It's been 15 days since I launched pre-orders for my eBook on Rails (https://playbookthirtynine.com) , and so far I've had 14 sales. I've been consistently sharing on Twitter, including pages and snippets, but I don't have a large following.
I guess I just expected more interest. I definitely expected more sales, especially when you look at the popularity of other eBook. I have so many years of experience across multiple apps. I built and sold a business in two years. Surely developers would want to read about my approach and techniques.
But who am I?
I'm just another fish in the ocean.
This project has felt like pushing a rock up a hill. There's a number things that are just out of my control:
What can I do?
Finish the book. Finish the app. Deliver the book and app on time to those who pre-ordered. Complete the project.
Who knows, maybe this will just be a late bloomer.
