Sea of Galilee
I am sitting in my room, greatful that it's raining as the summer sun had me violenlty ill for the last week. While I am thankful for the breeze and the cool air, my thoughts turn to my friends in Israel because after several years of drought, the Sea of Galilee is at it's lowest for over 100 years, and unless there are several weeks of rains the sea will dry up.
Desperate times call for desperate actions
Not even the beautiful singer, Janey Kirk's photo, can bring sales to my romance story, so after three years and no sales. It's time to drop the book and say I wasted over a year of my life writing something nobody wanted - nothing new for me.
Warhammer losses :(
Five weeks ago our house was ravaged by a fire. In the aftermath of the blaze, I could have lost hundreds of pounds worth of books from www.blacklibrary.com/. Many like this are irreplaceable as they were limited editions signed by the writer.
How a writer stopped writing
You would imagine being a #writer with a vivid imaginatio, not writing would be hard, for me it is easy.
The beginning of the process starts when I view the number of #ebooks I have for sale hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/p/barnes-noble.html#.WTbArPQrLrc against the e-books that are selling. The ratio is 37: 1, don'be fooled by the fact my #scifi series has sold almost 800 e-books in three and a half years, one of the seven books has sold almost 70% of my sales - so what about te rest?
The next stage is the sales, not for the money but for the appreciation, the only way I can tell if my writing is appreciated is by the number of sales, and what sells.
The kicker is when I look at how long it takes me to write and edit a book and the pittance I get - if it sells. People say Amazon reviews help sales, I've never had any; there again, I have sold only a handful of books on #Amazon in five years.
