A new quarterly report from AuthorEarnings.com is out. Its data estimates are interpreted to show that, quoting the text, “Self-published authors are clearly earning as much as traditionally published authors on the largest ebook sales platform in the world.”
AuthorEarnings.com is the site housing these controversial reports generated by Sand and Wool author Hugh Howey wih the help of an unnamed author-associate (referred to as “Data Guy”). Together, they’re creating quarterly analyses of estimated online sales and earnings.
BookExpo America (BEA) attendees: Howey will discuss details and implications of the new report at BEA’s all-new Author Hub on the floor of the trade show, during the Hub’s ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. Thursday May 29. Howey is a headliner Premium member of the Hub, with fellow independent bestsellers Bella Andre, Barbara Freethy, C.J. Lyons, and H.M. Ward. The event is open to all with BEA badges. Full Hub membership is still available for entrepreneurial authors.
