Thanks! Book 2 is already at least half done. But yes, an advance would be wonderful. Sadly, the book industry is much like the micro industry. No one wants to pay for them. :)

But I wrote it for me and if it sells, thats an added bonus.

You mean the self published book publishing industry  ;D

There are plenty of publishers providing advances out there

Finding one that will do your book within a year is the challenge. :) And plenty of the small press publishers do not provide advances, and some of the big ones ask too much from the author. So I went self publish. I spent 6 months researching and contacting publishers, agents, and industry experts.

Maybe Book 2 will get picked up. My editor said it was better than hunger games, but then that's my editor. :)
