Quick Post

I'm pretty busy with work at the moment, so this is just a quick post to share a couple of things.

Firstly, I found a really interesting piece on the net about the typical advance paid for a novel. Apparently it's about $5000 (so slightly over £3,000) in the US for SF/Fantasy fiction. The author has also compiled stats about how much your advance is likely to be if you have an agent or not. It's interesting stuff. You can read more about it here: http://www.tobiasbuckell.com/2005/10/05/author-advance-survey-version-20/

Secondly, I found a great little comic today too here: http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php There was a very cool Holmes-Watson one, and a funny "Dude watching with the Brontes".

Inter Vivos is ongoing as ever, and I'd better get off to the library and get some more done, if I ever wish to get my hands on any sort of advance. You know, I've found it's a lot harder to become a writer if you don't actually have anything to sell...

Hello Lucy. I have just started a blog for my gcse biology course. It's a wonderful subject, and I love going to lessons, but I need constant praise to get things done. You can find it, and a lovely picture of a vulture here: http://gcsebiology-alex.blogspot.com/

Good post btw. I would like £3,000

...Oh yeah, and it's weird you saying things like "it's a lot harder to become a writer" on account of the fact that you already are a writer. So there.
