So all you ever wanted was an advance? Beware.

All many authors want, is to be offered an advance. Even though many advances are actually less than an author receives from ebook royalties, there is still glamor surrounding the author who can brag she was given an advance.

Well now the seamier side of advances is being revealed. Not only do many authors have to wait years to get royalties above their advances, now a publisher is suing authors to get the advances back, even when their other books have earned way more than the advance given!

Dear authors, read and beware.
