Artisan Vs. Commercial Market Selling

By Drogo Empedocles – January 2020

In a Trumpian economy most of us are forced to be beggars even when we offer work in return for money, due to an excess of labor not needed or desired by the rich. Trickle-down Reaganomics has failed us, and is still being pushed on us by Trump and all corporate politicians who sold out. We must resist falling to the attacks causing the destruction of our lives and plan to not just survive but rebuild a better world for our children.

Trump’s tax plan benefits the rich, and diminishes the middle class. The estate tax is gone now so that rich children can inherit all their parent’s wealth freely without earning it, while poor children suffer without deserving it. Personal exemptions have been removed. You can still itemize donations, but the standard deduction bar was raised with an overall .5% tax rate reduction. Those basic changes might negligibly benefit lower incomes, but average to upper middle class households are losing thousands on whole due to other changes in the tax plan.

I lost some financial support despite my working through the holidays on several projects. I won’t be able to do as much free or low-budget work with others, until i can secure more income to cover my own expenses at least. my income is only $700 a year recently, so i feel like i get by with quite a little actually. I only currently use one sound program most weeks, and focus on word (writing) programs, which have glitches between formats, but i am able to publish that way. So for over a year i have only been using two editing programs.

Most people should know that any work has a price; and so my work is for sale, as with any artist; we need means to live so we try to sell prints and originals if we can. If people do not know how to want to share money with others, i am not sure how i can help them except to remind them by bringing it up sometimes. I focus on my work more than sales, because i do it for the work not the sales. If i am asked to be more of a sales person i would not do it. i dont know if stating that i will keep doing my own work the way i want no matter what will reduce interest in investing in me or increase it long term; but i really do not see many options to sustain my career legacy. I may get some temporary side jobs like working for Census, but even if i got a huge increase in income what matters to me is what is created with what i have ultimately.

SCOD social capital has increased overall i believe, which is hard to define since it is not income based. I am close to founding a tristate network for hosting art, music, and writing events; but the design is mostly socially dependent, using properties in WV, MD, and VA. The financial components like ticket sales and payments are totally based on how many people i can get to coordinate together. we currently have several proposals still being formed, for multimedia broadcasting and sharing local events, i can pursue these negotiations without financial losses. ive felt on the verge of something big over the years, but i never know when the tipping point will come because … and this is the hard part to talk about, the complex dynamics of partnerships.

I am proud to ‘beg’ with something of quality to offer in return. When you buy my work, you support many other people; because I collaborate with and buy from other artists and friends. To anyone that thinks I am begging by being honest that I do not earn much, I argue that bragging about how good your work is and saying you have been ‘financially successful’ by taking more than you need is worse than begging because to me that could be considered just as unworthy of support. Getting money from other people is not proof of deserving money, it is simply how people pay their bills. Also I am not just begging because I offer plenty of services and products in various fields. I am simply saying why I could use more income, as opposed to those who do not need more for basic living. I have many jobs, and i do them. I tend to give things away for free and make reasonable deals to work with lower income people.  I apply to better paying jobs, but I do not get them, and when i have had them before i cannot keep them for psychological reasons, one being i cannot stand authoritarian control because i desire to fight back against bosses the same as I would with any willful cruel or ignorant jackass; but when we trade self-respect for money we suppress our resentment which can fester and build to a break-down or illness.

I will not spend time defending myself by arguing against assholes, they are not worth my time. I am too expensive for them because they cannot pay me enough to work for them, and it is easy enough to block them and delete their petty comments. Their attempts to troll me are pathetic when i can shut them down easily. It is amazing that people will ‘friend’ me only to wait for chances to attack, without ever once being kind.  These are the type of people that would tell homeless street musicians to “get a job” too.

If fees are low enough with time i can advertise more without major losses on more websites; in hopes to get at least a few sales. Social reception is usually less than enthusiastic on a whole from audiences on platforms. Amazon is the best example ive had because ive been using it for years, i struggle to get a few sales a year even when i post the links and talk about them etc. I know it is not because my books are not as good as ‘Diary of a Whimpy Kid’ or ‘Captain Underpants’ which are best sellers, it has to do with commercial control of the market at the high levels. I mean sure we could argue whose art or story sucks more, but with enough exposure anti-authoritarian subversive books like ours do well with children and ne’er-do-wellz, which are a large portion of the population.

