I recently published some interesting statistics about author income. Written Word media also published in late 2019 the results of their author survey. It answers some great questions, like how much new authors make, how popular audiobooks are, genre differences and more.
Their data is based on survey responses from over 1,000 authors in September 2019. They refer to three segments of authors when looking at the data:
- Emerging Authors – Authors who have never made more than $60k in a year from book sales
- 60kers – Authors who have made over $60k in a year from book sales
- 100kers – Authors who have made over $100k in a year from book sales
Emerging Author Income
How much are Emerging Authors (those making less than $60,000 per year) actually earning? This was a common question, and, thankfully, we have the data to get a little more granular.
