Oh yes, dear friends, I have been humbled.
In a desperate effort to escape a day job I hate, I’ve applied for two jobs. One I didn’t get an interview for (which was kind of expected, even I thought I was stretching a little too much). The second I interviewed for yesterday and didn’t get. Good candidate, apparently, just pipped to the post by a more experienced rival. Assassination contract is in the process of being drafted as we speak.
And as if that wasn’t enough, it has finally come to the time when Not Before Bed has been reduced in price on bith Smashwords and Amazon. Since changing it from being free, I’ve sold precisely 0 copies. Nada, zilch, nothing, zero. This, of course, could be because people like free stuff more. But I’m not the line of guy to ignore the other possibility; people just aren’t willing to pay for what I write. So, the price has been reduced and we shall see what occurs next!
You would think these things would make me feel down and stricken. On the contrary. I’m compelled to not only push myself further professionally, but to create a better product with my next ebook project.
I shall not be defeated! GAAAAAAAH!
