    if you think it's likely this is the only offer you will receive, tbh I would counter by asking for more upfront instead. I buy distribution rights for films in my day job and whatever advance we offer initially, there is usually at least some wiggle room as we are prepared to pay a bit higher. I suspect this is similar for publishers. It would be odd to start with the highest possible bid unless the rights holder is already close to signing with someone else.
