What's it called? I'll buy it in an attempt to get you over the 5 figure threshold, even if it's gooseberry fool.
The Art of the Body, published by Dialogue Books (imprint of Little, Brown - Hachette). I promise it isn't gooseberry fool...
Out of interest how does it work? What % do you get on sales, do you get a flat fee etc?
Paid an advance, split into quarters (manuscript acceptance, delivery of edited manuscript, publication date, fulfilment of marketing responsibilities). If the book sells enough to earn off the advance, you then get a decent percentage of sales at the cost price.
