I had two books of my collected writings published. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
"Seeing out Loud". ▫️▫️▫️▫️
"Seeing Out Louder". ▫️▫️▫️▫️
Both sold out 4 times. Yay! Boom! ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
Fact: I never made a dime off either of them. (The publishers were both fantastic. Love them both.). But cool, the books are out there. I got what I wanted. (Although I don't have any of the ... books. 😞😞😞😞😞 ‪😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞
Whatever. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
If anyone wants to do a Collection of my writing ---- just take all my work & do it. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
You don't need to ask. Take the work. Publish it. Take all the money. Really. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
You don't even need to give me any credit. You can say that YOU wrote these reviews. Or that someone else wrote them. Or change them all. Or do whatever you want with them. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I believe Copyright is dead. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I believe that photographs as well as writing is a material. And artists use *materials*.
Take anything you want from me; anything.‬ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
And maybe don't get so upset when you think/know that someone used an image or detail from your work. Art is a material. Artists use materials. It's a form of a compliment.
PS. I have no idea if the books are available on-line or anywhere. I never looked it up. J.S.
