i have recieved an offer from eloquent books, i give them 675 dollars and they publish my first novel. for the risk i get fifty percent royalties. it seems like not that much money considering the long term potential. plus it officially gets me out there in the world. i was curious about if any one knew of some one that did this and what i can expect. how many copies i have to sell to break even, anything about the publisher. anything you can think off, for completely unpublished this might be the best that i can do.
