Perhaps a testament to my laziness, I finally sat down and tallied up some sales numbers (first time in a year). What I found (106k books?) has left me a little dumbstruck (Confounded? Nonplused? Speechless?). I mean, I knew this number was coming up, and I know it’s totally small potatoes in the grand scheme of things; many other indie-authors have achieved far, far greater numbers. Still, it’s kind of messed me up. It’s like I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop, like I know that at any moment that ‘person-of-authority’ will come up and tap me on the shoulder and say, “Just kidding. It wasn’t you, it was that other guy.”
Imposter syndrome aside, one thing is 100% clear: I owe you guys (you know who you are – readers, reviewers, friends, authors and allies) a really, really big THANK YOU!
So, yes, thank you! I really mean that. Thank you for slapping down your money. Thank you for taking a chance, and thank you for taking the time to read all my nonsense.
I promise there’s more to come. Lots and lots. And sooner than later. Sigrid Novak has many journeys and adventures to come.
