Editors are still on the brain, I guess.
So, are they paid based on how much a book they acquire makes? Or do they get a salary? And if a book does well, what kind of a reward does an editor receive?
I'm just wondering what kind of incentive they have to choose a great story to buy. Will the success or failure of their acquisition determine the future of their career?
I know. I'm nosy. :-)
It's an interesting business, I think. Being an agent or editor, being paid to read, is my idea of bliss.
Anybody "got the goods" on this profession?
This just in! According to a bookends post, editors do NOT get paid commission. Makes me wonder what their incentive to buy the best is. ???
