October 15 Update

October 15, 2019 Author Updates

October 15, 2019
Update from Elizabeth, Anne, and Lynn.

Hi there. Short update tonight.

Payments have been issued from the deposit on Oct. 10th. Monday, October 14th was a bank holiday in the US, so some payments are still processing. Authors can sign in to their Tipalti account to see the payment, payment amount, and status.

Authors with a higher amount due have been paid a percentage based on their royalties as a percentage of the whole. Authors with royalties under $200 are being paid in full as funds become available. 

Any questions about payments or statements should be sent directly to Elizabeth.

3Q Royalty statements will be saved to Box accounts starting on Monday, October 21. They will be available in three formats:

  1. Summary – total sales reported by vendor
  2. By Edition – total sales reported by format of title (ebook, audio, paperback)
  3. Order Detail – details of sales based on month, vendor, and title

All 2Q payments will be completed before 3Q payments are sent. Payments will continue to be sent chronologically.

We are here and willing to discuss the current situation as well as future plans with authors. Our email addresses are below. Until this situation has been completely resolved, we will issue an update every Tuesday.

We have started an archive of updates for authors having trouble receiving the emails. We will also share questions from authors and readers we feel would be helpful. You can even put your address in to receive emails when it updates.


Written communication can never take the place of face to face, but Elizabeth happily uses Skype and will schedule a chat with anyone who wishes to talk with her. Her ID on Skype is dsp_elizabeth. Connect with her by email to schedule a chat.

Don’t want to be face to face? Use the ASK QUESTION option on the update website. Remember if you ask a question anonymously, we can’t respond directly.

For those who attended the workshop if you asked a question, please click the ASK QUESTION link and ask the same question so others can see the answer.
