The year's top earning authors, according to Forbes

Forbes has published their annual guesses at the top earning-authors, for the 12 months ending June 2013. An interesting side-note; of the 16 authors covered, at least six do not use traditional literary agents (at least for their principal rights). Sadly my name is not on the list :(.

Their list:

E.L. James: $95 million
James Patterson: $91 million
Suzanne Collins: $55 million
Bill O'Reilly: $28 million
Danielle Steel: $26 million
Jeff Kinney: $24 million
Janet Evanovich: $24 million
Nora Roberts: $23 million
Dan Brown: $22 million
Stephen King: $20 million
Dean Koontz: $20 million
John Grisham: $18 million
David Baldacci: $15 million
Rick Riordan: $14 million
J.K. Rowling: $13 million
George R.R. Martin: $12 million
