What traditional publishing industry questions do you have?

Whether you're agented, unagented, a pre-pub or published author, you can use this form to ask any questions you have about the publishing industry. Not everyone feels comfortable asking an/their agent direct questions, so the goal behind the anonymity is to open up communication and foster transparency.

From publishing contracts, submission to editors, how advances work, writing in multiple genres, to publisher's marketing support, taxes as an author, et cetera--ask away! Your question submission is completely anonymous. (Due to the large volume of questions we receive, we'll do our best to answer as many as possible. This box will remain open for an indeterminate amount of time.)

Where will I find the answers?
