What am I, crazy?!

Well, I wanted to take back control of my work. For a year I felt like a passenger, feasting upon perodic bursts of good news, dieing every time I got bad news. So I've uploaded it to Amazon and Smashwords - and I feel really good about it. I feel as if I'm actually doing something now.

But you need to tell me - Am I crazy?
