Contracts Companion for WritersBook Plus CD - 2007
Through an examination of more than a dozen publishing industry contracts, this how-to guide answers the most common questions writers ask about publishing, agency, co-author, work-for-hire, and other agreements. Written in a highly approachable style, this handy reference breaks down the complex legalese in each contract and provides a clause-by-clause explanation of their contents. The book's commentary on negotiation points and the consequences related to the absence or presence of critical verbiage will help those--from the most seasoned author signing with a major publishing firm, to an author thinking of signing a publishing deal with a print-on-demand (POD) publisher, and an author who aspires to publish to one who is thinking of working with a collaborator on a project-- who seek to demystify the process of signing into important agreements operate from a position of knowledge and strength.
