Jim Hines, author of The Stepsister Scheme (along with other wonders that reside on my “to read” list), has been conducting a survey of published authors over the last several months. The final day for it was March 15, so he’s begun compiling the data and giving us some interesting numbers.
Did you know, for instance, that the average author sells only one short story before becoming a published novelist? Interesting. Take a look at the results so far and keep an eye out for the rest of the results.
