  • Independent authors are starting to outsell the Big Five

    09/24/2016 10:56:04 AM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 30 replies
    AuthorEarnings.com has published a report on this very subject, so I jumped into the data. Their May 2016 report reports 1340 authors earn over $100,000 per year on Amazon.com. The striking fact here: “Half of them are indies and Amazon-imprint authors.” [Snip] Interestingly, Big Five-published authors make up a significant portion of the 100k-earners if they’ve debuted within the last 100 years. But if you narrow the timeline to those who’ve debuted within the last decade, indie authors make up an overwhelming amount of the big earners – see the figures here. The amount of high-earning, traditionally-published debuts dwindles as...

    In many circles, the Clintons are notorious for having enemies who mysteriously disappear at the opportune moment. Amazon.com reviewers played on this theme in mocking "5 Star" reviews of Hillary Clinton'sunpopular new flop of a campaign book — which even at the low, low price of $10, people seem resolute not to buy for some inexplicable reason. That doesn't stop people from buying Clinton insurance by giving the book stellar reviews. Amazon user Amy gave Stronger Together a "5.0 out of 5 stars," with a brief review entitled, "I want to live." Her review proved rather succinct: "Nothing new here....

"What we think of as liberalism today—the top and bottom coalition we associate with President Obama—began not with Progressivism or the new deal, but rather in the wake of the post-WWI disillusionment with American society. The Revolt Against the Masses explores the inner life of American liberalism over the past 90 years, beginning with liberalism’s foundational writers and thinkers—such as Herbert Croly, Randolph Bourne, H.G. Wells, Sinclair Lewis, and H.L. Mencken—who despised the new worlds of mass production, mass politics, mass culture....

According to Deadline, the streaming service beat out several other distributors to land the rights to the critically-acclaimed film from director Vikram Gandhi, which premiered September 10 in Toronto. Netflix was said to have spent $4.5 million to acquire the film, though the final number was not confirmed. Barry tells the story of one year in the life of the future president, as he attends Columbia University in...

The “lesson” consists of twelve panels, starting with two panels depicting the Republican presidential nominee commenting on Mexican immigrants and proposing to shut down Muslim immigration. It goes on to explain: “Some Americans find his rhetoric alarming, but it follows a long tradition of anti-immigrant public discourse.” Subsequent panels trace hostility to immigration from Benjamin Franklin in the mid-18th century, to the...

Patterson wrote and hosts a new documentary, “Murder of a Small Town,” that looks at two rural communities in Florida, Pahokee and Belle Glade. The towns have been abandoned by industry, are violent, poverty-stricken and offer a contrast to Palm Springs and other affluent coastal communities to the east. …

    Many men – and women too, for that matter – would love to play James Bond. Most of us would also love $150 million. But Hollywood superstar Daniel Craig is not most people. The 007 actor, who has played the spy since 2005, has reportedly been offered the hefty sum listed above to return to the franchise for two more films. But Craig has made no secret of his reluctance to step back into the famous tuxedo. “The studio is desperate to secure the actor’s services while they phase in a younger long-term successor,” a source told the celebrity news...

    How does America, founded on the promise of freedom for all, find itself poised to become a police state? In Police State, legendary "country lawyer" Gerry Spence reveals the unnerving truth of our criminal justice system. In his more than sixty years in the courtroom, Spence has never represented a person charged with a crime in which the police hadn't themselves violated the law. Whether by hiding, tampering with, or manufacturing evidence; by gratuitous violence and even murder, those who are charged with upholding the law too often break it. Spence points to the explosion of brutality leading up to...

The last time something like this happened was the Great Flaming Possum Outbreak in Toadsuck, Arkansas. I still have nightmares about that. It appears that flaming mice were running around Walla Walla catching things on fire. As if Walla Walla didn't already have enough things to worry about. Hillary Clinton could be President and flaming mice are running around making toasted cheese sandwiches. Personally, I'd rather have the flaming mice.

    Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama never tried to say he didn't inhale. In his 1995 memoir "Dreams of My Father," Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke "in a white classmate's sparkling new van," he would smoke "in the dorm room of some brother" and he would smoke "on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids." He would smoke it here and there. He would smoke it anywhere. Now a soon-to-be published biography by David Maraniss entitled "Barack Obama: The...

    As a big scifi fan, I noted the recent trailer release for the movie "Arrival." I also noted its connection to a short story written in 1998 by Ted Chiang. The trailer shows a fast-paced actioner including big explosions, zero-gravity, NBC suits, and an allusion to the aliens being unable to tell the difference between weapons and other tools. The story is very different. It is slow -- plodding, even --, boring, and unspectacular. The story relates the aliens' coming to Earth and setting-up rooms wherein the aliens face humans through a transparent wall. The entire story deals with attempts...

You two could travel around the world together!” Caroline excitedly nodded her approval.

    “American Heiress,” Jeffrey Toobin’s new book about Patty Hearst, is a clever companion piece to “The Run of His Life” (1996), his book about the O. J. Simpson case. Mr. Toobin has used the same winning formula of delving deeply into an American crime story that had tremendous notoriety in its day and retelling it with new resonance. Ms. Hearst’s tale is much more bizarre than Mr. Simpson’s. And much less of it has to do with legal proceedings, Mr. Toobin’s specialty. But in an age of terrorism, the chronicle of how a sedate heiress named Patricia morphed into a...

Through Saragossa the tabors sound; On the loftiest turret they raise Mahound: Before him the Pagans bend...
