Interesting coincidence: The number of six-figure deals reported across all genres was also 17%.
I assume the majority of those unreported deals fall into the "nice" category. You can see, however, why I didn't bother breaking down deal size for debuts. There's just not enough data.
Another commenter wanted to know how deals broke down by size-- not monetarily, but by number of books sold.
Single deals still rule the school, although next time I'll try to break down single vs multi-book deals by genre, and I suspect we'll see some interesting trends.
Any other requests? :)
- I'm terrible at math.
- "Debut" includes only deals that specified such in their blurb.
- Any deal that didn't specify two or more books sold was counted as a single title.
- These figures were taken from Publisher's Marketplace deal reporting. I didn't download any statistics from their website.
- I had a request for top YA agents and publishers, but those are stats PM provides, so graphing them would likely be a breach of my subscription terms.
