I think people should know that I’m not being dramatic or something. I took Wicked Witch Boy down because a startling number of people keep buying it, and I know I need to revise it yet again. I don’t want to keep selling something that needs editing, so until I get to it, it’ll stay down.
I wish I hadn’t asked anyone to read it, but I only asked one person so I guess it’s not a big deal. They read it and never cared enough to review it, so I’ll assume they hated it and leave it at that.
The truth is, I may never put the book back up. I don’t know. If I didn’t live under a rock and knew how popular YA was, I probably would have taken my time publishing that book. I had no idea people would actually buy it without me having to do a lick of marketing. Too bad I just don’t write much young adult.
Also, I think the cover is shit and the font needs to be adjusted. So there’s that.
Maybe the sad reality is the book is only selling well because a boy is the lead character. Which is really fucking dumb. If I went back and made Toby a girl, the book would be exactly the same as it is right now. Only . . . the title wouldn’t make sense.
