Now before you scrutinize my question, I know that it is totally subjective; the writer's spectrum can range from the extreme of J K Rowling to a first time novelist who's book doesn't perhaps have the same appeal or advertisement.
What I would like to know is, how many novelists are able to become a writer, as a permanent occupation?
On average - or just a vague figure, how much money would the author receive from sales and other forms, for having their book featured in the top 10?
Perhaps you could give me examples of recent books and the amount of money made by the author. For example 'The Kite Runner', or 'The Life Of Pi'.
