Another Royalty Statement
I got a royalty statement for the year's sales of my second book, Ethnic Cleansing in the USSR, 1937-1949 today. It is doing slightly better than my first book which sold one copy in the last six months covered by the latest royalty statement. My second book has sold six copies in the US and Canada and three abroad in the last year. Foreign sales generate very little money. The three foreign copies earned me $5.28 versus the $33.77 for six domestic sales. The statement shows that the publisher owes me $39.05. However, since they only write checks for amounts of $75.00 and more I will see no actual money from them this year. Maybe next year I will sell another nine books and reach past the $75.00 threshold. I would encourage people to buy my book, but it is cheaper and faster for everybody to just send me the money directly.
