Mine is STAGGERINGLY tiny. I can't understand it, just one of my books, out last year and used extensively in schools has sold 8,000 copies... it makes NO sense.
That's interesting, DB, and since I have stories in anthologies it prompted me to have a look at the ALCS website. You can do a royalty search to see if anything has already been collected for particular books so I searched our One Word Anthology and various other anthologies I have stories in - all of them came up blank, so I guess there's no point in joining.
I always thought the latter, but then how does the royalty search work? Hmmm.Maybe they are too old to come up. Magazine stuff has to be registered within 3 years of publication - is book stuff the same?There was an historic payment for some old magazine stuff this Sept DB - if you check your statement it might have been for that rather than the books. My payment this year was for that, with nothing for books, and I don't usually get a Sept one.
The one thing we do know is that it's all very unclear and seemingly random!

TBH, DeneBebbo, if you keep feeding your ALCS account you won't have a break from receiving payments moving forward and it is, as Wordy says, a welcome bonus.
