My limited book experience involves writing one (non-technical, non-fiction)
book for which I received no advance and a meager 8% royalty. However,
I did manage to find a publisher (North Atlantic Books) without having
to go through an agent, and with a mere 2 rejections from other publishers
before I struck pay dirt. So I consider myself fairly fortunate.

My question for John Hedtke and the other book authors on this list is:
Given a modest success with my first book (sales equalled my publisher's
expectations), how much more in royalties and/or advance should I ask
for with my next book?

I welcome all assistance, comments, and advice!


Live long & prosper,
Mike LaTorra
