Rachel Thompson recently published a great post where she bares her soul wallet to reveal what she makes from sales of her three books.  Since a popular myth is that all one needs to do is write a decent book to spend the rest of her life between Oprah’s couch and a movie set, it’s a nice little reality check.

So, to all of my friends who very kindly and (unfortunately) very naively ask me, only half-jokingly, “when is the movie due?” upon hearing that my books have hit #1 on Amazon, all I can say is: “read Rachel Thompson’s post“… 🙂
