My get published contest ended yesterday, and I did not get that many submissions. Thankfully two of them are really good, so I will be reading and rereading them to choose a winner. Or maybe I will just publish both, I am not sure yet.
I am less optimistic about my chances of making it big with this business now. I looked at the stats for my website and even though I posted the contest several places and drummed up interest on several websites, I only got 60 even to visit the site, let alone submit a story. When I am asking people to actually spend money on buying a book, I am sure it will be even harder. I am starting to realize that even for modest returns I will still have to work a lot. I guess I knew that going in, it is just hard to lose the dream of big bucks.
