Hi everyone, I have already done some research on this question, but I thought I should pose it to this intelligent group of people as well.

How much does the average published novelist make? Would I be able to live on
that income? I currently make $17000 a year at my job, but I would like to one day quit and make writing my career. Is it possible for me to make close to the same or more then my current salary?

Hope everyone had a merry christmas
