Let’s say you’ve always wanted to write a book. What would you do if a publisher made you an offer today? What if a deal was waiting in your inbox right now?
The truth is you’ll probably have an agent who can help walk you through all the fine points. But with or without an agent, every author should know the broad strokes of a book deal—what’s usually negotiable, what’s not, what to avoid, and what to celebrate.
There are a lot of details to know: rights, subrights, obligations, determinations, and so on. To help demystify the process, I’ve written a quick-and-easy ebook that breaks it all down to just six key factors.
I have not only signed several book deals of my own, but as a publisher and the former CEO of a major publisher, I have overseen literally thousands of book contracts.
We all know the best deal is win-win. But publishers are going to protect their investment. They’re also going to draft the initial contract. And that means you or your agent have some negotiating to do if you want a fantastic book deal. So what should you watch out for?
In this new ebook, you’ll learn learn:
- What rights you should hold onto, what rights you should offer the publisher, and why.
- The way book advances work, why you shouldn’t always take the biggest deal, and the simplest way to understand your book royalties.
- Who gets the last word on cover design, book format, price, layout, and more.
- Why faster isn’t always better when it comes to setting your manuscript due date.
- What you need to know about getting out of your publishing deal if you need to.
6 Factors That Make a Fantastic Book Deal walks you through the primary considerations of any book deal so you can be informed, equipped, and ready to make the best deal possible for your book.
