Transcendence reading, smiling Chris 2010
Just got my royalty statement and learned that Transcendence has earned out. Hooray! Thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy. If you haven't, well, why not take a trip to your favorite bookstore ;-)

Woohoo!
Chris

Yup! The advance is a payment against royalties, plus publishing expenses, distribution, advertisement and promotions, and other costs. Once enough books have sold to pay for expenses, one starts to see the fruits of one's labor!
