Stacy, the longevity angle is a sub topic of publishing structure worth dissecting. Most writers want to be paid to write - so it merits pointing out that this type of relationship is an option vs focus solely on the numbers.

I imagine we'll see change in part to the pandemic. Companies who typically were too big to be nimble realized they had to be. Will be interesting to see how it changes internal practices.

Have that card or script ready to show, if they do. Don't let it keep you from something that may genuinely ease your nerves (as old folx say lol)

"Too" in reference to the writing. 😂 Bless their hearts. But, totally familiar with the sentiment.

You and I both! But I've been pushing my BBS family to amplify our works more consistently. Sometimes I think people forget that we and you all at WNDB are also authors.

You can ask. I doubt they'll share it. They'll share what marketing plans they have. But rarely the budget of those plans.

Some of the most honest and valuable discussions re: advances I've had over the years have been w/. We don't write the same type of books. Our advances not in same realm but our experiences w/pushing the boulder uphill, the same. It helps w/perspective.

It's been a long time since I've thought about it. We're all hamsters in the wheel, churning out our work to get some semblance of consistent income.

The age old viscious cycle. And short of selling books out your trunk nothing an author does can truly push the needle promo wise. Bestsellers are about marketing and distribution.

That's really interesting. I always feel I'm the only one not earning out. It plays with your pride despite knowing you have ZERO control over that.
