Hi,

Just wondering if there's a site out there that helps explain how to decipher a royalty statement from a publisher after a book has been published? I've just received a couple of statements and they read like Greek mathematics to me. I'd really like to figure out how to understand them.

Thanks so much!

Ask your publisher what each bit means.

Or ask your agent.


If there's a check attached, that's all I really look at.

I've been getting royalty statements since '91 and STILL can't figure them out!
