THE NEW YORK TIMES ASKS, DOES IT PAY TO BE A WRITER?
I'm often asked why I promote my books as much as I do. This recent NY Times article might shed some light on the answer. Does it pay to be a writer? Sometimes the answer is no. A timely article for me since I've recently been screwed out of pay by a publisher and a bookstore where I did a signing.
I'm not looking for pity or encouragement here. Just sharing the article. However, if you'd like to buy a book or three, that would be cool too. :)
