Monday quote

Many novelists think that, if only they can get published, break into print, then they will have made it, then all their worries will be over. This is far from the truth. Many successfully published writers must still keep day jobs in order to support themselves. It is unfortunate, because the press tends to publicize only those writers selling millions of copies, and thus the public is inevitably presented with a skewed picture of the publishing industry. Most books do not sell more than 20,000 copies. In 1996, only eleven hardcover titles – out of some 50,000 new books – sold over a million copies.

I'm old enough to know better, and young enough to want to learn. I am a reflexologist, fantasy writer and daydreamer.

  1. If I could just supplement our household income, just a little. Maybe pay for a vacation (for research). Then I’d be happy. 🙂

    Good idea to not set ourselves up for disillusion, my friend. 🙂 Happy Monday!
