Is it worth the time?
That is the question I keep asking, and being honest - I have no answer, even after eight years.
I spend more of my time blogging my books than writing stories, and I still feel I am getting nowhere. At one time, I did do a lot of promoting for other writers, but I didn't get thanks, so I gave up helping others. After all, no one did a thing to promote my books.
If I am fortunate, I make a dollar a day from my sales - to do that I need to sell three e-books, most days I don't make the $1.
As you can imagine, with so little sales despite using Google, Weebly, Twitter and Facebook; keeping my drive going is next to impossible.
