Three Hoodies Save the World

Constant moaning and whinging about everything

Finally, royalties

After a more observant member than I of that excellent blogging site Koobug further reinforced what Donna of Believe In Yourself has been saying for weeks I altered my payment method on Amazon.

And now it’s finally happened, after thirty years of writing, although only three since I first published to Amazon: I have received a payment.

It’s not much and certainly not enough for the new Porsche, or to tell the boss what to do with his job, even if I wanted to. And I don’t know yet of how much I’ll be getting from the US where the majority of my sales have been achieved.

I love writing and always will it, yet even if I do ever write a best seller and make a zillion pounds, nothing will ever beat the sweet beauty of this moment.

For all those in blog land, and indeed everywhere else, I hope your Christmas is wonderful and all your dreams come true.

  1. I got my first one today, too. Now if only they’d hurry up with the rest of it! 🙂

    For me, it was a matter of them changing their tactics that finally resulted in me getting paid. Now that there’s no threshold to clear, it would be nice to get the rest of it. I’ll probably never sell enough copies of Tuesday Daydreams to really make anything from it, but it’s fun all the same, especially since I initially had it made up as a gift for someone (which is one reason why I haven’t done much for marketing and why my only sales came in 2012;, the other of course being my profound lack of confidence in my poetic abilities).

  2. Congrats!! I also got paid, it’s unfortunately not going to make much of a dent in my Christmas credit card bill, but a good feeling all the same!!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours 😀