Ironically most of the people who buy my books are part of the vanishing middle class; not the lowest or the highest earning. There are more lower middle class people so they do buy more books, compared to the few upper middle class people who are interested in my books. I have had people with large incomes talk with me for hours, and i gave them books and they still did not buy any, so spending money has more to do with personalities than wealth; which is why those with less wealth will spend more if they have an income, which creates financial flow and opportunities in an economy.

All of these opinions of observations are reasons why many of us are not satisfied with status-quo commercial politics. We want more leaders like Bernie Sanders and progressives on the right or left who can be held to account by their voters who are also the majority of their campaign financing. We cannot afford allowing corporate sell-outs to further rig our own economy, environment, and country against us.

PBS & NPR Corporate Funding

Posted in Commercial Corporations, Crafts, Creativity / Imagination, Ethics & Morals, Multimedia Communication, news, POB Audio, POB Video, Politics, Services, Sales or Trade, Sustainability, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2019 by Drogo

Corporate Propaganda Influence on ‘PUBLIC’ Broadcasting

PBS is routinely threatened with significant budget cuts by Republican U.S. Congress attacks. Republicans oppose government public funding for broadcasting in favor of capitalist commercial corporate crony ownership over content. The right-wing war against journalism and documentaries labels them as ‘left-wing’ is because of their fear of public opinion. Most people (see the history of unions) have concerns that go against the grain of corporate power and pollution, so it is in corporate ownership’s interest to reduce democracy in favor of plutocracy. Environmental and peace programs threaten corporate profits, and both corporate-run neo-lib-con parties of our 2-party system will not tolerate sharing their national wealth hoarding in favor of resource desecration. [See Climate Change & Current Extinction Rate

Some members of PBS self-audit and comment on the problem of increasing corporate influence. PBS ombudsman Michael Getler reported “on what seems to be ethical compromises in funding arrangements, and lack of real transparency for viewers caused, in part, by the complicated funding demands needed to support public broadcasting.”

The LA Times reported on the billionaire John D. Arnold production of ‘Pension Peril’, which blamed pensions for California state economic losses. “In another such case, a PBS unit that funded independent documentaries canceled a film about the Koch Brothers last year, fearing the reaction of one of its major donors, David Koch. That underscores the cynicism of the steady withdrawal of public funding from PBS since the Reagan administration. It’s another example of the old story of big government getting off the horse, so big business and the wealthy can saddle up.”

Salon article headlines by David Sirota read “When did PBS become the Plutocratic Broadcasting Service? Proof our public media is doomed: Former Enron trader John Arnold is using the network to wage his war on pensions. Our most prominent public media outlets are becoming instruments for special interests to launder their ideological agenda through a seemingly objective brand. Starved for public resources, these outlets are increasingly trying to get their programming funded with money from corporations and wealthy political activists – and that kind of cash comes with ideological expectations. It doesn’t have to be this way. To preserve some modicum of independent journalism, Congress could simply provide the same amount of resources for public media as other advanced democracies do. Congress could then bar PBS from accepting corporate and special interest funding.”

According to Wikipedia – The following corporations have funded PBS programs: Exxon Mobil; Liberty Mutual ; Suburu ; Canon Inc.; Chevron ; Bank of America Corp.; Intel ; Monsanto ; Toyota ; Merrill Lynch ; General Motors Corporation (GM); Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad; GlaxoSmithKline ; British Petroleum (BP); Merck ; Pfizer Inc; Siemens AG; Dow Chemical Company; McDonald’s ; Columbia Forest Products…

A Truth-Out article titled ‘The Corporate Dictatorship of PBS and NPR’ reads, “On November 7, 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Public Broadcasting Act. The act set up public broadcasting in the United States, by establishing the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which led to the creation of the Public Broadcasting Service, or PBS, and National Public Radio.”

The Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 states – “It is in the public interest to encourage the growth and development of public radio and television broadcasting, including the use of such media for instructional, educational, and cultural purposes… it is necessary and appropriate for the Federal Government to complement, assist, and support a national policy that will most effectively make public telecommunications services available to all citizens of the United States.”

The original purpose even as stated by President Johnson was that ‘we the people’ declare that we want more than just material wealth; we want spiritual, ethical, or environmental quality of life. Reaganomic’s ‘trickle-down’ ideology slashed funding accountability since the 1980’s political deregulations for corporate oligarchy. Public broadcasting institutions now rely more and more on corporate and billionaire cash to operate, which is why PBS and NPR now filter what they play on their airwaves, so that they don’t anger their wealthy backers.

