This month I have sold at least one book a day. That’s a good start, I figure. By next year I’d like to be selling FIVE books a day.
I’m not in a hurry. My books are out there and new people find them every month.
It is one of the reasons that I really LOVE being an indie writer. I have got the world’s widest bookshelf. Anything I write is going to remain available for as long as I want it to stay.
This is also the reason I enjoy writing for a regional publisher. They’ve got my entire back-catalogue still available – and I sell copies every month.
Tick, tick, tick – like a steady driving clock on the wall.
A mile is nothing more than a whole lot of inches.
Yours in storytelling,
