How much does the average amateur author earn?
I am considering becoming an author/writer. I read allot and would like to be on the other side of books as well. I am aware it is not a well paid job, but wondered how much I could expect.

Depends on how popular your books are. Ex: JKR makes millions because her series are popular. Author you havent heard of makes little to no money, because no one is buying their books.

Practically nothing. Most authors do not make a living through writing. Most have to keep other jobs to survive, or have spouses with decent paying jobs.
