Time for a little honesty, Rik?

The truth is, I don't understand why people have no interest in buying my book, The Gods in the Jungle, either as hardcopy or eBook.

Everything I do to promote the book results in ... nothing. Quirky Facebook app to promote the book - ignored. Tweets and blogposts - unread, I assume. In the runup to crimbotide I offered the book as a free download over at Smashwords, resulting in one additional full download.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I do have some suspicions:

1. The book is crap, but nobody has the bollocks to tell me I've written an unreadable book;

2. My networking and promotional skills are abysmal;

3. Some bastard has placed an obscurity curse on me; or (my favourite)

4. All of the above.

I know, I know. Move on to something different, Rik. And stop moaning: it ain't making me look my prettiest.
