Four months after the award shown and all Chronicles had to show was a returned book - YES - a returned ebook, that is how bad things got.
Patti recently celebrated the anniversary of her launch, some celebrations; she is almost bottom of the sales despite having a four month lead on the rest.
The eternal question for an author. Do you keep a character alive, even if the book has died?
I enjoyed writing the stories for Patti, Mark and the gang. I did my best for them and loved them as friends but the dice were rolled. Patti's was last to roll at New Year and Mark and co had already had their day.
As I said earlier today, book 2 of Chronicles will be written as Julia is impressed how things are going. For the rest of the series, fate takes a hold. If book 2 fails, the series fails.
