Link Du Jour: Highest-Paid Authors
Forbes recently posted a list of the highest paid authors in the world. In it you’ll find children’s and YA authors sitting side by side with authors of books for grown-ups. Call me crazy, but I’d contend that a list like this was unthinkable a decade or two ago. The most amazing thing about this article? This quote about Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight:
At one point, Meyerâ€™s â€œTwilightâ€ series accounted for more than 15 percent of all books sold in the U.S.
Come again!? I repeat – whaaa?! That’s crazy stuff, folks. Be sure to click on the image gallery to see the full list. Click the image below to read.
