It was the royalty from the ebook I bought myself to make sure it worked! Ho-hum. Needless to say, the kids were not impressed.

That's an impressive start for a first novel - any strategies to share?

Ummm, seriously? Your expectations must need raising. LoL :)

Most debut novels don't sell more than to friends and family - and then they sit on the long tail for a long time. I can't find the link now, but it's what happens.

Or am I misreading the number? $87?

Three dollars, eighty seven. The royalty on one eBook, which I bought myself to test the system. There I was wallowing in self pity, and this conversation has cheered me up no end. I have no idea how people find books on the Smashwords site unless they already know what/who they are looking for. I certainly could never find my own book unless I went through the authors dashboard.
