Moments ago I realized there is a feature on
Amazon that gives authors sales info. Examining it, I learned that since
September 2010, all three of my books put together have sold six copies
Fantasies of the Politically Dispossessed: 3 copies. Families Are
Formed Through Copulation: 2 copies. Unrehearsed Beauty: 1 copy.
know my books have sold more in bookstores. And the statistics don't include any sales from
Canada or Europe. So it doesn't really mean much in terms of what the books
did overall. Just a strange thing to see on a screen in front of me.
I believe this experience is a perfect illustration of the common expression ignorance is bliss.
