For those of you who plan to publish a book, Kat Richardson’s insider’s view of book contracts is a must read.
It includes step-by-step advice for how to read a contract, and who to hire to read (or renegotiate) a contract for you.
While Kat is specifically talking to writers of genre fiction, I recognized quite a few elements that pertain to nonfiction contracts as well, including writing-for-hire.
It’s a long, substantive post. Grab a cup of coffee, and start reading.
