Go Hybrid or Perish
After striking a mega publishing deal in the late 1990's a very young (and very naive), Vincent Zandri assumed he'd hit not only pay dirt, but that he could simply write a novel every two years, collect a quarter of a million dollars in advance money per book, and live happily ever after. What he didn't realize was that publishing companies don't always honor contracts to the letter, especially when their author's books don't sell. This is the true story about why and how to diversify your publishing output - what it means for your work and your career.
