>Royalties

>You know, I was very amused by something in this post by The Rejecter:

It was a high amount for author royalties, too, something over a thousand dollars (which, by the way, the majority of authors will not see in a year).

So many of the people in the comments were talking about how little money that is. I think this is one thing being very poor has taught me; that’s a whole lot more money than many people think it is. I hear of “small” advances being only a couple of thousand.

Darlin, when you’re living below the federal poverty line? That’s not a small amount of money. It’s all about perspective. 🙂
