Added costs of publicity

What the buyer doesn't take into consideration
I've said at each turn, that being an Indie writer I need to weigh outgoings against the possible income - that's why until last week I'd never bought a cover.

My luxury item

 I knew in my heart when I bought this cover than it would probably not pay for itself this year - if at all - but I wanted at least one nice cover in my stock.


  Even though I only put up half the money - the rest came from my failed GoFundMe appeal - I still need to sell ten copies of the book to cover MY costs.

 You'd think with eight sales platforms onDraft2Digital www.draft2digital.com/book/235628, the various aspects of Smashwords  www.smashwords.com/books/view/719595 and the mighty site at Amazon  www.amazon.com/dp/B071CSVHFD that selling a measly ten copies would be easy, but no book outside the Forgestriker series has sold even five copies in over three years on Draft2Digital.