“David Koch has donated upwards of $23 million to public television. And when you donate $23 million dollars to public television, you get more than just a tote bag or a coffee mug – you get to dictate the on-air programming.” – Jane Mayer of the New Yorker

Regarding the PBS & NPR budget diagrams below, i doubt the overall budgets reflect the funding by corporations TO MAKE all the programs. They may only show the purchasing and distribution funding within PBS and NPR, not the corporate manufacturing money invested into the products they then purchase and distribute. Also “Individuals” may include plutocrats who donate large sums on behalf of their companies, as there is no evidence of a cap on individual member donations.

Self-Publishing Paradox

Posted in Book Reports, Commercial Corporations, Crafts, Critical Commentary of Civilization, jobs, Languages, Pub Library, Services, Sales or Trade, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2018 by Drogo

How DC area book stores handle major publishers vs. local authors in 2018.

Book stores are still stuck in the old mentality with major publishers, rather than allow the flooded local markets to flourish with support. Retail profits largely hinge on perceived ‘popularity’ of brands, which is largely self-perpetuating based on reduced whole sale rates, and exaggerated sales advertising to push the merchandise on customers. Book mongers still have a very snobbish attitude towards local authors, even more so now that printed books are in competition with ebooks. Book mongers, like other capitalists will often declare that “there is a DEMAND’ for what they are selling, just as housing developers do when they create a artificial demand by making the supply and cornering the market with advertising and debt based commercial production.

Here is how one book store describes their consignment process on their website:

“Our consignment program helps us accommodate the overwhelming number of requests from local authors who wish to sell their books and host events at Curious Iguana. If, after reading all the information here, you have any questions, email. Please do not stop by or call the store with questions about our consignment program. Click here to download our Consignment Policies and Consignment Form for Author. Note that we do not read review copies, and we do not accept any books without a completed consignment form and FEE. About events – We receive numerous event requests from local authors every week. Only authors whose books have strong consignment sales and broad reader appeal will be considered for an event on a case-by-case basis. Authors should not expect that consigning books will result in an event.”

Consignment usually forces the local author to be in debt to the local store, rather than provide them with any net income. Local authors tend to purchase more books at stores from commercial authors in one visit, than their books may sell all year; so even local authors are more likely to spend more on international authors than their own book sales will make in years. After a few years of their books not being advertised, but often hidden, the author must then contact the store and ask what has sold, and then pick up their check if any have sold. Now that there are more local authors, they are even asked to pick up their remaining books to make room for others. In essence local authors are treated like cattle, and told they are not worthy to make money, and they should be lucky to have a consignment deal before getting kicked out. Quality differences in the contents of books, whether self published or not, have very little to do with these market issues; as mistakes can be found with many mass produced products. Even National Geographic published the wrong image of a sparrow in a major commercial release; not just typos but the very information that is the focus of the ‘best selling’ book can be factually wrong.

Perhaps some day there will be a book store just for local and self-published authors, and their books will be PURCHASED just like the major brand names are now, rather than relegated to forgotten shelves and treated as though they are not worth the paper they are printed on. Perhaps some day we will invest more in our local economies, rather than giving all profits to a few rich fat cats that could barely care less.

So in this area there are basically 2 stores that accept local authors, but due to demands by local authors that they have a place to sell their books, it is increasingly rare that the small portion of the store dedicated to local authors will have room for everyone in the flooded self-published book market. It seems that self-published is a niche market that is not being allowed space due to corporate monopolist priorities. The competitive cut-throat capitalist monopoly model of economics, stands in contrast to the sharing and networking pluralist (multiplicity) more free-market model. Some business workers pride themselves for being very morally patient with customers, clients, bosses, employees, co-workers, and partners; in that they value them as fellow humans and are very generous to the point of pleasantly accepting financial loss as sacrifice for more happiness. That moral model is considered a bad business model for serious capitalists however, because survival success of business is based on financial capital, not ethical capital. There is a strong historic argument to be made that more financial wealth can be made quicker and greater by meaner people that take huge risks, rather than generous people who tend to give away and share more (studies show these people are often considered ‘poor’).

Self-published authors can be economically vital, if local stores open to showcase them as the main product. Some regional examples may soon show that people will travel from around the world to visit unique collections that support populations directly with financing. Rather than stores asking you pay to maybe keep your book there temporarily, and refusing to talk to authors in person or on the phone about the issue of slavish consignment; an alternative option will be to support stores that support self-published authors, which would make independent authors the best meaning (and most fitting use) of the word ‘common’. Possibly current store owners don’t want to be harming the local economy by practicing their old business models, but supply and demand and advertising have very real aspects that corporations do not want commoners to discuss.

