The only solace
The only solace I take at the end of the eight-year struggle is that I leave at the top - in my opinion.
Having had back-to-back ten sale months is as good an ending as I can hope for.
I would have liked to go out with a four-month streak of ten sales and with the cover for Aliyah paid for, but that won't happen.
To pay for the cover, even though I only put half the cost up, I need to sell ten copies. No book outside the Forgestriker series has even sold five copies in three years.
