Writing, I think, is not apart from living. Writing is a kind of double living. The writer experiences everything twice. Once in reality and once in that mirror which waits always before or behind. ~Catherine Drinker Bowen, Atlantic, December 1957
Today’s post might look deceptively short. I assure you, it will take you quite awhile to do the information stored here any justice.
I asked some of my friends to send me any numbers they’d be willing to share on their self publishing venture and I hit the jackpot with Suzan Harden who sent me the articles that I’ve included here today. I thought about compiling the data and and spitting it back out, but it’s best just the way it is- it’s the honey pot of all honey pots of data!
I hope you all read through these articles and study the numbers. An educated author will always trump the one who simply throws stories up for sale.
Again, I want to give a BIG shout out to my friend Suzan Harden for providing the links. It’s always nice to know that folks are willing to help!
