"Getting cards, and letters, from people I don't know."
I felt like that for a minute the other day. For once, I thought somebody cared, I had an email saying a firm was interested in "Crowd funding" my next book. Basically, I put the money up front, get 1,000 people to pay in the fund, and they'll start the project.
I can't even sell 10 e-books a month, how was I to get 1,000 people to fund a project by an unknown writer?
Well, it was a nice thought for two or three minutes.
By the way, the next projects are so far behind schedule, they may not happen.
