She’s the highest-earning author in the world.
As the highest-paid author in the world, JK Rowling makes more money per day than most people make in a year. The Harry Potter creator made an estimated £74 million in the year ending 31 May 2018, and online bookshop Wordery has broken that down into her monthly, daily and hourly earnings.
According to the site, Rowling earns approximately £6,190,042 per day, which equates to £203,508 per day; £8,480 every hour; or an incredible £142 per minute. Wordery has gone one step further and produced an online tool which also works out how long it would take the author to earn your annual salary (which is incredibly depressing but strangely compelling).
