Honestly - Some of those e-books are short stories that my mother I. C. Talbot wrote and I edited and published. She left me a collection of over 300 short stories. We were working on them when she passed, and I clean up and publish one or two a year.
I’d LOVE to take credit for being a Big Fish, but it’s only in the last two years I’ve gotten any $ales at all. I got a tiny bit of traction last year and after publishing 3 short stories this year, one has taken of regionally, and has sold 20 paperbacks!
The BEST part is that I’ve got a lot of cheap short stories for them to read, so reads and sales have finally risen to more than $5 a month.
It’s been a slog, I’m hanging in there like a hair in a biscuit and am hoping for a good winter season.
