Well, just got my royalty statement for Student Bodies, and had an unpleasant surprise. It turns out that some of the books for which I received royalties have been returned to the press from the bookstores that ordered them. So, my royalty statement is now in the negative. Fortunately, I don’t have to return the money the royalties they paid me. Still it is depressing that I’ve really only sold 296 copies in a year. So much for my hope that this would get adopted for courses in history of medicine and/or by college and university libraries.
