We have come to the decision to sever our business relationship with Eric Schweig. This Site will no longer serve as a source of Eric Schweig information.
We wish him well!
Please see below for answers to some of the questions we have been receiving.
A Bit Of Explanation:
Without saying too much, our decision - to answer the very many queries we have had on this subject - was reached after long & hard deliberation. There was no "falling out" or "flare-up" that caused a spontaneous, reactive-type decision. Rather it was a drawn out "trail of tears" we grew weary of. When a relationship fails to satisfy, it usually ends. That's life. As in any relationship, both parties must be honest & open with one another, dedicated to achieving a common goal, and committed to building trust. Lacking in one or more of these ... it fails. This was no different. Without cooperation, mutual respect, communication, and vision, most trails lead to nowhere. Especially so when there is outside interference from third parties.
We are sorry that this has been the case. The scales were tipped; the negatives eventually began to outweigh the positives. Our objective was simple & straightforward; a professional promotion of an artist's work. To this end, we are quite proud of what we, and we alone, accomplished.
Though part of us
regrets this decision, we will not look back. It is best, we believe, for all
concerned. Inevitably, rumors will
swirl. We only ask that you consult with us before believing them!
The main reason is because it's a long story. Brief answers leave too much to the imagination, consequently allowing for much misinterpretation. There is no simple, concise answer as to why ... other than, perhaps, that under the circumstances, we just got tired of it.
Yes, if you can call it that. The core of this "fan" club, and associates, are the very people who threw every road block they could think of in our path. They are concerned with but one thing, elevating their feeling of self-importance. Truth is a foreign notion. A real fan club would be supportive of endeavors enhancing the object of their affection's well-being. Not so with this bunch. Why? Because they weren't getting the "glory." Obsessive possessiveness does very strange things!
We have nothing to do with it, and purposefully stay "out of the loop." We have no idea.
No. Not at this time.
It is a matter of principal with us. There are some very good sites out there. We used to link to some of them. At this point in time, we feel strongly that we do not want to assist the above mentioned "fan" club in ANY way, directly or indirectly. A link to an Eric Schweig site invariably leads there. We will not have any part in that.
We simply continue doing what we do. We have one of the most visible sites on the Net. Good things happen.
It is a great relief to be "free" of the Eric Schweig hangers-on. We hope that they have the good sense to quietly enjoy their spoils, as vultures are wont to do. If not, we are no longer encumbered by our own interests in the matter. We will speak quite frankly if pressed.
Why this tone? We have had a long standing "relationship" with these people. We know their patterns. Their actions are like finger prints. 'Nuff said ... for now.
Just because we wanted to ... and due to the ever-present "popular demand!"
No, absolutely not!
Because time changes things ... it appears the the Official Site is run by different folks. At the very least, their attitude toward us has changed. Time to bury the hatchet!
