Too many authors are throwing in the towel on their writing career.
Goodreads give-a-way, I noticed was the life line for many self-published authors. I wasn’t online at the height of it’s free program. I was only back online with a published book in 2016.
It’s still the most influential book site online. Most others book sites like The StoryGraph, select the books they want list. I maybe wrong but I don’t think, from what I can tell, let the author list their books. Well, this is going to leave out independents and small press companies.
Just because one option is closed or out of budget reach. Don’t throw in the towel.
It’s okay to take hiatus for whatever reason, but if you have worked hard to come this far, why not go the extra mile to see how things turn out? Don’t be like the man mining for diamonds and stop mining within five feet of a mother lode, someone else comes behind him and digs the five feet and becomes a billionaire. I’m not saying that will happen but you never know.
Believe it or great classic are rarely written when things are economically sound. Most of the greatest works were written during some sort of uproar in the society. Let life inspire on what to write about.Real life is stranger than fiction.
