First Mammoth Year-End Royalty Reported

Godzilla, move over!  It’s that time of year again when the e-mailbox groans under the metaphorical weight of the money reported by various publishers due for the year’s (or at least half’s or quarter’s) sales.  And the first has appeared in this morning’s wee hours, to be paid through Paypal by New Year’s Eve.  As has has been my practice in previous years, I do not report actual publishers’ names — or amounts — in order to avoid mutual embarrassment, but for this first report let us simply say it’s good that the cost of a stamp doesn’t have to be deducted in order to send me an actual check.

But every bit adds up, yes?


  1. Indeed, it is not going to fund your annual holiday party, that royalty! Wishing you and Wednesday and all your faithful fans an especially lovely Christmas!

    • Yes, thank you, and you and Bruce and family too! (In fairness, also, it’s actually just a third quarter royalty, the final quarter with its “Christmas surge” not to be reported till March — gives extra time to count all those pennies!)
