No Numbers

Half of my web traffic is not registering, oddly enough after Boardman, OR came out to play. Despite taking away two days of data, my traffic was up 587%. When I have spikes in traffic, my books sell.

Yet, no sales are registering and no Swindle pages have been read. Please, if you see I call out corporate corruption, imagine what I do to my personal life.

Let me show you first-hand how much it sucks to be a self-publishing author. The good thing about this is that Amazon has assisted me in seeking employment. Thank you. I obviously make nothing from my books.

From Melancholic to Korporate

Thoughts for a new paperback book?

One corporate machine

Robotic and unreactive

Corruption is unclean

And civically inactive

Such pomp and circumstance

The one-ring global circus act

Authors do not stand a chance

In a monopoly formed with tact

Their corporate greed

Ensures profits breed

Planting an evil seed

In those who e-read

They slice and cut writers’ royalty

Only the king gets to wear a crown

Left with dependence, not loyalty

They remain the only act in town

Melissa Ann Meade

Noticeably Noticed

Silence Strikes Again

Some accomplishments of mine in one day:

  1. Scamazon was on my website for 3:02 (hours, not minutes). Waiting for an executive to reach out and REACT.

  2. My audience is expanding globally and organically. This means my book sales will spike, but not like Scamazon will pay me for it. If interested, please purchase from my website under the Books tab. Most of my purchases have been legitimate. They made a fatal error though on my last order. I have written seven books in less than six months. That is a lot of hard work to see my earnings stolen from me and to hold a blatant disregard to me who makes them money as an author and a customer who has to buy things from there because they have the market cornered.

  3. My largest performing platform is LinkedIn. As I near 700 connections (after deleting 100 over the past few months), I will only continue to connect. LinkedIn is a professional website, so they are interested in content regarding poor corporate citizenship.

  4. I have learned when it is deemed fit, Amazon Digital Services sometimes serves as not only an Expanded Distributor of their own company, but also moonlights as DBA Amazon. This is a tactic to skim royalties by stating they are an expanded distributor of their own company.

  5. Web traffic was up 800% last month before my big reveal. I should have had some pomp and circumstance, put on a circus act, and a show as to my big reveal, similar to their tactics revealing their HQ2. As they dazzled the country with deception, they lost sight of the business. NYC-keep fighting the good fight. The heart and souls are in the boroughs that are not Manhattan. NYC you got this. No one steals your souls and fight for your beliefs. You have an army, I have just myself. I support you wholeheartedly. Web traffic in just three days from my big reveal has increased 123%. Also, I believe it has had 389 visitors and people are on here now.

  6. My RSS has tripled in the course of 3 days. Thank you everyone and the thing that I have always been the most proud of is I have a 0% bounce rate like always.

  7. I will be awaiting a call from an executive. Not a supervisor. Supervisors are not sufficient for me. I want a big fish. Someone high on the food chain. I want an agent of change, I want solutions, I want honesty and integrity. When did corruption become cool?

  8. Keep checking back. We are only beginning. I have set up an official office and am ready.

  9. I have been like a patient cat and I finally caught the mouse. Successful preying is strategy, patience, and silence. No pomp and circumstance.

  10. The FTC needs to move on this. I am the most impatient person and will do this on my own.

I have four more days of being bound by agreement to offer the Kindle version for free for the Memoirs. I apologize, but I will never have a book of mine be read for free because it is a scam. “Reach more readers make more money” is a complete sham.

We are talking about Scamazon or should I call them Shamazon now?

I am STILL waiting for them to call me. I will have Melissa’s Manic Memoirs 2030 by the time they call me.

I sent them an email asking if they forgot about me to them yesterday. Re-donk-ulous.

I also emailed another agent and guess what? No response! The risk was not greater than the reward.

Copy of Determination and Drive 10.27.18

From August 31, 2018

This week was one of the toughest weeks I've had since the last week of March. The second book will be about this year. I can't see my sales, there is an error with the report. In the back of my mind, I am thinking my unemployment runs out soon, no one will hire me, and I am showing $152 in royalties. The royalties won't come to me until 60 days, and the book is not selling. I did the math in my head of the people who supported me and sent me pictures of the book, and it didn't add up. This week was full of anger, frustration, and depression. I believe in the book. Why was I feeling like a failure? I do not know what is going on with KDP, but I have 3 different views of the book. One is that it sucks, the second is that it's doing okay, and the third is that it rocks. 

I then saw it was being sold for more than the price I wanted to charge. I went into a KDP Community which sounds like unity and harmony. I asked a question about sales. A gentleman told me that "my book isn't selling anyways." I am destroying his mediocre, myopic mind in ranking. Feeling anger, I held back unleashing on him because he will get what he wants: attention. That's why he comments on every post. He doesn't build anyone up, he buries any form of self-belief they may have. I decided that the wild west isn't for me and walked away.

I then thought that I did everything I could in six months to make myself employable. What more can I do? For the first time in my life, I felt as if I was enough, yet not enough for a company. I could have laid in bed all week and cried. I decided to help people instead of moping. I decided to do an AMA, not to promote the book or myself, but to feel like I have a purpose. Why was I put on this planet, there has to be a purpose? I turned it into positive by helping others as I thought, maybe I need help? I don't. 

This warrior never stops working. I may have lost everything, but I found myself. To those that walked away, I think it is a shame because they would not be able to survive this alone. I can solidly say if they even try to speak to me,  

Copy of Direction Determined 10.18.18

I am doing a lot of YouTube videos because some like to read and some like to watch. I am expanding my audience even more. My channel is easy to find.

