Product Description
A hard-boiled detective story with a difference - Grimalkin is not your usual PI. Four legs, whiskers and a tail, perfect night vision and a talent for breaking and entering .... and a track record of crazy dames trying to kill him. He is also the only cat in history with a clown phobia. The case takes an even weirder twist when it becomes clear that a power-crazed parrot is calling all the shots. Sam Spade never had to deal with hysterical gerbil witnesses, pirate assassins or death by custard.

At 10,250 words in length, this is the first in a series of short stories featuring a very unconventional Private Investigator....

I usually receive notification on the 20th of every month. Nothing today so far. Anyone else experiencing a delay?

haven't seen the notices yet either. I have seen the slow sales day that always comes at the same time, but no emails yet.

I usually get mine on the 20th as well. Haven't received it today either. None of them. Will contact them to find out.

I don't have anything yet. Another member got one early, and had an unusual payment date, according to her post. Maybe Amazon is working on stuff in the background and things are mixed up?

Just got my emails a short while ago. Looks like they were just delayed a little bit.

Ick. I got IT, CA, and UK stating the 31st and had my fingers and toes crossed that the US (AKA the one that pays the bills) would still come through on the 29th. I guess early-April bills are coming out of the quarterly tax fund, which can spare those couple of days for re-funding.

Createspace was still the 29th.

I received an email stating payday on the 31st.  Got paid last month on the 28th. They give a day and take days away. But I'm not worried about Amazon. It's Smashwords.

Yep and still no dosh. But, I've had remittance advices for all the other stores today, all with a payment date of 31st. Not sure what went wrong with the US one, as it said I was getting paid on 20th. I hope it doesn't affect the actual payment.

Smashwords paid some money into my paypal account today. I'm still at the stage of being surprised at how often this happens now!

I have gotten notification for all but the U.S. I see many of you are saying you got your notification. Should I start worrying yet or do they stagger them?

I've found that US is usually the last one, and can take another day or two.

Yup, got my February money from Smashwords today too! :D

So I shouldn't panic that others are saying they got theirs in this thread?

I got mine today as well. I didn't email them because the US payment email is always a day or so behind the others.

There's no need to email them unless they're really late. A little patience is all you need.
