The Writing Life

Oh no. I have become obsessed with the Amazon page for Mr. Penumbra. What’s that? Another review?? Wait, I was at #5 on the short stories list — how’d I fall down to #7??

I can only imagine how addictive (and ridiculous) this is for people with real books, and real sales. It’s simultaneously an economic metric and a proxy for your self-esteem. Dangerous.

For the record: 130 Kindle copies sold to date. And about a hundred times that many web views… which feels about right.
