Just in case it would be of interest to others.   (I even include sales figures!)

Here are the links.

and

I wonder if there is any perceptible erosion in my authorial innocence?

Thanks, TO. Very interesting to read about your journey.

I think the idea of what we're doing as "hobby" is right on, for me. Like any other hobby, I'd be willing to be in the red in time and money to achieve the result I'm after.

Meanwhile, I'm impressed with and envious of anyone who has written a full book, no less three. Cheers for year 3!

I appreciate you taking the time to write this up! I'm always pleased to see more data points, especially in regards to Amazon and its impressive but questionable policies with exclusives.
