How much I'm paid as an author

Just read this blog post and decided to add my tuppenny worth to it.

I published my first book in 2013.  No royalties or anything like that and I invested literally thousands of pounds to get it published.

My return on it?

Not even £13 yet.

£13 a second?  A minute?  An hour?


£13 in the entire 3.5 years it's been published.

Not even the unemployed earn as little in a day than I have done in the last 3.5 years!

Am I rich?

I've got a wonderful husband, two wonderful best friends, a mum and a whole family of in-laws, I've got a roof over my head and food on the table along with chocolate whenever I buy it, so yes, I'm very rich, just not in monetary terms!
