When the writer puts up too many obstacles...

Children of Stone: Voices in Crystal - Mary R. Woldering

As a self-publishing author, you just can't come into a public discussion and start by whining about how mean everyone is, how they're all out to destroy your writing spirit.  Who wants to spend US$24.00 on that?

 

Defensiveness, whining, self-pity (well, I guess self pity is better than none), and petulant sarcasm do not gain readers.
