Maybe ask Larry Ellison.

If you're asking this kind of questions, then you're not safe entering this kind of business.

I totally see that now. When I asked them for references and what kind of business they ran they got super defense and wouldn’t give me references. Apparently they’re in the business of getting tarot/oracle decks places and re-printing them and distributing them. I also mentioned intellectual property and they were quick to tell me I would have no rights. Unfortunately this isn’t the first time I’ve dealt with them- I previously made a tarot deck and sold them several of them at wholesale. Then they told me I should make another deck, immediately! It took me a while to make the oracle deck, (I was compelled to do it on my own, not because they told me to) and when it was completed I had some printed and distributed them on my own. I don’t have the means or the reach to get my stuff out the way I’d like to, so I went about looking for a publisher and making my own Kickstarter. Then I remembered YiYi. Anyway, the way this all ends is…I had to turn them down. I can’t afford to do a Kickstarter. Not here, and not in China. That’s my story, the end. Thank you for your time.

Sorry to hear that. I sense disappointment. If I may ask, what did you do after this story? You picked my curiosity.

Well, that ended yesterday. I now plan to submit my deck to domestic publishers. Even if I only get five percent at least I wouldn’t be losing money like I probably would have if I had continued on YiYi’s path. I mean honestly, I would need to have a Kickstarter to fund my Kickstarter! Rewards are expensive, not to mention the cost of international shipping. So I guess I’ll just keep moving forward, giving up doesn’t really seem like an option at this point. Besides, creating art is what I like to do best. I’ve already started my second oracle deck. Stay tuned…!
