In light of your communication with me to the effect:
Thank you for contacting iUniverse. Jeff Cook forwarded your e-mail to us regarding your question about your royalties. I checked on your account and I show at the end of 3rd Quarter for 2006 you have a total of $18.10. We do not issue out a check unless the amount is over $25.00. I checked on your previous statements and I do not show that a check has been issued for royalties in this year. Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.

Thank you for the follow up :) LOL
I quit putting my energy into promotion of my mediocre “FSBO” novel ~ which newspaper’s will not publicize or post book reviews about because I depict newspapers as villain’s, blame newspapers for being responsible for aiding rapists, robbers, and murderers in the interest of selling “Classified Advertising” to naive, “Uninformed”, “I can do it myself and save money”, FOR SALE BY OWNERS).
Newspapers do not want it known that — IN THE INTEREST OF “PROFITS” — RATHER THAN PUBLISHING THE “REAL FACTS” IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THEIR READERS — HOME SELLERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO BUY MORE AND BIGGER FOR SALE BY OWNERS ADS.
I didn’t think that I could sell any less FOR SALE BY OWNERS:FSBO novels than I did in the previous two years. OK, I was wrong. “Shucks!”
The good news is I HAVE HAD OVER 33,000 READERS OF MY EZINE ARTICLES!
I Am writing this reply to you in a form that I can submit for publication as an ezine article. By so doing, I suspect that I will rapidly sell some more of my novels yet this year. You are able to process and ship orders via your toll free order number and Amazon and Barnes and Noble can still get them out to buyers before Christmas. So also can most other booksellers.
Ezine publishers may download this article and God Only knows who all will order FORSALE BY OWNERS:FSBO written and published by iUniverse under my former name Russ Miles.
God revealed my real name to be “Rascal” the same month that He “Cured” me of “Incurable” MS (Multiple Sclerosis). That was in May of 2006. Articles about these miraculous events and others can be assessed via my websites including Http://MilesBooks.com and http://Jesus4You.ws. The Lord Also The Lord “Chose” me, “Rascal” , to be His “Playfully Mischievous Apostle”.
Readers may place orders by calling my honest publisher direct. 1-800-AUTHORS or contacting your favorite bookseller now. Please do! I would like to finish out this year by earning a little something.
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year 2007
P.S. I do intend to make a “Thriller~Mystery” movie of my “FSBO” novel – as my brother has done. See Robert’s “Best Selling” Movie Trailer at http://Fastwalkers.com
