Publishing Deals Demystified: Understanding Deals and Contract Terms Video Download
Reaching the golden moment when all of your hard work and dedication is validated is nothing short of wonderful. However, reaching that moment prepared to decipher if the offer you have received by the publisher is a good deal, is empowering. Many authors don't know what terms are important or what they mean. In fact many never get to see a publishing contract until one is sent to them. It is therefore unlikely that they will know what should be included, what is superfluous or inappropriate, what terms are fair, and what should be negotiated. In this tutorial publishing deals are demystified with concise, clear explanations about how deals work, what contract terms are important, what they mean, and what the industry standards are. You will gain a solid understanding about what to expect, and how to negotiate the best deal for your work.
