Aspiring writers take note: Eric at Pimp My Novel has created an amazing resource for anyone interested in learning more about the market and sales considerations for 8 fiction sub-genres.
Eric works in the sales department of a major trade book publisher and his Blog is dedicated to helping readers understand what happens to their creative child after it's acquired by a house.
Very useful information includes sales trends and the amount of a 'typical' advance. Check out the genre posts at:
Genre Sales 1 of 8: Fantasy
Genre Sales 2 of 8: Children's
Genre Sales 3 of 8: Mystery
Genre Sales 4 of 8: Sci-Fi
Genre Sales 5 of 8: Literary
Genre Sales 6 of 8: Historical
Thanks, Eric, for laying out the facts. What we do with that, well, let's just say some of us chose Ficton & Fantasy for a reason...
