That Man Behind the Curtain – February 2020

The tummy is not a trap.

We’re almost all done. This is our penultimate look behind the scenes. Here’s a look at the numbers.

The Money Aspect

Amounts in parentheses are losses/expenses.

Web Resources: (-$17.06)
Stories: (-$50.00)
Art: (-$176.17)
Advertising: (-$279.08)
Processing Fees: (-$13.91)
Donations: $80.71
Online Book Sales: $20.11

Total: (-$336.40)
QTD: (-$763.33)
YTD: (-$763.33)
All Time: (-$46,125.54)

As usual, I try to list costs for art and stories under the month that the stories run on the site rather than when I pay them. (This does not apply to special content for quarterlies, which does not have a specific month associated with it.) Sales are for sales when they take place, not when they’re actually paid out to me. Online book sales reflect the royalties given after the retailer takes their cut. Physical book sales represent gross income, not counting the cost of the physical book. Donations include Patreon, as well as other money sent to us outside of standard sales.
