My eyes! My eyes! Any chance you'd edit that to a font mere humans can read?

Meanwhile, thanks for sharing the opportunity. One problem, though. (Don’t worry, it’s an easy fix.)

We ask that monetary pay rates be included in the subject line of all Paying Markets posts. (See the RULES OF THE PAYING MARKETS FORUM: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING A NEW THREAD/COMMENTING (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11828) thread.) Your post doesn’t include the pay rate, just that it's royalties and how they're apportioned.

This is a start, but without a clue what the price of e-books or print books will be, or how many copies are decent or average for Sizzler titles, we can't tell if we're likely to earn $2.10 or $210.

We need to have a best-guess figure because we've had repeated problems with our members being critical of pay rates. By putting an estimate of what you're paying for how many words right in the subject line, AW’s writers need never even open posts for paying markets whose pay rate they consider unacceptable for themselves. Problem solved--but only if everyone posting complies with our rules.

It will help us a lot if you edit your post to tell potential authors what kind of income is likely to result from publication. Contact the board moderator to add that information to your subject line as well, so those who deem it insufficient will not give you a hard time about what Sizzler pays.

Maryn, thanking you in advance
