    Hm... Hard question. I'm very much into dystopia and other YA novels (don't judge) so J.K.Rowling would have to be at the top, as she is the first author to become a millionaire) and then there would probbly be authors like John Green, who have become household names through their books. Dystopia is also a very successful area, so authors like Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth are quickly heading up the ranks of successful authors (V Roth earned 17 million in the last three years).

    All of the ones who love what they are doing are successful. All of the hubbers who have reached readers with messages that are important to them are successful.

    If you just mean who earns the most money then I have no idea,. However, I can tell you something about them.  You can't figure out their secrets by reading their work because topic and style has little to do with monetary success.

    People who succeed at writing on content farms for money have at least one or more of the following attributes or attitudes:

    * Passion for their subjects.
    * Amazing marketing skills backed up by effort.
    * A genius for getting people to like them as people.
    * Raw determination backed up by effort.
    * Focus.
    * A love of writing.
    * Strong writing skills.
    * An outstanding ability to describe things.
    * Awareness of their readers, i.e. remembering they aren't talking to themselves.
    * Respect for their readers that comes through in their writing.
    * A naturally charming nature that comes through their writing without intention.
    * An ability to write things people like.

    If you try to develop many of those things in yourself, you'll have a better chance of earning money than if you don't.

      I love what you wrote! If you don't mind I'm going to write all that down and really strive to implement those characteristics in my writing - past and future if I don't already notice them in my current hubs. Thank you for such a helpful response!smile

      Anything that helps you to be the writer you want to be is a delight to share with you. In my opinion, every good piece of writing out there increases its readers' hunger for more.

    Yes. Kylyssa's is an extraordinary one. I very rarely see such good answers. Her first paragraph is supreme! Everything else is also exquisite but falls in a different category. She quite rightly did not mention names but Billybuc on Hub Pages would fit easily in some of her excellent categories. Check him out. What can I add?

    Successful writers have  logical and intuitive minds. They sense - without having the advantage of Hub Pages - what we need.

    Skill, is already mentioned - the ability to hold the reader from the word 'go.' Practice, Practice, Practice ...

    Marketing is not always necessary, and so I would add Grace, whatever that means. I know some very successful writers who never have the luxury of doing anything else than write their books. So why is this?

    Who knows? the usual 'right time' 'right place' and who you know kind of story, perhaps. Peace.

      So when u say hold them from the word go, do you mean capture the readers attention and keep it until the end of the hub? Billybuc is my current mentor. We talk often. He's the best. Such encouragement and guidance thru life. Thank you for your reply

      Correct, miss long, just semantics, that's all. Good you know Billy. I'd hesitate to say 'best.' So many genres and styles! Frankly he is probably the best I've read on Hub pages, but I'll still be careful with this word.  You are the student. Peace.
