A buddy of mine Author Marie Harte makes a full time living as a Romance writer. Every couple of years she does a round up talking about how it’s going writing full time. This year she is talking about the hit a lot of romance authors have taken in pay. http://marieharte.com/a-new-year-and-new-numbers-from-a-full-time-author/#.Vo1NhVkbK1Q
I’ve heard from a lot of my romance writers friends both indie, epublishing houses and NY authors alike that they have taken a big hit in royalties over the last two years. For some reason Romanceland has been in a slow slump over the last couple years. This year we see one long standing epublishing house Amber Quill closing. And another very big epublishing house Samhain downsizing.
