Writing in Britain or Europe?
If you are a Kindle author, up to now you have been paid in United States dollars.
And, if you don't have a US bank account, you have had to wait for a check to arrive.
Now, in more evidence that Amazon is going truly global, they are offering the option to be paid in pounds or Euros. All you need is a British or European bank account.
Go to your account information page for each of your publications, and change it accordingly.
Just make sure you get the account number right. A few authors don't, and then get very upset when the money doesn't arrive...
