It's good to see that books are still selling, even if publishers are being more selective about offering book deals.
If Dave and I get lucky enough to land a publisher and a contract, we could be looking at a cool $5,000 advance [of course minus the 15% agent commission and then divided by 2]. Oh yeah, I wasn't planning on quitting my day job anytime soon.
It would all be worth it though just to say I'm a published author!
So head over here if you're interested in seeing a typical author advance.
