I really do not know why

Some authors are prompted to cry

A publishing scam

In a business that can

Be successful if one knows to try.

We all grieve when dreams are a-dooming,

Especially killed by assuming

That a book printed “free”

Has priority

And guaranteed prospects for booming.

For me, publishing is all new

So I can’t assume much hitherto…

But that things do take time

Whether business or rhyme,

With the Publisher’s help I’ll get through.

Like selling those nice vacuum cleaners

Or neat-looking key ring carabiners,

Shipping cost per book

Subtracted from “took”

Without volume takes US to the cleaners!

If your wish is to print just a few

Then PUBLISH AMERICA’s for you…

If one wishes for money


You’ll sell thousands that to do!

Yet none of this came yesterday…

One should know going in how to play,

Potentials are there

The deal is fair

But do you have the guts to stay?
