It’s that time of year. The time when our book sales traditionally slump. I guess people are too busy sunning themselves on some chav infested beach to worry about buying books, so we must expect a dry spell during the summer. That’s okay if your normal sales are healthy, but for those of us stragglers who delight in every single occasional sale, this time of year can make you wonder whether you’re in the wrong trade.
I’m trying to push my lack of sales to the back of my mind. I’m editing my next release, I have just finished a new novel for Camp Nano, and with just four more stories to write to finish my horror story anthology, I’ve plenty to do. I’ve also started a new health regime, and am trying to eat less, and more healthily, and now work out every day. So far I’ve lost five pounds and can almost see my own pubic hair again for the first time in years.
Roll on Autumn, when folks are back from their hols and ready to start reading again.
