Unfortunately, my five day free download is not going well so far.
The numbers are so low that I feel ashamed to put them in black and white.
I am not someone who gives up easily, which is why I keep on persevering.
But it is desperately discouraging, particularly when I have so little self-confidence to start with.
I have the vision.
I have the words.
But I have none of the techniques necessary to make a successful sale.
Either you have got marketing ability or you haven’t – and I fall into the latter category. No matter how carefully I listen to the experts, no matter how closely I adopt and adapt their suggestions, success continues to elude me: That which works for them does not do it for me.
In all honesty, I do not know what to do next.
What if I publish another book – and it vanishes without trace the way ‘The Lyre of Logres’ did?
That is my great fear – and is one of the main reasons why I have published no novels in 2016.
I am losing my nerve.
