Fighting a losing battle.
Is Grace greater than sin?
A good question to ask me after ten years as a writer/promoter. Over the decade I helped writers get sales boosts for their books and contracts.
In the end, what did I get? Nothing.
I lost a writing contest because someone else cheated, they got a contract and again I got nothing. I was always gracious in losing but after a decade of fighting against the odds I give up.
I did the righteous thing and I paid the price for my honesty; I can't help wondering what would have happened if I'd been willing to cheat like others did to get the "win at any cost."
King Canute could not turn the tide, neither could I fight against people with money to promote books.
