Reality of a Self-Published Author

Warning: PITY PARTY

***

I sent this email to one of my sisters on TUE/27 February 2018:

My book sales are low, too.

Bookbub has never accepted me, but I am trying again. Earlier today I submitted a book.

Fortunately, I don’t have to worry about making money from book sales.

I have sold ZERO copies of these books:

Ben Jonson’s VOLPONE: A Retelling

Ben Jonson’s BARTHOLOMEW FAIR: A Retelling

John Ford’s ‘TIS PITY SHE’S A WHORE: A Retelling

John Ford’s THE BROKEN HEART: A Retelling

TARLTON’S JESTS: A Retelling

I have sold ONE copy of each of these books:

THE FAMOUS VICTORIES OF HENRY V: A Retelling

Ben Jonson’s THE ALCHEMIST: A Retelling

I expect my next few books to sell just as badly.

I’m glad the kids liked the books [I sent them].
