You are right to think I am not making any money on the book. To date, several years after its publication, I have received no money at all for any of the copies sold. My agent did try to give me a check in the first year of publication, but it was too small to be worth the fee my bank would have charged to deposit dollars from an American bank into my Dutch euro denomination account. For that reason, I instructed my agent to give it to the Salvation Army or treat herself to lunch--and to do the same with any other checks of similar size or less. I haven't heard from her since.
