That Sinking Feeling or Is It Just Betrayal?
Have you ever had the feeling that your being betrayed? Well, after checking in at my office, I discover that my stats and book sales seems to be pretty much none existent.
Why, I ask myself? When I know for sure I have sold many books to date yet my account just doesn’t add up.
So where is the rest of my money? I may be a Self Publishing Indie Author but that doesn’t mean I’m blind to what may or may not be going on.
Seems there are other Authors out there with the same problem, so how do we fix this? Or rather how do we better manage our sales rather than taking Create-space, Amazon and Barnes and Nobel at their word?
Are these people forgetting that we have Tax’s to pay? Or am I mistaken and it’s just a blip at their end?
Well time will tell but one thing is for sure, if we authors are spending hours writing a good story or maybe not in some people’s views then we deserve to be paid in FULL for our work.
I certainly don’t intend on waiting around for my money and I’m pretty sure others aren’t either.
Sadly this is the problem with self publishing, we do it because a traditional publisher requires quite a large percentage of the takings, not to mention so many strict rules and regulations.
I think it’s time I put my investigators hat back on, watch this space.
