First royalties check for Small Town News arrives
Undeniably, I will use any peg possible to promote my novel "Small Town News," and that includes the arrival Friday of my first royalties check. Royalties are notoriously slow in getting to authors so I am just now receiving money from the first couple of weeks the book was out. I received more money from my signings in Joplin, Lamar, and Neosho, but it was still an indescribable feeling to see a check from IUniverse with my name on it. (Sales pitch coming)
And, of course, "Small Town News" is still on sale locally at Hastings and the Changing Hands Book Shop in Joplin, over the Internet from Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, Hastings, Books-a-Million, IUniverse's website or many other outlets, or you can buy it directly from the author.
Considering the competition between area news outlets for news these days and the battling viewpoints and recent questions on journalistic ethics, the ideas broached in "Small Town News," are as timely as ever. (End of advertisement)
