When I got my first royalty check from Amazon, I went to my boss at the bar and was like, “Mike, I quit, dude,” and he was like why, and I was like “Look at this check, man,” and he said, “I’d quit too.”
This is what I’m doing now. My three stories that are out have now sold in excess of 93,000 copies, and I have another Kindle Single that I’m working on for later this year, and hopefully working on a book.
Don’t you love knowing how much money people make? This is actually really admirable that the Kindle Singles folks are encouraging writers to go public about sales and earnings; your average publishing house would flip out. It is of course the best possible advertisement for themselves.
