What does three days of work get you? Well, if you’re Stephen King, and you write a short story for the Kindle, you get $80,000. Seem like a lot? King agrees with you.
“I didn’t do ‘Ur’ for money. I did it because it was interesting. I’m fairly prolific. It took three days, and I’ve made about $80,000. You can’t get that for short fiction from Playboy or anybody else. It’s ridiculous.”
King also reveals that almost half of his reading is now done digitally.
