Royalty statement can be a killer!
2/28/2011 8:12:07 AM
Hi ya buds, How goes things with you this Monday morning? I hope you had lots of fun over the wekend and got plenty of rest.
My weekend was going great until I was handed an email regrding my royalty statement. When I read it I sat dwon and cried. Not to mention my blood pressure going off the charts. I spent most of Sunday in bed feeling sorry for myself. Then I thought, Hey Fern, how many people can say that they had a book published and it is on the web (350). That is a great accomplishment. I just wish that there was a way for Authors like myself without the services of a good PR man could track sales of their books.
This is one of the reasons I went with Amazon Kindle for "Continuum Dust Carried on the Wind" book 2 Kindle edition. 1. The price is right and 2. whenever a sale of your book, you know within a short period of time that it will show up on your record page. What a great morale builder.
Here is an expert from my book. Hope you like it.
Over and over it whirled and a few moments later the colorful vendors cart dropped far away into the sea where there a big wave pulled it upward to a foaming crest then slamming it down into the water, where it sank as more waves washed over it. Pluto watched unable to do anything but run for his life.
Time for the word game. Apostrophic---The direct address of an absent of imaginary person.
Well that is all for today. Have a great one. Hug your kids, kiss your husband and don't forget your pet. Now it is time for me to get bak to my writing before my eyes blur and my back breaks. Fern
