Nate! I have a present for you, I won't try stepping on you! HOOORAY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Nathan.
Happy Birthday.By the way, do you make as much from the books when they sell them cheap as when they are full price? I bought five copies of Rapunzel at the $6 price. For Christmas presents for nieces and nephews!
Thanks everybody!Edith--The way publishing and big book stores work now is so wonky that just about any book with a large print run (in this case, the Rapunzel paperback) is bound to be discounted drastically from time to time. Sometimes a publisher needs room in the warehouse, so they'll mark down a box or two, or twenty.Those books are out there, somebody's going to buy them. I like to post those deals here on my blog. I figure everyone who follows this blog has bought a book or two of mine at full price.I don't expect these cheap Rapunzels to be around too long (although they are back up right now on Amazon) once Jack comes out.To answer your question, no, I don't make as much. As a somewhat new illustrator, I rely on the advance payment the publisher gives me when the artwork is done. Royalty checks (the money I get from books sold) have never been a major income source for me. Some day...
Happy belated birthday--missed the blog yesterday.
Happy day, brother. Today is Max's birthday. A valiant month.
