MY ROYALTIES ARRIVED!

Every once in a while — which is to say very, very rarely — I get an automatic deposit to my bank account from Amazon. Someone, somewhere bought my book. So imagine my excitement when I got a notice from my bank that a direct deposit had been made to my account. Yes, it happened again. Someone bought my book. Someone in Japan.

Japan?

Today, I got the official notification. Are you ready?

Hi, MARILYN, money was deposited into your account
Amount: $0.13

I’m not sure where to spend all the money, but I’m sure I’ll think of something!

    • Every time I get a royalty deposit (they have occationally actually been a few dollars!) I remember why I didnt bother to write another book. If it isn’t going to make at least a modest amount money, it’s not worth a year of work.
