I know this is only August and December is still a long way ahead of us.
At the start of December, I will be closing the doors on Alanspageturners. The annual fee is due and even though it only works out a few pound a month, it is one more I cannot afford to keep up, I will probably foreclose on my book at Waterstones as well unless things radically improve, I cannot pay £40 a year when the book is not selling. Patti had one good month but with less than one sale a month it is not worth keeping it on.
I am still doing "Hunted down" even though "Ghosts of your past" was an abject lesson in failure both in sales and as a KDP weekend give away(something I have NO intention of doing again), I have an idea for a 5th Patti story and may even bring out a collection.
It comes basically down to cost effectiveness and the blog is doing the work of the site for free. I may not make as much on Amazon (£0.35p v £0.99p) but again I am not having to pay out.
In the New Year, I am seriously considering just promoting.
