I got my first annual statement for sales of my book, Empire and the Sun, a couple days ago.
I can’t decipher it to save my life. So far as I can tell, Stanford Press has sold a negative number of hard cover copies, which I suspect can’t be right.
But the upshot is that my sales for the year seem to be roughly those that Tom Clancy can expect at the airport bookstore in Rekjavik in a day.
A great incentive for the next monograph!
