I have a freaky thing happening, and while I understand that from your perspective, the more I write the more people know about me, it is not that direct.
It is not related to publishing. I publish this and some other stuff, but most of my writing is not yet published.
I’m working towards writing a book about recovery from narcissism and boundaries. They overlap significantly. None of it is in the public domain yet.
So what is happening? There is a direct positive correlation between me writing and how many books I sell. Those are the ones already available, not the one I’m writing.
I hardly wrote in September and sold almost no books. Near the end of the month, I woke at four a.m. once and wrote for three hours before work. Three books were sold by noon.
Similar examples appear in proportion to how much I write, or not. Now it is obvious, I’m not selling millions of books. Hundreds are sold yearly. I’ve only ever advertised on my site and of course, I’m listed on Amazon.
So, I decided to write, right after I got off of the treadmill, I’m on day 103 of an exercise streak. And yes, another book sold.
Admitting something like this publicly would not have been possible when I thought it might interfere with my political career.