The self-publishing paradox is that although the book market is flooded by grassroots citizens writing and publishing books, the means to support them are not part of conventional business models. Even alternative efforts are suppressed due to social, economic, and linguistic self-destructive elitism. Most people that write books do it because they love it or are best at it, not because of the economic incentives because it is generally well known that artists, musicians, and writers are not given living wages. The attitude that the voice of the people is not worth hearing, has never been considered wise or good.

SCOD Publishing Info

SCOD Publishing Deal Description

I prefer to explain over the phone, but here is a recorded summary: Drogo talks about making books for other authors.

There are 3 basic ways to publish any book:

  1. Get extremely lucky to hire an Agent, and the agent talks to a Major Publisher (they will not talk to authors directly) then their company might pay you an advance on potential book sales, and the author gets no say on book cover, illustrator, or any details; but you get some royalties if they keep it in print.
  2. The second main way is Vanity Press, where you pay smaller publishing companies to tailor make a book for you for hundreds or thousands of dollars that you the author pay to them, and there are no sales royalties because it is a one time deal.
  3. The third way is to either self-publish with a company or hire someone (like Drogo Empedocles) with experience and knowledge of how to work the formats, programs, and monitor sales. Traditionally it was very difficult to get published as the first and second were the only ways, and when you kept a book on the market the publisher had total control over printing.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you understand these options and the agreement for slitting royalties (case by case) BEFORE sending any files. When you send the files and say you want Drogo to publish your book, consider that your request, and if he agrees to do it, that is the agreement that is as important as any formal business contract, verbal, written, or otherwise. To be clear about your desire to hire us, send an email stating that you understand the agreement and 50% split of royalties of books sold online (standard SCOD deal) and want SCOD to publish asap.

This is what you get, when you hire Drogo as your PUBLISHER:

Although we have more options for controlling the look of our books (using the new third way), SCOD is still a publisher for other authors that want us to publish their books, so we need to be the final authority on the product (much as traditional publishers). We still need to put some limits on how many changes can be made; in order to not get stuck in perpetual time-sucking loops with authors. Anyone that wants SCOD to publish their book should have a few suggestions or questions in the beginning; but by the time they decide ‘YES I WANT YOU TO PUBLISH MY BOOK’ they should realize that we have certain formats and certain parameters that can work in order to serve multiple authors, make it affordable, and make some net profit. SCOD publishing is NOT a communal, anarchist, or democratic process; SCOD publishing is run as a representative cooperative with the publisher as the appointed leader.

SCOD reserves the right to format the text, correct spelling & grammar (if an issue), and add publishing information to the front and back of the book, including a list advertising other SCOD books (traditionally at the back). SCOD can remove from publication any book, at any time, for any reason; at which point it will be out-of-print with us.

The benefits of publishing with SCOD include: being able to talk about the issues with the publisher directly, true personal concern for authors and artists, and knowing that the funds go to support SCOD work world-wide with other partners.

Art – We do NOT negotiate with artists, authors, or anyone about any designs or illustrations for the book or cover, once we have the initial agreement to publish. We do allow you to submit cover art or illustration contributions, which will then be considered or edited to fit the book format or style.

Minor changes to the author’s original ideas, should be of little concern to an author that respects the process we have for making books. This method requires authors to set aside egotism and perfectionism, in favor of having their book in print with us as we see fit. Drogo charges low rates for work, because it is easier than teaching. To teach someone our process could take many more hours, and the pay would not compensate less potential royalties, which are typically few and far between anyway in this business.

Yes if you do it all yourself or pay more money to hire another company, you may get more options; with SCOD you get your book made in SCOD style, with some consideration for suggestions. Publishing with SCOD is not the same as an ‘equal partnership’ in this case, as the client relinquishes their trust to us, for our services, to make a book that we can have on the market asap, and keep sustainably.

By hiring Drogo, you want him to make books the best way he knows, and trust him to share a fair amount of the royalties. We understand authors often get possessive of their work and would not like any changes made that they do not approve of, and for authors that want that level of control we invite them to keep looking for another publisher, or do it themselves; we expect they will find the same obstacles that we encountered which prompted us to handle all these issues this way. Some authors do not want the pains of learning and doing what we do, so we can do it for you!

