It's hard to get someone to buy your work especially when you are UNKNOWN. I know that financially this hits me in the wallet, but if enough people see my art and writings, I can build an audience and become known to my readers. I'm not saying I'll never charge people. Some of my books are online at Amazon.com. I expect something. If you are reading books in my library, 4Leaf Clover, I hope you can return the favor by buying some of my works. Basically writing is a CATCH22. You have to be known to sell books but how do you sell books if you are unknown.
