No details on West of Here?

The number that surprised me the most was the royalties for Lulu. Be curious what the actual rate was, but bully for him.

These are actually high amounts compared to what many novelists make.

Just finished Too Good To Be True by Ben Anastas, and novelist seems like a rough existence.

Good god. Lulu was a great book and he needs to be paid more. Amortize all that money out over time and calculate the hourly wage. I bet it just over minimum wage.

This is why when people complain that dreck like "50 Shades of Grey" make millions I tell them to shut their pie holes. At least SOMEBODY is making money from writing.
