Well, I just received my 2nd quarterly report on my poetry e-book and got a big 0 in sales. Not good... Sure was disappointing.

Now you will be able to buy that new outfit you've had your eye on.

Oh, thx much,CW, but though I got the royalty statement, there were 0 royalty payments showing, so that means no dollars! durn it...

07-24-2008, 04:30 AM
I'm bummed out for you Susie.... strength and good karma to you!

Where do I buy? My mom loves poetry. I cannot write it at all. Well, I do sassy ditties, but my mom is a tad too straight laced and mild mannered to read/hear my sassies. The old man loves to hear them around the campfire, though.

I am looking for gift ideas for my wonderful mom and would pick up a copy. Let me know where to go. Make it really, really easy for me (link or title and site to buy - pretty pleasie, lemon squeezie :tongue). The amount of salt I consumed today has my brain shriveled like beef jerky. I cannot manage the simplest of tasks with my dried up pea sized brain. I think it is gonna fall out my ear if I do not drink something soon. A vodka should go nicely. And no, NOT chocolate vodka.

Let me know. I have to get something and well, you may be doing me a bigger favor than I you. Seeings how I will get the book before you get your next royalty statment.

Many thx, Christine. I sent you the link. Hope your mom will love it. You wrote a very cute poem! Hey, chocolate vodka sounds yummy! :)

07-24-2008, 05:50 AM

*destroys pub for not paying Susie any royalties*

Well, I just received my 2nd quarterly report on my poetry e-book and got a big 0 in sales. Not good... Sure was disappointing.

Count yourself lucky that you actually got a statement. I've been having problems getting both statement and royalties from mine for over a year now.

Take heart, things can only get better and hopefully you will get that new dress and go to the ball.

07-24-2008, 05:31 PM
Sweet Susie, do not depair. You will do fine...I know you will. You have to because you are too wonderful to not have wonderful things happen in your life.

Enjoy the good that has already come and be optimistic about the good that is going to come, K?!

Love, hugs and a big fat Hersey's Kiss for you.

07-24-2008, 06:44 PM
Thx much, guys. Sure hope you see your statement & payments very soon, Jill. PS For me, it's not a question of extras, it helps with the necessities.

LOL Haggis on the icon.

Oh Susie! I'm so sorry! *hugs* I didn't know you had an ebook of poetry, but I think I'm going to go check it out now, and I may just buy a copy! I may not, yet, though because I'm pretty short on cash, but I'm going to! Promise!

*edit* Okay I just checked it out, and I'm going to buy a copy on Tuesday when I get paid. No, it's not that expensive, but you have no idea how tight things are right now. But I'm absolutely thrilled to check it out! I love poetry, especially love poetry, and I was literally just talking to someone about how I wanted to buy more poetry. I'm sorry I didn't check it out before!

07-26-2008, 08:53 AM
Thanks so much, Thomma & Alpha. Your so kind posts means the most to me. If you do buy it, Alpha, sure hope you'll love it. Much appreciation!
