It appears that some of our books are part of the giant Amazon sale.
Ace backlist: no price drop. Not a cent. $7.99.
I once read this weird article that suggested that the source of our anxiety is the inability to be yourself. The author felt that the psyche of an anxious person is suggesting a certain response, be it running away or punching someone in the face, but the anxious person is forced into a different response by societal pressure or circumstances. While some measure of societal pressure is good – punching people in the face is rarely the correct response in a civilized society – if there is a chronic suppression of the natural urge, it creates tension. Basically, the author decided that if you don’t let people be themselves, it will drive them crazy.
Unfortunately, in my case, that means I am prevented from being a bitch, which is probably my natural state of being. While I have doubts about the article’s scientific basis, I’m rather tired of being polite and professional all the time. I decided to strive for more… natural responses. I have written out a very satisfying response to this lack of market sensitivity, complete with percentages, statistics, and other fun things. Unfortunately my husband asked me not to post it.
See, all of you think I am the voice of reason in this relationship. That’s not always true. Anyway, more to come on Monday in regard to sales.
