How about this statistic: one Print-On-Demand in 200 sells over 500 copies and that’s if you’ve done your homework and have thousands of visitors. What is that phrase: Build it and they will come. Hard to believe in that right now. And you can read one thousand how to self-publish books and still not have thousands of visitors. How despressing is that to a writer who just wants to be read, even by just a few.
So depressing I had two glasses of rosé instead of one with my Camembert sandwich while reminding myself that I have specific goals here and don’t go crazy over this.
Reminding myself that the reason for this website is to have my book read by more than a few family members.
Reminding myself that I do not want to be a publisher or a web tech.
I just want this book to be read so I can feel good about writing the next one. Reminding myself that I am a writer and my next book is waiting to be written – so as I said earlier get going!
