I keep hearing the money is terrible and no writer writes for money etc etc. But I'd still like to know how little a little amount is, in the eyes of these naysayers. Is anyone willing to share a recent experience (post 2010) about a book deal with a trade pub? Advance, run, royalty agreement, etc. (No offense but please no self-pub replies here.) Anyone? Yeah I know we are all broke, and you do it for love not money, but I'm just curious. .
