I suggest reaching out to the world, beyond your borders and you will be surprised at how many readers you will find interested in your work. Serious readers who aren’t so much into a pretty picture but who are mostly interested your story and unique penmanship.
Many now world renowned authors have had to do this from James Baldwin, to Robert Frost, to Zora Neale Hurston. (You may also find her name written as ‘Nora’) Their work wasn’t a hit among Americans. But that didn’t defer them in getting their work out there. They all reached out to the world. And this occurred per internet days.
Baldwin work became very popular in the Netherlands, Sweden, and France while Frost work was accepted among English aristocracy but not in San Fransisco where he tirelessly tried to become published. Hurston’s work eventually as the others went world wide.
So, the bottom line is it doesn’t matter who is reading it as long as someone is reading.
I can’t stress this enough-always copy your work.
