Confirmation of a Death Foretold
For those keepingup with the drama from the last post, I regret to inform you that my Kindle Direct Publishing Account (the KDP of the title) is now as dead as disco.
Though I cannot, even now, tell you what mistake I made to trigger the event, even after having gone through about twelve email rounds, I'm calling it quits on attempting to get a human response, or a reprieve, or even an explanation.
All in all, I'd rather be writing.
Good news is that, in a matter of days, Soldier of Fortune will again be available for download on all other vendors.
While that's going on, I am going to take a deep dive into my business plan (Side note: to date, even with Kindle, neither I nor my partners have hit the "making a profit" marker so—not much of a loss there).
Does this particular road bump hurt? Heck yeah!
But, at the same time, I have to ask myself what the universe is telling me.
I could be the ultimate fatalist and say the universe is telling me to stop writing, but, like my books, I'm of a more optimistic bent.
At present, I believe the universe wants me to re-examine how I get my work to readers.
It's going to be a slow and thorough examination, but for now, I'm all about finishing Libra Gambit and starting Fortune & Glory and Fortune's Architects, and an Urban Fantasy I've been toying with. Especially now my eldest is in his own apartment and I get to use his room as my office (ie: the first space I've had to call my own for over twenty years).
To everyone checking in, and especially those looking forward to The Libra Gambit's completion, I thank you for your continued interest and patience. Mr. Brown and I appreciate you, and look forward to a timely completion of the mission.