If you think you want Drogo (SCOD) to publish your book, first see what his existing books look like. If you like how they are done, and trust that we will make your book based on those, then you will know if you want us to publish for you. Once we tell you how much work it will take to publish, you can say you want to make more changes, or say go ahead. PAYMENT must be up-front before we begin work, because we have done hours of work for clients and then they changed their minds, and we did not get paid at all. Ask Drogo what he thinks, and he will publish as soon as he thinks it is ready for a first printing. If there are major problems, they will be fixed asap, and if there are only minor mistakes, we can get around to them eventually. Major and Minor corrections are done to the same edition, changing it for good; while other style or format or content changes may be published additionally as other versions or editions.

As a publisher SCOD needs to be able to keep books for sale as long as possible, with as many books as possible, that is why we insist on final control of how many changes and editions are made to the book, which we have copyright to print and sell once it is published. Once a book is made, if an author becomes disagreeable about it, and breaches our verbal contract by communicating things to the contrary; the only course of action is to pay debts, remove their books from online sales, and be done with them; this is sad and costly, so that is why all sane and polite authors should understand the control that I need to operate as a publisher does not put them in a position to remove or change their book. Requests for changes can be negotiated, and the author should understand that the reason for publishing with me is not to make things difficult, but rather to publish without much hassle, stream-lined as easy as possible, and sustain availability of the book to share it with others. As long as my authors know that I value their work, but need to be patient with the limits regardless of expectations or surprises, then that trust is all that matters and I will make and keep their book available for all, as long as possible.

SUMMARY: Ask yourself a quick question to know if you want SCOD to publish your book. Can you give up control enough to be content or happy to have Drogo publish your book in his own way? Sacrifice enough ego, and the book can be made.

1. If you need things to look ‘a certain way’ and will be unhappy with any changes in font or format, and want to change things on a whim, DO NOT hire Drogo.

2. If you want your book to be published affordably and quickly, the way that Drogo can do it, and you will be satisfied enough to have it made into a book because you like SCOD, publish with us.

Make sure you are familiar with SCOD work, before you decide whether or not to publish with us. Once our book gets done, Drogo can make some improvements or corrections, but it is entirely Drogo’s product and time-table (unless there are additional payments for changes).

If this all makes sense to you, and you prefer Drogo to publish your work, then he can send you the ‘SCOD Cooperative Agreement Contract’ which contains all the details you need to know. Drogo Empedocles of SCOD  (find him on FB or email drogo76@hotmail.com)

Local Authors and Illustrators Dilemma

Posted in Book Reports, Cooperatives / Communities / Networks / Travels, Crafts, Economics, Illustration, Individuals / Members / Monsters / Creative Writing, Organic Development with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2014 by Drogo

I often wonder why locals are not more interested in supporting local authors and illustrators, even those i have put in my books because I support their belief in supporting local food and history. It is not because they are too poor, because they have enough spending money for other more expensive entertainment like events, shows, internet, drugs, etc… so i was going to send out a survey to understand the lack of market better, but after thinking about it i think the surveys would not do much good.

i think there is just no existing market example; at least none established like a Common Market for local books. So people do not think my books are worth investing in, even when they are well made and even have the reader in the book! Of course thank you to those who have invested and purchased my books!!

Funny thing is i have given away many books for free, and have even published entire books for other authors for free. And people have actually seen the books in person, like at a festival even… still very few sales. Ok there is one local book store just opened last year; ill ask there sometime when i get the courage, but i have asked at libraries and other stores with no success. There are other local books stores for used books or historic books, but you would be surprised how stuck-up most venues are… they already usually have too many books that don’t sell enough they say.

Going door to door worked for my historic book for the town, but organic person to person has not worked for BOG PEEPS strangely… perhaps it is the income difference so they view themselves as lessers or equals; rather than benevolent sponsors…. even though both actually have the money to afford a copy if they believed in the product and it would not hinder their bill paying.

Hopefully a time will come when people view ARTS as a local ‘produce’ worth supporting in weekly common markets. We can make it happen by supporting local artists and authors with actual purchases and financing. Supporting individual artists and writers is not fantasy, it is real and we need to live it.

Self-Publishing

Posted in Book Reports, Individuals / Members / Monsters / Creative Writing, Pub Library, SCOD Online School with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2014 by Drogo

If anyone has a digital file for a book, i can publish it for about $100 within a month. That is a very low price that the author can pay for my services, to do all the work of format editing and publishing on Amazon and Kindle. It usually takes me over 10 hours, so at $10 an hour that is quite a deal!

Any book sales I will report and share with the authors. It is in my interest to do so, because we could make more successful projects. Identifying success potential is key. I have published over 20 books. Want more information on SCOD publishing? Find me on Facebook or click HERE to collaborate on a book project!
