Missing Since 1999
Okay. Maybe I'm late on this, but just in case I thought I'd say something here. I had an email sitting in my box for quite some time about being able to publish a book of my own poetry at low cost. Of course, I'm interested. The letter came from a Watermark Press. When I hit the link it sent me to an online information form to fill out and have free info. mailed to my home. There were no additional links anywhere on the webpage. (I had seen other emails and pages like this from Noblehouse publishing) So I went back to the email and at the bottom it says from poetry.com. Okay, I've published with them before, but I've never bought their ridiculously priced books or put in info about myself as it also costs. So I searched 'Watermark Press'. I hit a couple of the links, but nothing seemed relevant. I searched poetrylink.com (it was on the sender's address.) Also, keep in mind I'm doing all this from the hospital, so I have to search a site to be able to visit it. I don't have a box available to type an address and go directly to a site. That's why I searched poetrylink.com, I wanted to check the site out. However, the first site listed was not poetrylink.com itself, it was report.com!!! All these reports came up about how badly they scamed people. I'm talking over 200 seperate reports from people from all over. The worst part is I just told an old man this very morning what a great site poetry.com is! It's all the same. Noble House, Watermark, poetry.com, poetrylink.com, and many other names. please, go to this site and see what I'm talking about! Now I must go smoke a cigarette with my poor little broken poet's heart.
smooth people stray by slinking onward
to the limousine-society
found in alleys hot
with Humanity in passing
