I've been working hard on my new three month contract all week and barely been at home.
This is what I'm being forced to drive. Somehow I'll put up with it. But lest ye think it's all roses, I live in a city where the average traffic speed is 1.3 mph.
That's not the great or bad.
Now that I've finally got a bit of time to myself, I just checked my Smashwords account.
Great in that I had over two hundred downloads of the free parts of all my novels, but bad in that didn't include a single sale.
Hopefully the entire world doesn't think that my writing is just too rubbish to buy, and just haven't read it yet. Amazon has been marginally better but I think that with them it's mainly just chance since they really do nothing to sell our work. Smashwords is useful because they have so many outlets and I shall continue to hope that people actually get around to reading free 20% they downloaded and buy some later.
This is my own glorious transport. It's done 35,000 miles and is falling apart - like me.
