The book my editor and I consider superior to book 1 which won an award stands doomed to be binned.
A:- Reader apathy.
In the eight months since book 1 came out it has sold only four copies. In the time since the award in October it has sold ONE copy.
I have talked and blogged myself to a standstill, NOW it is up to you, the readers.
This book has taken months to get written, working up to 10 hours a day and all I ask for it is a pittance. Consider the time involved against what I get back, all those hours for at the best $2 a book :(
