Today I received my very first cheque from Amazon.com. My book sales over the past three years have finally accumulated to the point where Amazon.com has thought it worth it to send me my royalties.
If I sound bitter… I’m really not. I am deeply grateful to Amazon for making it possible to self-publish. People have read my books! Awesome! And now that I have a cheque physically in my hand, there’s proof undeniable that I am an author!
The flip side of this being that quite clearly I’m not selling all that many, only a handful each month. Perhaps my social media presence needs to be higher? I should tweet more often about my brilliance:
I am a published author!
