Who pays an author?

This afternoon I read an article by Jennifer Armentrout on who pays an author, apparently there’s some debate on whether or not the reader is paying the author’s salary. I won’t go into it all here, but I’ll link you to her. I think she explained it very well.


In the end, though it’s not a traditional salary, the money that any author earns comes from the reader and I’m immensely thankful for each and every one of mine.
