Negotiating a Book Contract by Mark L. Levine is the complete step-by-step guide to negotiating your own book contract — or to making sure your agent hasn’t missed anything important to you!
Negotiating a Book Contract applies to books of fiction and nonfiction, textbooks and children’s books, whether in hardcover, paperback or as an e-book, and is for illustrators as well as writers.
Negotiating a Book Contract is organized according to the typical sequence of clauses in publishers’ book contracts. You can quickly and easily match your contract, clause by clause and section by section, with Levine’s analysis and comments. Immediately see what you need added, deleted or changed to protect your interests.
