A large factor is #appreciation. I feel more appreciated since I became a ghostwriter than I have in my four years as a #writer.
You can think what you like, but in my heart I know somebody saying "Thank you for your time," or "Your work is good" means as much to me as ten sales.
In all the over 630 sales for the series. Have I received one review, or a word of thanks NO! I am so taken for granted it sickens me.
People expect me to write another #scifi story, and nobody wonders how I feel having to follow the success of the #ebook that caused such headlines.
I can tell you, it is frightening.
Being a #bestseller puts a lot of pressure on you to maintain a high standard of work. Why should you care, you spend a few bits of loose change for weeks of work?
