Alan Cross Tells The Panel What Being A Successful Canadian Author Is Worth
submit to reddit

Alan Cross, Evan Carter and Jennifer Goodhue were on The Panel with Strombo talking about how badly they want to sell out.

There's a problem for them though.

"Do you know how much money I've made from all the books I've sold?" asked Cross. "I've sold over 30,000 books. It wouldn't even begin to pay for a year's worth of groceries.

"It's because I'm a Canadian author and Canadian authors don't make any money."

Goodhue has a different problem.

"I've been trying to sell out for years. It's just that no one is buying anything that I'm trying to sell."
