Well, anyway, from nothing will indeed come madness as I find myself writing out a blog post from nothing, at one in the morning, when I'm a little ill. So, yeah, this is going to be one of those really weird posts that's all over the place and I say the same sentence twenty times over in various ways. I'm not totally ill as in sneezing my face off and laid in bed ill, but I just don't feel right. It's mostly my stomach so I think if I just eat more fruit and eat a bit better I'll feel better soon enough. It's kind of hard to believe a vegetarian could eat badly but there you go.
Being a little depressed hasn't helped too much. I've been really tired because of a mixture of mental and physical problems and so I've not gotten much writing done this week. So much for my insane schedule. At least I wrote something in both Immortal Space and Caspian, and I still have enough IS to do double updates next week without worrying about running out. Which, by the way, I will be doing. So look forward to that. The depression isn't helped by the fact my book has only sold seven copies so far, but I do know that a lot of people (at least everyone I've spoken to about it) says that seven is pretty good. Especially considering I've gotten zero-to-incredibly little advertising. I'm also aware that this is something that takes time to build up and there's a good chance in a month I'll have a fair few sales, but it's pretty hard to not be disillusioned I am, by my very nature, a very hopeless person. Though to say I didn't expect things to go this way would make me sound very naive and stupid. I'm not, I'm just impatient and was hoping things wouldn't be so slow to pick up. Which seems like a silly thing to say after saying I'm quite hopeless.
Anyway, speaking of my book I have a small announcement, and a small apology too. My apologies to the people who have bought it, but this weekend it will be available for free. If you want to get it for free, then all I ask is that you leave a review. I'm hoping random people will take advantage of it being free and by having it be free for two days, I'll help increase sales when it's not so free. I'd love to have some proper advertising but, well, I have no money.
Please refer to the attached picture to see how not having a Kindle is no excuse as there is a Kindle app for PC's, Macs, iPhones, whatever.
|Look how cheap it is too! I'm practically giving it away|
Once again, my thanks and love go out to everyone who has bought it, more so to the people who left reviews, (super love to Fang for making a post about it) and I guess I'm sorry for this entire week (except for Wednesday) being about my bloody book. I actually do feel a little guilty about that. Doesn't help my depression really but oh well.
I'd also like to say some of this advertising/whoring has made me feel like a bit of a dick. But I'll get over that.
