How about million dollar book deals awarded to wealthy celebrities/politicians? I think that’s a genre we’ve seen enough of.

Working class writers would gladly split those book deals into $30k advances just to see a book on the shelf.

That way you could give about 460 starting writer book deals for every one Hillary Clinton $14 million advance [which S&S is unlikely to make back in sales].

Not just picking on Clinton here. I could go on.
