It's just time. The writing thing was fun and I sold a few thousand copies of these stories, but who am I kidding? To be a success at this, one has to know people... those people have to know people. It's a popularity contest much like anything else. I'm not popular, never have been.
So with that, I'll pull my work off the web. Should be gone from Smashwords and Createspace this evening. The other sites who get my books through these two distributors will take a bit longer. Gruesome reminders of my failed attempt.
On to the next project folks. Nice of you to stop by.
