on a back-burner because I wasn’t in a translation mood either.

So, now I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year, and a joyous path of self-determination and self-actualization.
