Ever wonder how book publishing really works from the author’s perspective?

Well, you need to check out Dave Freer’s new blog post, which is at the Mad Genius Club’s blog site.   He discusses royalty payments, e-book publishing, advances, and more to the point, how publishing really works with regards to authors.  Excellent and illuminating.

If you haven’t heard of Dave Freer by now, you should; he’s a very fine writer of all sorts of SF&F, but most especially of the comic variety.  Read “Rats, Bats and Vats,” “The Rats, the Bats, and the Ugly,” or “Pyramid Scheme” (all with Eric Flint) and enjoy them immensely — but do so after you’ve read his blog post, which is listed below:
