NCTE/ALAN and ARC update

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I've been so wrapped up in things I totally forgot to tell you that I'm going to be at NCTE and ALAN this coming weekend, and if you're there, I would LOVE to see you! Here's where you'll be able to find me:

5:15-6:00 p.m. Book signing after the program


As for the ARC update: For the moment, if you live in the US and are interested in reading and reviewing an ARC of The Unwritten Rule for your blog, please email me your name and blog information. My email is elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com


And, of course, the links:

Pimp My Novel on remainders--or what happens to all the copies of a novel that don't sell

Nathan Bransford on what reality shows illustrate about writing and publishing

Rachelle Gardener provides a great and very clear over view of sell in, sell through, and earning out--which means she talks about how many copies of a book are ordered (sell in--which can also be called lay down or shipped copies), how many copies actually sell (sell through--this is the number that counts. A publisher can ship six million copies, but if only one million sell, then your publisher is stuck with five million of your books--and see Pimp My Novel's post above for what will more than likely happen to them) and what happens when you earn more than your advance was through your sales (earning out).

Editorial Ass on the difference between earning out and making money for your publisher
