Answer for Terri

Terri asked...
I had a friend send me a link to this: It has average advances on romance novels through different publishers, based on a survey that Brenda Hiatt has done with numerous writers.As an agent, I wondered what your thoughts were on these figures. Do you feel it's a reliable resource?

Good question. Remember that the information on Brenda's site is all voluntary information submitted by writers when they sell. The numbers are close but we just don't know all of the details. These might be unique sales.

I always like to look and see though. The numbers are fun to play around with

  1. Thanks for responding. When reading ANYTHING online, I tend to question the accuracy. It's good to get a professionals opinion.
