This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during April 2017.
The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.
For a full breakdown of writing related progress and earnings, see the complete article here.
Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.
RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.
Fizzy is still not earning anything, and whether or not the outstanding earnings will ever be paid is still open to question.
Amazon US earnings decreased from March, although they were higher than April last year. Amazon UK earnings decreased slightly from the previous month.
InfoBarrel earnings continue to be unbelievably poor and the owners continue to have absolutely no interest in running the site.
Earnings from the role playing game supplements decreased quite a bit from last month, but there was no sale which does make a difference. Even with a pay what you want supplement, the month’s releases were above average in quality.
Slice the Pie made some more, minor earnings.
