14 Highest Earning Author’s from the Forbes List and their Philanthropy

I’m still riding the glamorously charitable vibe of TIFF 2012 which finished here in Toronto last weekend and I wrote about the philanthropic efforts of some of its attending stars (Part 1Part 2 and Part 3). This is a similar theme that I have explored in previous posts like the 10  Most Charitable Celebrities from the 2012 Oscar Nominees, the 10 Top Forbes Power Celebrities and the Charities They Support, the 10 Highest Paid Celebrities from Forbes Under 30 List and their Philanthropic Efforts10 Top Celebrity Charitable Contributions Based on Publicity Value, the 10 Highest Paid Actors from Forbes List and their Charities and 5 of the Highest Paid Celebrity Couples and Their Charitable Associations. Today, I’m going to continue along the same idea but rather than feature the elite of Hollywood I’ll be looking at the charitable efforts of the world’s highest earning authors.

In order to calculate this year’s list Forbes spoke “to authors, agents, publishers and other experts and review[ed] data including Nielsen BookScan sales figures.” To learn about the author’s charitable contributions we used  Look to the Stars as well as a number of other sources. Now here are the top fourteen of world’s highest earning authors:

You’ll notice that “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy author E.L. James is absent from the list, but given the success of her book she’ll most probably make this list next year.

Authors, no matter how well their books sell, don’t elicit the same kind of publicity as Hollywood stars so often their good deeds go unnoticed but this list illustrates how many of the top-selling authors are indeed giving back.
