In July, when I launched my book, I had 15 sales. In August, 7. So far in September, none.
I’ve got a number of positive reviews, on Amazon and GoodReads, but basically it seems that the only people who are going to read my book are my friends and family, and they’ve already bought it.
So I’m thinking it’s time to say, well, I tried. I thought I’d be able to write something that people would like, but I was wrong. Folks who know me said my work was good because they didn’t want to hurt my feelings.
I wouldn’t call the experience entirely negative. I had a dream, I followed it, but not all dreams come true.
