A lasting impression.
I would have preferred to end my tenure as a writer with a published work of some stature, rather than a selection of e-books that never sold, but the choice was not mine to make.
The choice that is mine is when to throw the towel in, and the time is now.
At one time, I hoped The Chronicles of Mark Johnson would be my Magnum Opus, going out with an award-winning book would have made my time as a writer worthy in my eyes, again, it wasn't to be.
A lot of people tell me that having won the award is something to be proud of, in reality, I would have preferred the book to have sold instead of winning the prize.
I did write several larger volume stories, but like most of the books other than the science fiction which sold well for four years on Draft2Digital, they will rot on the shelves unsold.
