Update from Elizabeth, Anne, and Lynn.
3Q Royalty summary statements are in the folders at Box.com. The reports with additional details will continue to upload overnight. The reports will include:
- Summary – total sales reported by vendor
- By Edition – total sales reported by format of title (ebook, audio, paperback)
- Order Detail – details of sales based on month, vendor, and title
The system is set to distribute partial payments by splitting them evenly across titles. That doesn’t always work when there are advances. We individually assigned payments on reports with advances, but are happy to answer any questions about how 2Q payments were applied.
Remaining 2Q & 3Q Payments
Payments will be sent at the end of this week and the end of next week. 3Q payments won’t be sent until 2Q payments are complete.
All questions about reports and payments should be emailed to Elizabeth.
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.
