I realise I have said this for the past few years, but the last year has been the worst for a long time with steadily falling sales for my e-books on http://alsdomain.weebly.com/barnes--noble.html
As the only way, I can tell if my writing is appreciated is from sales, it is apparent that I am wasting my time as a writer.
I never intended my goal to be successful, all I wanted was enough to convince myself that people cared what I was writing, and making less than $0.50c a week has only convinced me otherwise.
My dear friend, Julia, always says these blogs are well read that shows there is some interest in my work. My reply is always the same, of course, they are well read, they are FREE
