Great Info on Advances

Check out this blog, from one of the agents, Michael Bourret, at Dystel and Goderich agency. He breaks down exactly what an advance means and how important (or not) a big one is.

Check it out here.

As usual you are the place to come to get the answers on publishing! Thank you for pointing us to the Dystal blog.

That was a very interesting post. While his comments were very even handed, I left a comment asking if a larger advance didn't provide a publisher with more incentive to invest in promoting a book in order to increase the odds that they earn back that advance.
