And when this author is captivated seeing the numbers change on the Amazon best selling rank because of Amazon’s special algorithms, but not understanding how they work, it’s almost like watching a slot machine.
Amazon works with numbers and some people understand them, and others don’t. I fall into the don’t category as you can tell.
I’d like to thank everyone who has given a new-to-them author a chance and downloaded my novel and had a few hours of enjoyment.
But when this author is also at a writing retreat working on a Work-in-progress over concern is disturbing even in these lavish surroundings. (This is not a good indication of all of the rooms, but it is the luck of the draw that I am in this particular room.)
We have our meals provided. I go to them, at breakfast, lunch, and dinner because writing is hard work and writers need sustenance and comfort. Throughout the day we have a quiet retreat and concentrate on our writing projects. Even if we pass each other in the hall, we try not to disturb anyone’s concentration. But during meal times and in the evening we share writing tales encouragement and laughter.
