As some of you already know, for the months of january-april, i took on a partner/investor/manager. while she was of tremendous help when it came to packing and shipping orders, there were far too many other issues that i wasn't able to look past, so i had to terminate the arrangement. this left me with a significant financial debt to pay, and a huge mess to clean up, since this individual had begun to do several things either without my knowledge or edification, implementing systems for selling, shipping, and accepting payments that flew in the face of systems i'd implemented over the past 16 years of running this label. i don't want to go into too much detail, but the entire scenario has been very troubling for me, and of course being told that i must reimburse a substantial dollar amount - which i don't have - has weighed very heavily on me, especially when i am now left to finance several releases on my own, some of which were entirely someone else's idea, and have already been pre-ordered by several people.
So, thanks to the help of my cohort derek rush, i have begun to pick up the pieces, so far as the mailorder is concerned, and as of last weekend several orders have been prepared for shipping. but there is still a lot to catch up on, and the mess is still not cleaned up.
I have reinstated my original disclaimer, asking that anyone placing orders wait a minimum of 30 days before inquiring about their shipment.
I ask, as i have always done, patience during this transitional period.
Thank you for your continued support.
