20,498, plus two more love chickens - that is confirmed

I attended a book fair today which was organised by The Book Nook at Newport in Shropshire. It was a fantastic event and I met so many wonderful writers, it was a pleasure just to be there and talk to other writers.

I sold two copies of my book 'One Hundred Ways For A Chicken To Train It's Human' and felt so excited that someone had picked it up while I was there and decided to buy it. I then went and spent my earnings on two other books from fellow writers that I will be blogging about shortly.

When I got home, I found my post, and a letter stating that I had made royalties from my book.

I am not bragging about this, I just wanted to say that sometimes, you really have to wait for any reward in this mad world of writing.

It has taken me three years to this month to make royalties on my book. I do not think I will never make lots of money from it, even thought I would love it if I am honest! But thanks to my little feathered freinds who inspired me to write it in the first place, and a lot of help from fellow writer Mr Simon Whaley, I have sold 20,498 copies of my book.

I just love to think that many people love chickens!


  1. Hi Diane,
    I think that is a wonderful accomplishment. You and indeed, your feathered friends, should be rightly proud.
    Here's to you and your chickens:-)
    Thank you for commenting on my latest posting. That was most appreciated. With respect and kindness, Gary

  2. A big well done!I hope this encourages you to write more and more! Much love, Carole x

  3. Congratulations Di! Don't spend the royalty cheque all at once - and don;t forget to treat your chickens!

  4. Congratulations on the earnings! Hope you make a lot more. I love book fairs! Is their a sequel in the works...
