Over the past month this exciting-looking graph has been building on my KDP dashboard. It’s somebody using their ‘Kindle Unlimited’ membership to read my e-book version of Medar. They obviously did a big push at the end. Maybe it got really exciting for them? Now they have started reading Tyrelia.
It’s another way of earning royalties, and it’s pretty much the first time this has happened since I started advertising my books on Amazon. I know I only earn a few cents per page, but still, with much anticipation I checked my royalties. Can you guess?
I have earned a whopping (wait for it … drumroll) $3.25! And that’s US dollars. Sigh. Won’t be leaving my day job 🙂
A fantasy fan since being read 'The Hobbit' by her father at the fireside at the age of six, she has been an avid bookworm her entire life. When the idea for her current trilogy popped into her head, there was never any doubt that it would be in the fantasy genre. Unfortunately, real life gets in the way, and writing has to fit around her full-time job at a global engineering consultancy and family life (husband and two young adult children). It took ten years to pen her first book, Medar, which was a finalist for the Tom Fitzgibbon Award in 2015 and was published in 2017. Her second book, Tyrelia was nominated in the Young Adult Fiction category in the 2019 Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Her third book, Golden City, is due out in 2021.
