GalleyCat today has posted a mildly depressing article about the Financial Reality of a Genre Novelist. It specifically mentions those who work in the genres of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror. Essentially the GalleyCat article relates the obvious truth that we all know (or at least suspect), that it’s really hard to make a living writing books. So I guess I won’t be giving up my day job any time soon.
I do still hold out hope that mine will (once finished) be the next big thing. Don’t we all.
But these are all distractions. The cart is way before the horse. Finish the book first, that will be a feat in and of itself.
