    In 1997, a well-known midwest unibersity press published mai dissertation as a book. Da weigh dis werks, once dey habs payed for de publishing costs thru sales, yoo gets royalties.

    Todai, ai receebed mai furstest ebber akshual royalty check!

    $26.00.

    Dat averages OBER $1.00 A YEAR! Nebber let dem say academic publishing am nawt profitable!

    shepmom: The title of your dissertation reminds me of one of my favorite lines from “Scent of a Woman”: If you get all tangled up, just tango on”. :)
