Great Regulars: Despite the splash caused by self-publishing superstars

such as Amanda Hocking and EL James, the average amount earned by DIY authors last year was just $10,000 (£6,375)--and half made less than $500.

With Hocking raking in sales of $2.5m, Fifty Shades of Grey's James signing up to a mainstream press for a six-figure advance and a slew of deals for other self-published successes, the sector is starting to look like a gold mine for would-be authors.
