This is just a question that I am curious about. I don't write romance novels, but my friend and I were discussing writing and books and royalties and for the life of us, neither of us could remember ever seeing anything about what the mainstream romance publishers pay for novels. A look through several sites turned up nothing and that really peaked our curiousity...why is this such a well kept secret??? LOL So how much do romance writers get paid for their books? Anyone know? A Set Fee? Royalties? If you can answer this, you will help two writing geeks stop being obsessed by something trivial and maybe we can get back to work on our own projects! LOL
