Did you get a "nice deal" on your book contract?

If you write books, you probably wonder about advances.

Your own advance.

And what other people get.

If you’re wondering if you got “a good deal,” there’s a great resource for you called Publishers Lunch. It is an institution in the publishing industry — everyone reads it.

They have lots of news and gossip about the industry.

Plus they list a few deals each week. Here’s their key to understanding the deals:

“nice deal” $1 – $49,000
“very nice deal” $50,000 – $99,000
“good deal” $100,000 – $250,000
“significant deal” $251,000 – $499,000
“major deal” $500,000 and up

PR LEADS alum Michael Port got a “very nice deal” for his new book to be published by John Wiley, according to Publishers Lunch. The book’s called ” ‘The Think Big Manifesto’ in the tradition of Napoleon Hill, offering a paradigm of centered collaboration as a new path for business and personal growth that produces dramatic results over the small-thinking ways that plague our everyday experiences in work, relationships and society, again to Matt Holt at Wiley, in a very nice deal.”
