A few weeks ago, the Waterworld Mermaids ran a poll asking authors how much money they made from writing romance novels. What we found is that 42 percent of the respondents had made $1,000 or less in the past 12 months.
However, the response in our comments section was so great that we wanted to ask a few follow up questions suggested by the Waterworld Mermaids’ amazing readers. Here they are.
If the polls – or vote buttons – don’t show up for you on this page (some internet browsers don’t like mermaid polls), click on the link under the poll to take it. Please only take the polls that apply to your romance writing income bracket.
And don’t forget to share these polls with your romance writing friends and tell us your thoughts about the results in the comments below.

Good morning Avery Mermaid! Good news–the polls look good on my end 🙂 Thanks for following up on this topic.
LOL And they still aren’t showing up for me. 🙂 What a bunch of crazy. 🙂
Love that you’re doing this. I answered. Thanks for gathering the information.
Thanks for participating Jerrie!
Y’all came up with the questions. I love it when someone else does my work. Do you do laundry too? 🙂
Great poll! Thanks for doing this!
Hey, you ever have a rude question just know I’m the girl who will ask it.
Dang, I forgot to mention that the polls are open until midnight May 23, so share the links with your friends!
Somehow the poll slipped by me, but I answered these questions. It will be interesting to read the final results.
Great poll! That 42 percent statistic is shocking. Can’t wait to see the results of this one.
Thanks for the follow-up poll, which I answered! It loaded better on Firefox than on Safari, and I loved the immediate results. Good work!
That’s me Susan Mermaid masquerading as susilib, btw. WordPress decided I should be mysterious and blank-faced tonight, and I’m not going to fuss with the program. Believe me, WordPress has it SO wrong! But the poll is excellent.
Loved the questions. Will be interested in the breakdown.
I never saw the first poll, but voted in this one.
Fabulous poll. Thanks for asking the “awkward”questions – for many of us writing isn’ t only a passion, it’s a business and we need to be numbers savvy to make out work.
I didn’t participate in the first poll, but really enjoyed looking at the information in this one. Questions are great.
REALLY interesting results thus far.
took the poll. Interesting results.
