I have just read a report on authors’ earnings which can be found at It makes interesting reading for anyone who is considering what they should do about getting work published. This report confirms, by an investigation of the statistics from various industry sources, the conclusion I arrived at after attending the Author Lounge at the London Book Fair last year. There is nothing to be ashamed about if you decide to self-publish, in fact you may be doing yourself a favour if you do it properly i.e. have it edited and get a well-designed cover.
