Author's Note

Richard 🍃
Thank you all for years of friendship, camaraderie, and for sharing your wonderful and endlessly creative poetry with me … I look forward to many more.

Much poetic love to one and all ⁓ Richard : )

"A SPECIAL NEW NOTE"
November 4th, 2020
I owe our dear poetess friend, Kira Fulks, a sincere apology.
Unfortunately, I inadvertently misled Kira by saying my poems are FINALLY published; therefore, (she claims) leading her to believe I meant they are "NEWLY" published, without adding that my book was FINALLY published in 2017.
She ordered a signed, personalized softcover copy of a 1st Edition, and upon receiving it discovered it was published in 2017, in turn called me a liar and instantly filed a claim with PayPal for her money back … which I approved.
One would think that anyone buying a book of poetry was doing so for the poems, rather than the published date … go figure!
Her comment to me in a Café message [quote]: "Your book was published in 2017. You lied. I want my money back. I will file a claim with PayPal in the morning. If you want the book back email a label otherwise it goes in the trash. [et al] … like the rest of this dubious ugly website."

The following excerpt is from PayPal's Resolution Center:
Fraud Complaint From:

The Forum Press, Inc. (Kira Fulks)

False advertising. On 10/15/20 Author posted on WritersCafe.org claiming book was newly published. The book was actually published 2017. " After years of being asked to publish my poems, it is FINALLY done. I hope you will support me and order a copy of your own to hold in your hands and enjoy, to give a new home. 😃 "

There was no intentional misinformation on my part.
The posted information beside the book offer is: "Added December 28, 2017"
The refund is made by me as a courtesy only.
Full refund of $19.90 USD was sent.

My Dear Café Friends,
I sincerely regret this one and only unfortunate issue with my book out of almost 800 copies sold, and in order to prevent the unlikely possibility of this from recurring, I've, therefore, amended the notification information to include, "it is FINALLY done (©2017)".
If anyone has questions or wishes to make a comment, please, do so by review here, or feel free to contact me by message.
I never want my poetry friends to become cross with me, or to ever do anything to make any of you unhappy.

Kira, I apologize for failing to make the information clearer,
Sincerely ⁓ Richard 🍃

Richard - you must think I passed away, well I haven't. Though I can't tell you of any one of your poems I loved, there are many, I continue reading your book. I have written more poetry and a couple of novels and short stories. The best I have done, in getting any of the stories published are, they are now available on Kindle.
I hope that all is well with you - take care - Dave

It's great to know about your book. I am very sure it is one of those that could be read over and again because of the silky feeling it leaves on the the tongue. I can say because that's what all your poems do :) But, is ita available in India?
