I read many articles online which say that readership for genre fiction has sharply declined over the years. Many say that TV, movies, and the internet are to blame. Here is one of those articles: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/sep/17/us-losing-appetite-for-reading-fiction-research-finds I'm hoping to make a decent side income from writing genre fiction, but, in my opinion, reaching for millions or even a six-figure income is a foolish dream. I think this is a valid claim not only because of the general decline in readership, but the saturated influx of new writers to the craft of genre fiction. After all, one does not need a college degree or advanced academic training to write fiction. Some brains, a computer, ideas, knowledge of fiction writing rules, and creativity are all that's needed. So, given these trends, is it actually reasonable to hope for millions or even a six-figure income with genre fiction writing? Is that a possibility with traditional publishing compared to self publishing? Or do you share my observation of a dismal fate for genre fiction? What's your opinion?
