EP128: Youtube LIVE show with Ed Wilson (Mr. Stay’s agent spills the beans on money and more)
This is not the usual ‘How do you get an agent?’ show, instead we talk about money, author’s earnings, shrinking advances, publishers’ profits, and that letter from the Society of Authors to the Publishing Association (and we get sidetracked into a conversation about socks)…
In this episode you will discover…
- How the income from a typical book sale breaks down between retailer, publisher, agent and author
- Should you check an agent’s credentials before signing up with them?
- How else can you make money as an author?
- And why you should never send an oven glove in with your submission…
Here are some of the links we talked about in the show…
- You can check an agent’s credentials at the Association of Author’s Agents: http://www.agentsassoc.co.uk
