Highest Earning Writers in 2017

Forbes, the American business magazine, released a list of the world’s highest-paid authors in 2017. 

J. K. Rowling heads the list at $95 million; James Patterson is second at $87 million; and Jeff Kinney comes in third at $21 million.  Dan Brown and Stephen King round out the top five.  See https://www.forbes.com/pictures/5978d26ea7ea436467b5abe5/highest-paid-authors/#58137954d79b for the list of top ten.

The top three are the same as last year, though the order has changed.  See https://schatjesshelves.blogspot.ca/2016/08/worlds-highest-paid-writers.html  for the world’s highest paid authors in 2016.
