I've belatedly ripped the environmentally unsound plastic covering off my latest edition of BRW to discover that 4 authors departed from the Top 50 Entertainers list this year: John Flanagan, Bryce Courtney, Donna Hay and Garth Nix. There's only one author left on the list, Rhonda Byrne of The Secret fame, and her earnings have plummeted from $5.2 million last year to $2.1 million this year. It hardly looks like it was a great year at the top-end of publishing - sadly.
