Keep in mind that the dollar figures and the exact sales are irrelevant to the ratio and percentages shown. What about when more authors win back the rights to their backlists? My friend Michael told me something before I saw the show and after he found out how much I paid to see it — I think he was saying it to make me feel better about the expense.
Ah, but the Cleveland Browns.
To do a first study of this sort on a smaller distributor would be less than ideal. Choosing which way to publish is becoming a difficult choice for the modern author. It might get lucky a second time and fall into the lap of the right editor at the right publishing house.
One gorgeous day in autumn, I was sitting on the porch, working, and she came outside and sat next to me, and it became clear after a few choice words about tattoos and nose rings and such that she had come out for the sole purpose of starting a fight.
What percentage of the overall reading market does this represent? The other eye-popper here is that indie authors are outselling the Big Five. So, one day, I decided to take on a speaking engagement for the sole purpose of raising enough money to take Elizabeth to see Hamilton. People look at each other with the same wide-eyed expression: I counter this notion with one of my own: You will be happier after watching Angelica relive the moment that she introduced her sister Eliza to Hamilton.
But she is 14, and in some ways that explains everything.
And now we finally have some answers. No, I guess I cannot put you there in the theater, though I wish I could. We also hope publishers and distributors will begin sharing their sales figures. A future report will nail this number more closely and also comment on why publishers lose visibility by not understanding how best to categorize their e-books on Amazon.
Those that do sit spine-out on dwindling bookstore shelves for a few months and are then returned to the publisher and go out of print. Because they are the most popular with readers.Damn! Super impressive.
I was just relating to some people how Amazon made at least $11, off my books in January, which is perfectly acceptable — as long as I make more! The main problem with writers like Joe (and to be fair, that’s a Tiny group) is that they destroy the dreams of the rest of us, I’ve always been a pretty good writer and at times I think maybe I should start blogging and try to build an audience, but then you read a Posnanski piece like this and you realise, why bother, I’d just be wasting everyone’s time, why pollute the world with my.Download
