    According to novelrank.com, Beth's book sold 933 copies on amazon.com in December. Assuming her proceeds are 30% of the $10.95 cover price, that is $3.29 per unit. Beth's efforts have raised $3,069.57 for the month of December to benefit her vanity charity project 'Bianca's Furry Friends'. She spent more than that on wine during the same period.

    Has anyone heard the audiobook as read by Robin?

    I get Amazon emails with announcements of the "Best Books for [month]" and at no time was the yoder travesty
    mentioned. I like that.

    Howard makes that much in an hour. Those dumbos probably spent $300K to produce the book and Beff probably got $3,000,000 in free media on her promotional tour.

    What a colossal waste of time and resources to keep that moron happy.

    My question is how many kids had nightmares after reading this book before they went to sleep . That's what I want to get to the bottom of .

    It was a vanity project and a horrible one at that.
    Just because she has the mental capacity of a pre-teen, it doesn't means he knows what kids want to read.

    I don't think it really exists. I bought the Kindle edition because it says it comes with the audio recording, but it's really just a PDF version of the book -- with no extras. I notified Amazon about the false advertising and got a full refund, but they kept it in the product title: Yoda: The Story of a Cat and His Kittens (with audio recording) [Kindle Edition]

    Not one of the glowing "reviews" I've seen acknowledges any audio recording.

    Author profits usually do not go higher than about 15-20% of publisher NET.

    So after production, salaries, marketing costs, warehousing, plus distributor and retailer cuts, the author literally makes a few dimes off of each sale.

    Beff doesn't even earn enough to cover the cable bill in Chimney Mansion.

    I wonder if Beth has the mental capacity to realize that the over cost of the book and marketing of it cost infinitely more then the charitable proceeds it raised. If she ever connects these expenses that they probably spent 500,000k to print and market a book that made say 10k in donations she would do the right thing and apologize to the NSAL.

    Whoever paid for this would of been better served just giving half the expenses to publish this thing directly to NSAL it would of gone infinitely further than this scam.

    Everyone involved should be embarrassed, this is like a celebrity throwing a million dollar party sounds good but comes off as really self centered and stupid the next day

    It's like a super expensive wedding, with a divorce within a year.

    Isn't that NSAL's standard operating procedure? They throw fundraising parties in the Hamptons that cost $100k to raise $10k in donations.

    The cunt has already moved on from promoting the book and is now tweeting about her new batch of completely healthy adoptable kittens that do not require any fostering. She sucks and every thing her gold digging ass touches fails including her "husband" the 100% completely homosexual Howard Stern.

    As far as the profits go, I doubt she even comprehends the purpose of fund raising.
    It's not about the cats or NSAL, it's about meeeeeeeee.

    As for any financial loss to Wiggy, it's just a cost of doing business.
    What ever it takes to keep her quiet and amused.
