I just sent off 4th quarter 2012 payments to authors and editors (well, to those people who don’t still use checks). Overall receipts for the 4th quarter were down from 3rd quarter – down by quite a bit.1 Not quite sure what/how/why that happened, though I’m sure analyzing it.
For the authors and editors, I’m going to have more numbers and graphs upcoming.
1 Which makes my payment model a good thing – because while it sucks, I can keep sending authors payments and it can be turned around. Which, yay!
I noticed that with our sales too – a gradual decline starting in September. The good news is sales spiked again in January. Perhaps consumers gave priority to Xmas shopping with their disposable income?
