  parisattack: I typically got $10k advance, 12/15/18% royalties from Wiley. But you'd be amazed at the costs they can find against royalties. Most publishers the advance is a draw against royalties.

If you're not writing Harry Potter its a tough way to make money.

  parisattack: The writing is the easy part. Working with the seemingly endless series of editors in production is unpleasant; least how I found it to be.

I hope your week is good <TheFocus>! How about we take lunch from Tomashiro's - pint of mussel poki sounds great right now.
