KICKASS ANTHOLOGY – Guess how much we raised in December 2014?

Kickass cover 3

Click here to find out more about the all-volunteer Kickass Anthology fundraiser effort for Eric Arvin’s medical recovery! If you’re new to my blog, click on the buy link below and look at the free read sample on Amazon. We are all very proud of our illustrated anthology, where all work was donated by fellow artists and all proceeds go to Eric so he can stop being paralyzed and can come out and play again.

December royalties:

Paperbacks – $202.33. This amount is now in the mail to Eric and his family, and consists of royalties from the US ($188.63) and the UK ($13.70). CreateSpace pays 30 days after the end of the month.

E-books – $1,294.73. Still waiting for this amount. It consists of royalties from the US ($1,145.27), UK ($96.50), Europe ($50.50) and Japan ($2.46). KDP pays 60 days after the end of the month – they must have changed their terms since the last time I looked. I’ll send this amount as soon as I receive it.

Total December 2014 royalties: $1,497.06

Not bad, people! All of you who contributed, thank you again for your stories, illustrations, editorial services, technical expertise, and the organization of guest blog posts! And those of you who were kind enough to buy a copy, please know that this effort would’ve been impossible without your interest and generosity. Writers would have no purpose without readers, for writers are storytellers and we yearn to share our creations with the rest of the world.

Now, I need your help again.  All of you who’ve bought and read this book, please leave a review on Amazon and GoodReads. We haven’t done that, and this will help spread the word. Also, please let your friends know that both e-book and paperback versions will be on a 25% off for one week, until February 21st.

      Yeah I’m jazzed! According to someone, a book in this genre can earn 3-5 grand in royalties (That would be 40% publisher royalties) over a 5-year contract period. We can do that. Of course we don’t have the expenses a bigger publisher has, because everyone volunteered their services. We also don’t have the same reach. Still, though, I think we’re doing okay 🙂
