I tried to be clever this time, by uploading the novel to the German site ePubli. They then distribute to other ebook stores, including Kindle... where it will probably slumber undiscovered like my previous works. Why take this detour? Because I live in Germany and had the naive hope that ePubli might be a platform with promotional potential to aid discoverablity. But no... they advise me to use social networking... which explains my clumsy attempt (see yesterday's post) to establish a presence on Goodreads.
Ironic that a couple of days ago I got an email from Amazon announcing the forthcoming payment of amounts due to me as an author. I wonder if this time it will cover the cost of buying a pack of cigarettes?
