An unshared smile is a wasted smile
I woke up this morning and I had lost my smile and it wasn’t my fault and I looked everywhere and it was gone. Then I met a workman and a king and the best salesman in the world and a clown and no-one wanted to give me theirs. At school, I asked Miss to give me hers, but she gave us a pop quiz instead, and then no-one was smiling and…

A Call to Arms: Send me your Huddled Numbers
Figuring out where to advertise your book is worse than standing in a betting shop, five minutes before a race. You have money in your pocket, but a limited amount of time in which to select a guaranteed winner, and the odds are not in your favor. So, I decided to do something about it, by posting my ad results online.
But I need more information. If you wish to help me, please send me your precious data. Where did you advertise, how much did it cost you and how many books did you sell as a result?
I will use this data to inform you of the best ways to invest your precious, limited advertising budgets. Also, I promise to share my own sales and ad results with you. With your help, we can reach thousands more – just share, reblog and share some more. Let’s help each other navigate these treacherous waters and make sure we don’t spend another dime in vain!
Find out why this survey is the best thing to you since sliced bread (what, you want us to go back to a barbaric world where we have to tear the bread apart ourselves with primitive tools?)
Avid reader. Web developer. Architect by training, holder of a PhD in Digital Architecture from the University of Edinburgh. Most importantly, author.
I live in Athens, Greece, at a forest’s edge, with my wife, Electra and our four-legged children: a dog and two very silly cats, one of whom is always purring on my lap. So, please excuse any typos in my blog posts: typing with one hand can be hard. Mercifully, all my books are professionally edited.
When not reading or writing, you will find me working away at Istomedia, my web development company.
If you like what you see here, why not say ‘hi’ on Twitter, Google+, Goodreads or Facebook as well? I always follow back! And if you leave a comment, I’ll send you an exclusive short story as a ‘thank-you’! :)
