A pack of gum? A cup of coffee? A lottery ticket? You can’t even get a Starbucks for that much. To me, it’s affirmation. Someone purchased my ebook because they thought it would be worth at least that much in entertainment. It’s positive reinforcement to keep writing. Even if it weren’t given a 5 star review, someone read it. Hopefully read it all. Either way, they helped me- encouraged me to write more or to write better. Loved it or hated it, I have to thank anyone that has read my work.
