    But six months later, they've only sold a grand total of 12,000 books. And their book has already fallen into the realm of obscurity, because no one cares about it anymore. Their bestseller was a flash in the pan.

      I do require it be EASY to use, but also want it to look professional. I've been researching and seem to go in circles. Do you have a suggestion?
