An awesome thing just happened and I thought I’d share. I got an e-mail letting me know that the first royalties for the sale of my book were being deposited into my account! Now, obviously I knew that I’d sold some books, there are reports that generate that information for you on a regular basis. But here was the proof! The actual amount is small, my book has only been out a short time and it hasn’t gained much attention, yet. I have to say that even though it’s not much, it’s still the sweetest money I’ve ever earned!
So for all of you writing your first book, struggling with the editing, agonizing over the cover design, take heart. It will be so worth the effort when it’s done and you earn your first dollar (or pound, or Euro, etc) Now I’m going to open myself a beer! And yes, I know it’s only 8:30 in the morning!
