Thirty-one dollars and seventy-two cents. It doesn't sound like a whole lot, but that's the first quarter's royalties for a book that was only available for sale for one month of the quarter in question, and that hasn't had much time to earn back the publisher's expenses from producing it. If I had sold a novel to a major print publisher, even a relatively successful novel, many quarters might have gone by before any royalties arrived. In its proper context, this number is excellent news.
Someday I might make enough from my fiction to support my Starbucks habit. A girl's gotta have a dream.
