I am just curious to know when I should receive my royalties. My book Invincible got published in August 2017.

If you have EFT, sixty days after the end of the month in which the royalties are earned. If you don't, then after you cross a $100 threshold.

Read the thread on this forum, "Know your Payments." It will help you.

It doesn't matter when the book was published but in which month sales were made. If you sold copies in August and are being paid by EFT, you should have received payment the end of October. Royalties from sales during September will be paid at the end of November. And so on. Occasionally a sale on the last day or two of a month gets carried over to the next one.

Payments are made 60 days after the end of the month of sales.
Sept pays at the end of Nov.
Any previously owed funds would also be paid at that time.

That's not possible. As Donna says, we have not yet been paid for September. If you have received a payment, then it was for an earlier month.

Good luck! -- NJ
