Well, like the title of this blog post says, this is your final chance to buy anything from my online store. I’ll be shutting it down at midnight for good. This means all my deals for combos for books and artwork will be gone as well. Thank you to everyone who has used this service provided to me by Square. In the end, it just wasn’t a profitable way for me to get my books to my readers. I’ll let Amazon do the work now, and simply focus on my writing. It needs all of my attention.
When I first started doing the writing thing, I jumped at every opportunity to get my name and brand out there. While I was doing this, I let the quality of my prose slip a little bit as I tried to find my audience. Now, after nearly seven years of self-publishing and blogging, I see now where my energies should be applied, while at the same time honoring the stuff I’ve done before. I’m still going to self-publish the rest of The Greenland Diaries, and the sequels to Beware the Ills, but all other projects will be funneled into a traditional publishing setting. This is another reason why I’m shutting own this online store. I don’t have the time or energy available to make it profitable and updated.
So, once more, thank you to everyone who has stuck it out with me and supported this blog. I’m still going to update it, so this isn’t really a goodbye, just a step in a different direction. I’ll still be selling my books at conventions and other places, just not online anymore through a Square store. Thank you everyone. Your support means the world.
