Overheard at Table 1: Books or Mental Health

"So I stepped back from Twitter, only posting my Fun Facts, and it's really improved my mental health, but it's completely tanked my book sales."

"That sucks.  But are you sure that's the only reason?"

"You know something I don't?"

"Just saying correlation is not always causation."

"Yeah, but interaction and presence on social media is what drives new interested readership.  The more you post, the more you interact with new people, the more people are interested in your book."

"I can see that.  Yeah, that tracks ... but still, I'd rather see you mentally at peace than with a tonne of book sales.  If you aren't emotionally in the right place, no amount of books sold can bring you home safely."



"Number.  Number of books sold.  You said 'amount'."

"So ... back to that mental health ..."
