My husband (another doctor) and I just sold a book proposal to Hyperion Press (Disney / ABC). It’s a non-fiction for parents – about approaching school-based problems from a neurologic perspective. I think advances vary widely. The advances are higher for non fiction than fiction – but they say, don’t count on getting rich from your book advance.

I’ve heard that standard fiction advances are about $10,000 and computer books are about $7500. Royalty rates are pretty standard and increase with more books sold. Let me know if you want to know anything else. We’re pretty new at this though. Fernette Eide (www.neurolearning.com)
