The anxious wait is over. The nail-biting Scout campaign, the long months in real-life-is-a-bitch limbo. Today, the book is finally released into the wild. How well will she do? Well, that part is not up to me. Advertising dollars for a starving artist are scarce (read: non-existent), especially with little ones biting at the ankles, baying for food and school fees. When the sequel hits later this year, I will bleed for some exposure, whether it takes a pound of flesh or whatever else necessary. Until then, word of mouth… through my also non-existent social media.
I guess there’s nothing left but to pray. What does one sacrifice at a Jeff Bezo shrine?
