The lack of appreciation was the reason I stopped doing it two years ago, I always thought Indie writers were "All for one."
After today, I know that is an incorrect assumption.
I've always struggled to consider my work of value, this month with the ghostwriting going well, I had thoughts my work was finally being appreciated.
Then this comment turned up on Twitter - I'm cheaper, better, female, and American. :) - all I want now is to give up and go back to the safety of were I was five years ago, before I started to sell my work.
