Anatomy of a Royalty Statement

Popular author Lynn Viehl has posted her royalty statement from Penguin on her blog here. Agent Jenny Rappaport posted a companion blog, explaining Lynn's royalty statement here.

I strongly encourage all writers to read both posts.

Thanks to Nathan Bransford for the heads up.

How brave of her and very thoughtful of her. I've heard of writers earning peanuts, but it's a good eye-opener to see the numbers broken down, especially from a best selling author. It hits home more than ever, that it's naive to assume you'll amass a huge fortune in this business!
