Or else the terrorists have won.
Seriously, I really do need to make a good showing with this one. I could have stayed with St. Martin’s, putting out a compilation every two years that got absolutely no promotional support and sold respectable but modest numbers. Instead I took a risk on a new publisher, and they’re excited about this one and putting a lot into it — I don’t even want to tell you how optimistic they’re being with the first print run — but if it doesn’t do well, I’m sure that excitement will cool down quickly, and I will find myself with even fewer options than before.
As far as my future book publishing career is concerned, I’ve basically put everything on red 23 and the roulette wheel is spinning.
