I am not well. Emotionally, I feel like a wreck, probably due to a confluence of many things: hormones (I want to be rid of my uterus), failure of selling my books and depression.

Happier news to pierce through this funk: Amazon is finally paying me.

Sadder news: Buying back the remainder might just be a mistake on my part. Hefty sum. People tell me that blame should also be placed on the publisher, but... I don't know. Singapore just isn't ripe for a real science fiction renaissance as people still skew towards foreign authors or local authors who make it big.

Bought the remainder.

And it's...Autumnal Equinox/Mabon.

Apt.

Painful, but necessary.

Yes, I made the decision to buy the remainder of the Rider and Speaker books as they are not selling. Sales have been bad. The books have not been moving just as quickly as I'd though. Not sure whether it's due to marketing or that Singapore's indeed a small market - but I think it's time to take them off the shelves.
They have languished long enough. :/

That the remainder cost approx. 800 SGD... well, will be a strain on my pockets, but I pray the pain is worth it.

EDIT: If you can't help, just say so. Don't have to tell me "I am sorry" or "At least you have some sales, but sadly most don't have".

EDIT 2: I was receiving responses like the ones seen above.
