Hello!  Today is the first of two posts on the Apocalypsies Infographics; basically, I compiled a whole lot of data from helpful members of the debut authors group the Apocalypsies.  There are two groups of statistics; the first are from about 85 members of the group, and the second are from about 65.

Awesome. I love stats! I found the "submission time to publishers" quite interesting--not being at that stage myself, I really didn't know what to expect. Thanks for compiling all this info!
