    My poetry has done really well over the past few years. People are reading my work online and also reading my books [which were published by two Internet companies]. I haven’t made any money, but money was never the goal: I just love people reading my poems and that feeling is not for sale.

    Do you have a success story you could share with us? What have you excelled in? What are YOUR achievements?


    A lot of my poems were published by United Press. Unfortunately the publisher is gone but my work is still in their books. I do also realize United Press was a vanity publisher, but I felt it was a start.

    Over to you!


    I have published two books , like yourself money was never the goal. In fact I started writing because I was unemployed and at interviews I would be asked ‘what have you been doing to fill your time ‘?  So instead of saying watching tv or reading I was truthfully able to say I have written and published a book…

    It raised a few eyebrows among interviewers  and I must admit nowdays when the royalty check arrives each month it is nice to think that somewhere in the world my little book is making someone smile.

    That’s wonderful, cassandra! How did you go about the publishing company sending you the royalties? I have not received any: at all. And my books have been selling well. Also, do you think 10% royalties is too little?


    @kitkatkitty I publish via amazon in both hard copy and kindle. Ypu can set your publishing price and the amount you want to earn ( that pushes the price up) .

    Amazon do the rest..


    Thank you, cassandra.
