I am doing a happy dance right now because I received an email from Amazon with great news: my books have amassed enough sales so that I have reached the required minimum $10 sales mark to get paid!
I have reached the minimum. I’ll take it and continue with my happy dance.
Being an e-book author, you are pretty much your own team for the most part. Marketing, editing, cover design, etc are fields you often have to take on yourself in addition to, oh yeah, writing the books. So when you hear that you are making it, you are overjoyed.
It’s been a slow struggle. I will be the first to admit that my sales are not phenomenal or that my books are not hotcakes flying off the e-book shelves. But they’re great books I worked hard on and worth a read.
Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible and continues to make this possible. I’m talking about you, Reader. A writer would be nothing without readers, and I thank you.
And resuming happy dance.
