So CreateSpace (Amazon’s company that published my novel) has a $100 threshold on royalties. Once you’ve hit that, they send you a check.
After two years and three months… my little baby finally hit that threshold.
And, dang, do I feel accomplished.
Let’s ignore the fact that it took that long, the fact that it’s “only” $100, and the fact that it’s “just” a self-published novel. Because, dang it, I need something to be proud of.
(I’m finishing college less than a month and I’ll celebrate that, too.)
But here’s my dilemma – I have no idea what to spend it on!
I want to be able to look back – when I’m a famous author giving interviews alongside other famous authors – and be able to proudly say what I spent my very first royalty check on. But I have no earthly clue what that should be!
Current ideas are: a trip somewhere (hello, Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway), a new laptop charger cord + battery (necessities, plus that’s writing-related, right?), or invest it/put it in savings for later. The first is exciting but expensive, and the last two are boring but necessary. 😄
HELP A SISTA OUT.
(Also, I finally got on The Book of Faces. Friend me!)
