In other news, have you seen John Green’s post about big advances vs. small advances? What’s your take? Would you rather have more money up front, or the possibility of more later? Basically, are you a gambler? You can post your comments here, or add them to the already fascinating discussion on John’s blog.
There’s been some really interesting comments on yesterday’s post about Lev Grossman‘s article on Modern Book Publishing. I was particularly taken by Joe’s comment. “The existence of a publishing hurdle will make the accomplishment of getting published a more meaningful one when it finally comes and, beyond that, will make it more likely that I will actually enjoy some success in connecting to readers, because it keeps me from inflicting my worst work on people.” That’s really close to what I was getting at!
