Writer Tip: How To Figure Out When You’ll Earn Out Your Advance


Happy Monday Everyone! I found a cool tool that I think could help many of you however you are published. It’s a tool to help you figure out when you’ll earn out your advance. It can be really helpful for authors traditionally published and those considering whether traditional or self-publishing is the best option for a specific manuscript.

Hana Lee, a traditionally published author, has created When do I earn out?, a free web-based calculator. It will give you an estimate of how many hardbacks, paperbacks, ebooks, and audiobooks you have to sell to earn out your advance and also shows how much a publisher would earn in revenues. It’s an eye-opener and a very helpful resource.

You can find out more about Hana and her books on her website or on Twitter or Instagram at @K_Hana_Lee on Twitter.

Are advances still a thing? I thought those went the way of rotary phones and horse drawn carriages.

Thanks so much, Natalie! I hope to one day use this tool! :)

Luckily I'll probably never have to worry about 'earning out an advance'--and not because I sell so many books!

Interesting! I haven't had to think about this one before, but it's clear it takes alot o' books. Have a great week!
