HOO HAH! JUST BROKE TEN GRAND!
Just got my royalty statement for my book, Crafty Screenwriting.
As of last June (publishing moves at the dopamine-challenged pace of a ground sloth; I just got my report), I've sold 10,355 copies. That's over 2,000 copies in my fourth "season," which means the book is a good backlist book. In other words bookstores are no longer buying it because it's new, they're buying it because they've sold out their copies. I'm happy. These are tiny numbers by TV standards, but there you go, it's a book.
