Without money, you need infinite faith.
I am not brokenhearted, I am broken as the last decade has destroyed me in personality. I spent five decades believing I could write stories readers would enjoy, and possibly pay to read, what a fool was I.
My blog is read many times, but it is free to read; despite great reviews for my e-books - www.alsdominion.co.uk/reviews.html - few sold other than my Science Fiction series (Forgestriker).
The only reason I keep blogging is because I paid for the blog and the editing software I use to write, by the end of the summer I shall have given up writing as that is when my blog and the software are due to be renewed.
