A New York Times Bestseller makes millions, right?


Think again. Read this written by Lynn Viehl, which supplies some figures that may surprise you.

The truth is that few fiction writers make enough to earn a living from book sales. The only reason I survive is I have a husband who earns too, and I earn money from other sources.

I assume it makes a difference if your books are picked up for film making. We hear that J.K. Rowlings(sp) is making a mint, but then several films have been made too.
