contract_bookevalIf a publisher wants your book, you'll receive a contract. The publisher is hoping, a little bit, that you won't read it.

All contracts are negotiable, but publishers count on writers being too dazzled or timid to ask for what's fair. I can tell you what's negotiable and fair, what's typical, and whether you should consult a lawyer.

Please  contact Catherine  about a contract review. It might be a very simple matter, or require negotiation with the publisher to get you a fair deal. I have seen so many publishing contracts that a review of the one you are being offered won't take long. Don't be exploited or sell yourself short.
