There is a great advantage to being unknown, an advantage I plan to use in the near future.
Being unknown, people have no expectations of what you are writing. When Stephen King wrote The Colorado kid it split his fans. am fortunate in that way, I don't have any fans to upset.
I found the book enjoyable, but there again I read the book for its own value, not a Stephen King book. BTW, although Haven (TV series) is based on the book, the series bares little resemblance to the book. In an afterword, SK points out that his book is based on a real mystery in 1940s, Sydney.
Much as I hate doing this, I decided to hit the porn market for a last ditch at sales. I did say being unknown had its advantages and this is it. Nobody knows my work, therefore I have nothing to lose.
I lost integrity months ago when I sold out and wrote a zombie book in a desperate attempt to gain some sales.
Do I like going this way? No.
Will it bring sales? Probably not.
Why do it? Why not, I have nothing to lose.
