Flip’s Chinese whispers
It’s always nice to return from holiday to find you’ve earned some money while you were away. So I was pleased to pick up a royalties statement from the doormat at the weekend, detailing the latest half-yearly figures for the Chinese-language edition of Flip. Total sales for this edition, published in Taiwan last year by Global, are now just a few short of 4,000 copies.
(Before you ask, I won’t be calculating this figure as a percentage of the world’s Chinese-speaking population.)
