Highest #Earning #Authors of 2014

At the end of 2014, Forbes magazine estimated the earnings of popular writers based on Nielsen Bookscan numbers and conversations with industry insiders (though I’m not sure exactly what that means) and then basically made a list of the “Highest Earning Authors of 2014.”  You can check out the article at Forbes.  Here are the highlights:

  1. James Patterson
  2. Dan Brown
  3. Nora Roberts
  4. Danielle Steele
  5. Janet Evanovich
  6. Jeff Kinney
  7. Veronica Roth
  8. John Grisham
  9. Stephen King
  10. Suzanne Collins

PS  It was mentioned that in the last year or so we’re seeing more YA authors on the list.  Books like “Hunger Games,” “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” and “Divergent” garnering significant attention and sales, enough to push their authors into the Top 10.

 


Video Saturday – Nora Roberts’ Advice to Writers

Okay, today’s video from Nora Roberts isn’t so much “Advice to Writers” as it is talking a little bit about her own process.  This Video Saturday is from her talk at the Washington Post to an audience of over 500.  Nora Roberts has written more than 209 romance novels.  She also writes hard-boiled futuristic mysteries as J.D. Robb but has also written under the pseudonyms of Jill March and Sarah Hardesty.  As of 2011, her novels had spent a combined 861 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List, thats like 16 years!  And of that, 176 weeks were in the number-one spot!  Hmm, maybe I SHOULD pay more attention to her process.
