I don't think there is a text version of the discussion in the YouTube video.

But you can look at the raw data at:
http://authorearnings.com/

The YouTube video is worth watching because if I'm not mistaken, all the authors in the discussion earn a living as indie (independent or self-published) authors.

thanks

i have seen that site before
great info

writing is a VERY long tailed phenomenon

a few like rowling and patterson make millions
some make a small living
many are lucky to cover expenses
and most net less than minimum wage if they dont in fact lose money

[quote="Dreaming Imrryr"][quote="ostarella"]Does it say anywhere where all these numbers came from? I saw no sources listed.[/quote]

If I'm not mistaken, from what I can tell from the YouTube video, they crunch the numbers themselves and use there own Internet "bots" to harvest data.[/quote]

So to be taken with a grain of salt. ;)
