It's that time of year--the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining (in between snow storms) and tax day has passed. What could be a more perfect time to report author-earnings?
In the past I have done this according to payment schedules (go HERE and HERE to read previous blogs on this topic), and then realized it would make a lot more sense to report an entire year's worth of royalties, payments, or advances. Since publishers have all kinds of payment schedules, this will help equalize the numbers. The year to report on is 2008.
So, here's what you do. Post to this blog ANONYMOUSLY and tell us the following information:
Type of publication: (traditional or self-published)
# of books you were paid on: (how many books are still selling)
Market: (LDS, National, Christian--you can be more specific if you want to such as National YA, National inspirational--up to you)
Total monies earned:
Type of payment: (how much royalty, how much advance, sell of rights, purchases etc. did you earn in 2008)
You're welcome to include any other comments as well, and feel free to click on the box that will send you any other postings to this blog so you can follow the responses without having to come back here.
Thanks for playing!
