Readers are more important to me.
The most important thing this year has been keeping my readers for this blog, you are the reason I keep writing.
For several months I have not checked to see if any of my e-books on Amazon or Draft2Digital have sold, why?
On Draft2Digital I get paid when my sales reach $10, and the last time I checked, I had only earned $5.50 in four months, so at that rate, I won't get paid until June at the earliest.
I can't complain, I did say getting readers was more important than getting sales to me; so seeing masses of FREE e-books being taken-up should be pleasing; if only 1% leads to sales, I'd be happy.
On Amazon, I had not sold an e-book in so long that I can't recall the last I sold, or when it was. If I earn $1.50 a year from Amazon, I consider I did well.
