Reasons for Unpublishing The Eternal Reflection
To re-edit and re-publish another time as 4 books instead
(Outdated as of Oct 2022: I have released the 2nd Edition of The Eternal Reflection!)
Although my 4 books' reviews were good, few people were buying them and I found the reason: nobody wants to buy a 2000 page book!
So my solution now is simple: break up the volume into 4 independent books.
I have likewise been severely burned out since I am just a single person doing all the drafting, editing, website, marketing, etc. - this has unfortunately burned me out completely and I need to recover.
So now, I will get another beta-reader so I can polish the books more, and per the readers' feedback, improve each book 1 by 1.
I wish to start slow instead, instead of having all 4 books out at once.
This will take probably a lot of time before the 1st book is released again.
A lot of improvements will be made to all 4 books with bonus content to replace those I feel could be made much better.
I also wish to hire a literary agent to seek traditional publishing instead.
I kindly ask you all for your patience and understanding, but this, together with many personal and private issues have caught up to me.
I have not given up on my readers and works. I know I have a target audience, and have, fortunately, based on interviews, found out who they are.
I shall write to this group.
