I'm wondering how acurate this is. It seems that there are stats to back it up, does anyone know how bona fide this research is?

Thanks, Reagansgame, that Black Hole is a great resource, but as a datapoint, I thought I'd mention that I could not get to the website by clicking on the link. I had to copy it and paste it into the URL space on my browser in order to see it.

I don't know if anyone else will have that problem, but I thought I'd post this in case they did.

I once reported a data point to this website. I see what I reported in the list, so I know the data points are not all imaginary.

The link worked for me. I'm using Microsoft IE 7.

The black hole is only as good as its sources. If writers are posting their rejections and they sales then its great. If not, the numbers can be skewed, especially if several people only post their sales but not their rejections.

I post all of my rejections on there. I'll post a sale as soon as I make one.
