Stats on books
Does anybody have any sort-of reliable statistics of how many manuscripts written get published?
And how many books of 100 published make a profit?
Thanks to Jan for this interesting article. Quote:
This led me to create a “not-to-do” list. Number one was no book touring or bookstore signings whatsoever.
Yesssssss! I've been reading about authors being exhausted by book tours, and I'd vowed to never make them. For writers, it's not your job to do the publisher's promotional work for them, your job is to write your next book.
