English term or phrase: “Offer $5,000 up front ”“standard escalating rates ”
(Offer $5,000 up front and 7 per cent on the first 10,000copies, with standard escalating rates thereafter. You can go as high as $15,000 for the advance, but don’t give away British rights or first serial. Buckingham Press has been whining about past commitments for overseas distribution, and we need to throw them a bone.
