No sales. The last acceptance was on the 4th and that was free.
Aye, I know. Oft have I walked these desolate roads, with naught but the chill winds of The Realty of Low Profile to accompany me. Ah, who cans’t I blame but myself for this fate?
Maybe it’s time you did the unthinkable and sent it off to an agent or publisher? Just saying. Y’know?
Nay, nay and thrice NAY! For they would not understand the many nuances and sub-text and would pour ignorant scorn upon the work
It would seem to me your approaches are either very plebeian or shockingly drenched in self-indulgence. I would suggest a Classical Theme be given to this venture. Underscore the Tragedy of the entire enterprise, in viewing, quite frankly the folly of the whole enterprise the audience would be curious as to the nature of this work and thus one…or …two may be inclined to purchase a copy. The obvious choice would be the Greek playwrights such as Sophocles…..
He’s gotta point ya’ know. I got just the set-up for you. First I give you the Greek Tragedy Chorus.
Oh woe. Oh woe. The sales are slow.
Oh woe. Oh woe. Why, we do not know.
Oh woe. Oh woe. Ashes we doth throw.
Oh woe. Oh woe. Oh woe.
Then the Maid of Tragedy Electra:
My resolve is not new, but long since fixed.
Don’t you just love that girl and her cool quotes
Tragic. Yet heroic.
The fellow is very stoic
Let us hope he does not get choleric
I think we’ll just leave it to Vox Populi
Wrong civilisation dear boy
An’t those dames sweet…Hoch-cha-cha
Just buy the blessed thing will you and make this all stop.
