Big Buck Authors

You've heard my mantra . . .
Writers don't make a lot of money. Keep your day job. 

Yeah, well, some do. Want to know who and how much? Recently Forbes released a list of the highest paid authors.

1. James Patterson $95 million
2. Jeff Kinney $19.5 million
3. J.K. Rowling $19 million
4. John Grisham $18 million
5. Stephen King $15 million
6. Danielle Steel $15 million
7. Nora Roberts $15 million
8. E.L. James $14 million
9. Veronica Roth $10 million
10. John Green $10 million
11. Paula Hawkins $10 million
12. George R.R. Martin $9.5 million
13. Dan Brown $9.5 million
14. Rick Riordan $9.5 million

Kudos to these big time writers. They can, officially, quit their day jobs.
