Another Mammoth Royalty to be Held Over
For Mardi Gras or, more to the point, this was a six-month royalty for the last half of 2016 and one pretty generous as these things go. But — how to say it? — perhaps more than one thing has been disappointing about the nether parts of the past year. As the editor/publisher herself put it (as is my custom, to avoid embarrassment on both sides the actual publisher/book[s] will remain anonymous), [w]e hope it rebounds in 2017, and are redoubling our promotional efforts to that end. Unless you object, we will simply hold your royalty over through this royalty period in the hopes that it grows substantial enough to pay you at the end of the summer. And fair enough, say I. Actually this one would buy a small meal at a discount restaurant, but why not let it slide for now and maybe, by Labor Day, have enough for dessert as well!
Laissez les bon temps rouler, eh?
