With the new Amazon policy of dropping the minimum limit to get funds, and paying me every two months; I received two payments to end the year.
My editor, Julia, keeps telling me not to be so negative, but when all I see is less than $2 a month for endless hours of work, I feel justified. Especially when people writing fanfiction can get ten times more in a month than I did this year.
With the last four months pay, I can afford a cup of coffee.
Here's to next year and the hope that the contest in Toronto brings the start of a new awareness for my stories.
