Want to make a living as a novelist?

Real-life income figures from a genre fiction writer. Fascinating.

That is quite eye-opening!

The figures Konrath published are only for ebook versions of his novels and anthologies, which, while somewhat impressive, are an ancillary source of income.

He didn't publish his sales and income figures for the bound versions of his books, leaving an incomplete picture of his writing income.

He doesn't state his print income explicitly, but he alludes to it in general terms.

In any case, his is just one author's experience. Take from it what you will.
