"We therefore regret ..."
I was distinctly tickled when my publisher (yes that's you, Ross) sent me a link some months back and urged me to sign up for author payments under the Public Lending Right. I didn't expect life changing sums to fly in to my account - but something, anything, would be a nice acknowledgement.
This week, I got my first online statement from the PLR and clicked the link with a warm glow of anticipation. Confidentiality requires that I keep my own counsel about the exact sum mentioned. But I was, I admit, a little chastened by the note in bold letters: "Under the PLR legislation earnings totalling less than £1 do not qualify for payment. We therefore regret that no payment is due."
