Question: I am not going to use etsy, because as I was signing up they asked way too many questions on personal stuff; ssn, license, etc. I know it's a real shop and all but I don't trust them considering the ratings are not all 5 stars, it's only 3.5 I have to be strict about this, I don't want be ripped off or have my identity stolen or anything bad. Maybe the site isn't that bad, but I'm not gonna take the risk. Any place that doesn't ask for anything but your paypal info? Fiverr is too cheap, my art is worth more than 5 bucks and people on there expect me to give them full copyright of it. -___- I know it's almost impossible to make a living off of art, but currently I've got no hope to get any other kind of job so I'm stuck with this. Deviantart is hopeless at selling art too, people only wanna look at stuff on there or simply copy your image onto their desktop rather than purchasing a print. Also, I've tried cafepress and zazzle but I want to find a place that doesn't end up taking most of what I sell and leaving me with 2 fricken bucks. @Nick- Lol k.

You art will sell depending on how many people like it. I can give you some advice on selling artworks on deviantart. First showcase it on applicable groups, that's advertising; more people will see your merchandise. Then, offer commissions at your journal, and/or at your artist's comments at your artworks. If you want to be paid at paypal, why not host your website and let them pay you there? You can make free websites out there, but it's better if you have your own built from scratch.Tell at your journal that people can pay at your website. They'll think you're a big-time artist. (If you know any other place where people can pay you at paypal, then there you go.) It's just advertising, open a lot of accounts at art hosting websites and advertise there. Hope that helped.

You are TRIPPIN if you think turning in drug dealers is a good idea. Do you want to get your a** beat? Mind your own business, cuz they will find out its you, and it won't be pretty. You don't need to be the neighborhood hero. The cops will be all up at your house, and you can't get a search warrant because some random person said "oh, these people do drugs". Get a clue, please.

Had the same problem here awhile ago. We called the police constantly...everytime a stereo got turned up or if there was an argument outside...anything. If you call the police often enough, they'll do something just so they don't need to talk to you anymore. Another possibility - call the cops from a payphone and leave an anonymous report that you think you may have just heard gunshots. That should get them moving.

"Those dealers are going to start shooting up the block, start recruiting the kids, and start making you and all of your neighbors afraid to leave your homes." Or go back inside, smoke some pot, eat Ben and Jerry's, watch some TV, pass out, rinse and repeat. But it's all the same. I think they're idiots for doing that in broad daylight, and they shouldn't be selling to kids, but other than that I say no real harm done. Tip them off if you think it'll help. I don't know how effective it would be, more than likely cops have taken notice or someone suspicious has called already, but it couldn't hurt. Take it easy.

It's the decision of the marketplace. Some bad books are seized upon by readers and go on to become monumental bestsellers. On the other hand, some very good books never get off the ground. Through experience, publishers learn what sells. They are forever looking for that book. They do have a better understanding of what does not sell, and they reject that book out of hand. But... what one publisher rejects might be accepted by another publisher. (Sigh). It remains a mystery.

When I look in the bookstore for a book, I mainly focus on cover pages. For example, I never even looked at the hunger games since the cover didn't attract me to it. But when the movie came out, I read the story and realized how amazing it was. Books can be awesome on the inside but here is what I an most people look at when searching for a book: 1- Cover Page: Interesting? Makes me hooked? The first thing a person looks at is the picture, make it wild, interesting, make me want to look at it, and force me to read it. 2- Title: If I look at a title and it just says: Pie. or Cake. I wouldn't even hold the book. I want a title that will grab my attention and make me study the book to know for more. 3- Summary: DON"T WRITE THE WHOLE BOOK ON THE BACK COVER! A summary is not supposed to tell us what happens in the book, make it end in a way that will make the reader want to read, or strive for it. For example, "They had only one choice, to win or die." When I read this I immediately grab the book and take it home with me. 4- First chapter or prologue: Start them with a hook or an attention grabber. For example, "he was going to die, he new it..." Something like that. It shouldn't start like, "Once upon a time, in a scary forest, was a boy named Arnold, he was tall and skinny, blah blah blah" Get me hooked! Don't make me sleepy! These are mainly what I and other people usually look at. I'm positively sure that there are tons of books in the bookstore that are absolutely amazing, but they don't have some o these 4 qualities. Good luck for your uncle! Hope I helped :)
