The gulf between dreams and reality.
My dream was to sell ten copies of one e-book in one day, the reality is that not even my Draft2Digital and Amazon bestsellers came close to the goal.
Forgestriker on D2D never sold ten in a month, even though she sold over 400 e-books, and Holding Richmond (my bestselling book for one days' sales) only sold seven in a day on Amazon.
Now, I have no goal as I don't know if I will get more royalties from Draft2Digital. In short, I am ending my tenure as a writer at its lowest point in a decade.
