Royalty Check and Me!!!

My First Royalty Check

I received my first royalty check in the mail the other day. It felt good. It felt great. It felt spectacular. Stop!!! Wait a minute. I meant to say that I felt Robbed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me just set the record straight, I did not write my book for any monetary gain. I wrote it because I love to write. But, because I did write it and I did put my heart into the book hence the title HeartFelt: A Book of Poems, I must say I was surprised. I was surprised that the check was very little. VERY LITTLE!!!!

Besides the amount of the check, I am happy, excited, thrilled and blessed. Blessed beyond measure that I can actually say I received my first royalty check. But, I just wanted to let you guys know how I felt. I just wanted to share some of my emotions.

Yes I am a little emotional...actually very emotional....very emotional am I!

My first royalty check opened up my eyes. It allowed me to see that I am a broke author trying to make it to the door steps of some high time, professional and brillant publishing manager.

Yes I am Motivated...actually very motivated....very motivated am I!

I am a Motivated self-published author who won't stop until I get a publishing deal from a major publishing company!!!!

I am motivated!!!! Let's get it!!!