Amazon-I will call you back tomorrow. xoxo

What triggered the callback? I’ve been emailing for weeks. My video or $400 order today?

Speaking of that, get ready because I got the direction for the second set of memoirs. Can you believe I have content going back from 1994? I need to edit and then will bang that out. I have an amazing support system!

Facebook friends-special announcement tomorrow.

Goodnight.

Where does time go?

Copy of What I'm Writing 10.6.18

Memoirs 02-03 Kindle free versions go away on 11/11/18 and the paid version will go away on 11/12/18. Plan accordingly.

Reissuing this bad boy “an eclectic array of poems from my adult years.” Not linked to one person.

From Melancholic to Catastrophic

Want to see emotions?

Banging this out then I go onto Melissa’s Manic Memoirs 2018. We will touch upon Teddy, but I may change his name to subject matter. No capitalization. You can be your own judge of subject matter.
I am honestly slapping my resume, cover letter, and disclaimer on LinkedIn. If someone wants me, they can get me. The world is not changing in regards to mental health, so I will crank out as many years as I have to.

I am focusing on making myself stronger than I already am. I always get the last word and come out on top.


Copy of SERP SHOUTOUT 10.3.18

10/4/18: Odd, It’s baaaaaccccckkkkkk.

My book Melissa’s Manic Memoirs no longer shows up on my SERP. It is not present on the first or second page. It is available on Scamazon and if you buy it, I will have no clue. No one seems to be buying it, but I get messages about it daily. Hey, I am used to working for free.

Wonder why it disappeared? Same reason why a 5-star valid review disappeared, I suppose. At least their warehouse employees are now making $15/hour. Money talks and buys silence.

Copy of Loudly Laughing 10.3.18

Word to the wise: If you ever claim a knowledge panel on Google, check it at minimum three days a week. I am laughing. Scamazon’s links to my book seem to have disappeared from my first page after I called them out. Since 9/26/18, the trail on the book has gone ice cold. They just gave their disgruntled employees $15/hour and the dude is richer than Bill Gates. Let’s mess with some girl who wrote a book and is intelligent enough to know when strange things are going on. Hush money.

Time to go step up my SEO.

I have been busy and haven’t been blogging on here much. I just checked in to see what is going on with me and the world.

Crazy how I have to check on my web presence because there is no privacy or protection. Well, Google protects me. Another one of my favorite companies.

Copy of Words: my Weapon 9.26.18

I now understand the word big government as I attempted to search for what agency and then branch I would file complaints with. The web pages were either not found or it led to websites I didn’t really trust. The last time I filed a report when I had been hacked had never been acknowledged. I have my one go-to in my arsenal: words. I will write and cross-channel my articles . At least I stand up for and protect myself.

Coming soon: The Seedy Side of Self-Publishing

Copy of Fun Fact 9.25.18

When I was 29, I had to hire a lawyer. It was not a criminal case for the record. Encountering odd behaviors and paying for promised results, where little work took place, I lost. I learned at the end of the day right before Thanksgiving. I ran to the courthouse fueled with severe anxiety. I begged and pled. I had a few days to draft a legal letter and had to represent myself. He had stolen my money. I prevailed and won. I almost went to law school.

I knew something was wrong and always gather evidence with everything. I ended up doing a bit of research and sent all of my documents, dates, and a letter in to the Superior Court to call him out on misconduct.

Fast forward, I got him disbarred for a little over a year. I cracked open a can of one giant leech. After doing so, complaints poured in after I exposed him. I am not sure if he will practice law again. This city I am stuck in for now, has hired him. After all, why wouldn’t we? We are the most miserable city in the country and the home of Kids for Cash.

Now, it is with due diligence that I go after the injustices of self-publishing. I have enough evidence and can maneuver around the internet. I am not just an author or a writer, I can dig in the trenches because I am also an investigator. All of my personality tests confirm.

Greed will Getcha (PSA)

8.27.18

I am furious right now. My book is on sale for $14.95 on Amazon. No more. Please do not pay $19.05 for a used copy that isn't really used? Please do not purchase from outside of Amazon. When you do that, I only make $1.36. When you purchase from Amazon, I only make $4.90. I didn't write this for greed. I wrote it for society to be a more open place. I have to wait 60 days to get payment. I do not even know how sales are. I have reports ranging from $0.00 to $127.69. Obviously, it must be selling because Amazon keeps printing more to keep in stock. More places are carrying it for a higher price than I set. Last time I checked, I wrote the thing.

These companies did not go through what I went through. Companies can give two flying fucks about mental health. I hope I can find a real publisher because obviously, I lack experience. If you follow me, you know my unemployment runs out soon (very, very soon). No one will hire me for anything. Not even to write an blog post because I am crazy and they are narrow-minded and judgmental. Yes, it is very discriminatory and inflammatory. There is a thing though. Karma is always forged. Instead of being a leech off of the system, I wrote a book. I busted my ass and gave it everything I have. I have never believed in something so much. I will press a button and unpublish it, making it vanish because Corporate America and their greed do not align with my values. This crazy woman will fight and this crazy woman does not ever give up.

It is like the book is about mental illness so let's mind fuck the author by profiting off of her illness. Twisted fucks. That is why society is ashamed to speak about it and everyone is so fucking judgmental. Shame on all of you. I really belong in Europe. They don't manipulate your mental property.

Me showing you what corporate greed is. Jet.com would not hire me for anything, yet can sell my book for more than I set the price at. Sickening.

Ignore This, My Book is being Pirated
