Presently my 74 featured articles are unpublished due to the fast changing policies and style preferences of the HubPages team.

I had been checking for broken links, comments, and fan mail frequently, but a snip of an Amazon ad for a book threw one of my very personal articles way off kilter. I do not have the means or the time to please every whim of each HubPages editor. Plus, I had warned the editor that I would unpublish all my articles if the ad was not reinstated. The response back was that I had not proved or mentioned my experience with the book, even though the text paragraph introducing the ad was not snipped.

I will be vacationing in my home state for two months 7/2018-9/2018 allowing time to contemplate my relationship with HubPages.

I apologize for any reader disappointment or inconvenience with my present unpublished status.
