None more so than in my writing, while the Amazon rating for all books connected with my name rose to the high point of the last quarter, my rating sank to yet another low point-why the contrast?
The all book rating includes the writing for "The Peacock Writers" charity books, which have sold another two copies this week :), whereas the Kindle rating is my work and after the latest bombshell about my writing http://alsdomain.weebly.com/1/post/2013/12/the-price-of-honesty.html#.UqM81dJdXDM I am not surprised I haven't sold anything in six weeks and being honest-as is my tenet-I don't think I will again.
My work isn't affected by seasonal trends as there is no ups and downs in the sales market, only slight rises from the floor; like a punch drunk boxer refusing to admit defeat, my books stumble from one bad month to the next and onto a bad quarter, and finally to a dead year.
I always doubted my ability and this latest news drives the point home cold and hard, nobody wants to read what I write.
Please, no platitudes about a depressed market affecting sales, I know writers who sell books for 10 times the price of my e-books and by the hundreds a month and all I ask for months of work is less than the price of a coffee-nickels & dimes not dollars.
If you wonder why my blog isn't about pushing my books constantly at you, that is because I tried that last year and the plan failed badly, so, I decided to try and coax a few sales from FREE reads-bad mistake :(
