Cue the AC/DC
More good news for Old Man’s War: it’s in the black. I received my latest royalty statement from Tor today, and in it came glad tidings in the guise of a royalty check. Whoo-hoo! I’m all earned out!
The nice wrinkle in this is that when I signed the two-book deal with Tor that included OMW, it specified that I would start getting royalties after the advances on both books in the deal had been earned out. The second book in that deal is The Android’s Dream, which comes out in October. So — if I’m remembering this correctly — this means Android is already in the black, which takes some of the pressure off. It also means I get royalties from the first copy sold. So, you know, buy lots. Athena needs a college education.
In all seriousness, if you bought a copy of OMW, thank you very much. Books don’t always earn out their advances. I’m really happy this one did. I owe you.
