Thanks for that - makes interesting reading.

I'm always interested in what drives people though. If I thought I had it in me to put out a great novel, I wouldn't be doing it to become rich. I'd do it because getting it out there was the reward in the first place.

Easy for me to say as I probably don't have a great novel in me and I haven't sweat blood trying to put one together. However, I really like the idea of my work going out into the world and being read by people.

I have web published some depressing poetry in the past, though.

Caleb
