Here’s something interesting I just noticed today; I no longer worry about sales. I’d like more, it’s true, and I have the feeling that this month will be the first in which I have less sales than the month before, but even so, I’m not worried. This led on to a second realisation; I don’t really mind if I never become a ‘success’. I’m happy with how things are going–I’m selling around a book a day, I’m forging ahead with my writing and because publishing is so simple and comfortable, that gives me a solid goal to aim for rather than just ‘writing for myself’ (which I’m still doing, but it’s nice to be able to so easily share what I’ve written for myself with others). Additionally, there’s always the chance, however small, that my books could take off and I could become a conventional success. From this perspective, I can’t really think of anything negative about my current situation.
Anyway! I’ve started a new giveaway for Imogen Shroud, this being Zombie Awareness Month and all (apparently). I’ve discovered that I really enjoy writing the little ‘giveaway description’ things for that site.
