Too bad it depends on the deal they signed before they got the award.

While a lot of additional sales might be expected after an award, 
as libraries pick up a copy or two and so on.

You could write each of the winners and ask but I think most would
refuse to answer, unless you had IRS stationary.

Thanks, Redfox. I can see that it would just be way too hard to answer
this question.
