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, 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. Congratulations Roger, lovely news. Thanks for your Christmas wishes and I wish the same for you.

    1. Now I can't wait to find out what Amazon US has for me.The word humbug has been stricken from my vocabulary.

  2. It's nice to receive something, isn't it? I love the self-portrait. It looks just like you. Wishing you and yours the happiest of Christmas times.

  3. Very kind but I don't have that many teeth unfortunately. Even half that many. All the best greetings to you and yours for the holiday.
