I have no problem with advances going away. I understand that is how authors are traditionally paid but it is an antiquated system. Hopefully authors will get a higher royalty and will be paid on what they sell. I would think in the long run that could lead to a system where new authors are sold as e-books. When theycross a certain threshold, the Publisher sells the paper book.while not perfect, it would allow Publishers to publish more new authors with limited risk and reward the authors whose books do well.
