Writing is hard work! I once got an email from a guy who disputed that, and I politely explained to him that it wasn’t “back-breaking” work, but writing is hard. Competing with mainstream authors isn’t as easy as you might think. They have publishing companies who are willing to fork out thousands of dollars for advertising. Honestly, I don’t have that kind of money to advertise with. I rely on a strong work ethic and word of mouth from my readers.
If you’d like to buy me a coffee, that’d be great! I’ve made it as easy as possible. Simply hit the PayPal page and donate a few bucks via PayPal. Be sure to include your name in the comments during the payment process so I can thank you in an upcoming video or blog.
A lot of authors who helped me when I first started writing have quit and moved on to other things. Writing doesn’t pay much, I get it, but I can’t quit. My passion won’t allow it. So I’ll continue to write about strange settings and interesting characters and hope that hard work and a belief in destiny is enough. The next time you buy a coffee, remember your favorite author.
