Where's Rick Riordan?

According to Forbes, these are the world’s best-paid authors over the last 12 months.

1.) J.K. Rowling made $300 million last year, which averages out to more than $820,000 a day (or $9.50 every second).
2.) James Patterson is a distant second with $50 million. (Muscle up!)
3.) Stephen King: $45 mill.
4.) Tom Clancy (right): $35 mill.
5.) Danielle Steel: $30 mill.
6.) John Grisham and Dean Koontz (tie): $25 mill.
8.) Ken Follett: $20 mill.
9.) Janet Evanovich: $17 mill.
10.) Nicholas Sparks: $16 mill.
(I'm on the extended list at number 859,072.)
