For all the writers out there. I came across these articles a few weeks ago and have been meaning to blog them ever since. They contain quite alot of useful information on the bookselling market, especially concerning royalties, and are well worth a read. They’re US-centric but i think it is to safe to say they provide a rough rule-of-thumb no matter where you are.
A few years ago I made a promise to my writer friends that if I ever had a novel hit the top twenty of the New York Times mass market bestseller list that I would share all the information I was given about the book so writers could really see what it takes to get there. Today I’m going to keep that promise and give you the stats on my sixth Darkyn novel, Twilight Fall.
