Publishing and Income

Here are some figures on publishing and income.  Notice that traditional publishing ranks higher than dual publishing only in the first two categories, and that self-publishing makes a massive difference between aspiring and published writers.  Hybrid publishing conveys a clear advantage.  Those extra options have a huge impact.  For what it's worth, I'm hybrid, and I'm past the bottom two categories.
