First story I ever got the courage to let someone else read it… they called me a retard. They said it was so bad that I should give up writing.

First book I ever self-published: sold two e-book and two paperback copies, received two reviews, and that was it. I had it unpublished.

My second try with self-publishing? Sold 3 e-copies of a short story in the first month, earning $1.05 before taxes.

First try at blogging? Quit after three days.
