Will take a much needed haitus in writing.
It is the tough reality for Self Publishing Authors, who have to run to promote, giveaway, and try to sell their wares by themselves.
I do not know how many sites you can go to see where humor is a harder sell than most. Humor novels seem to be the last pickens on many peoples shopping list. Especially around Christmas, where the holiday charm leads to more main stream big titled books.
Somehow though, I feel at a finish line. I wanted Part 4 to be 'out there', and it is. It is refreshing no matter how low the sales are. Just that the 1000 pages of humor is what I set out to do, as per an 8 and a half by a 5 and a half paperback would offer. I accomplished it as best as I could.
The covers, the writing style, no more truer than in the last. It was a book that was edited by me, oddly enough, willing to put through my own language and style into Part 4. A unique sample of my "isms", slang, and grammer. Best editing was done in Part 1. Part 2 and 3, the editing done by the publisher seemed to be lesser and lesser as I continued on. Nonetheless, still ok and little commented on until I hit Part 3 by very few and a minute reviewer... That was ok. I suspect if I had more reviewers for Part 4, I would get a little more chagrin about my editing, but for 2.99 a book I would not really notice for myself personally when reading it at such a cheap rate. In Part 4, you can really see the Raw form of my writing style, and range of humor, quips, not being taking out for the sake of being proper.
For now, I shove the keyboard away. I leave Part 4 into the midst of this great uncharted bookworld universe... Maybe just a meteorite, not a planet, not a star, no no not a star... Maybe it was just star dust... Maybe...
Maybe I may be back in a year or two.... Maybe.. Stardust.
