I covered this sort of thing at university in more detail but sometimes, it is nice to have a little reminder of how things work with publishers,agents and contracts, etc. My reminder today came from Benedict Jacka.
He’s written a blog post today talking about getting his first royalty check then went on to explain about how book contracts and getting paid works, among other things. It is very clearly explained and very concise. For people who haven’t been taught and/or haven’t read about how this work from the how-to books that are out there on the market and are coming into the industry not knowing how it works, it is brilliant.
I thought I would post it here for you to read and to enjoy: http://benedictjacka.co.uk/2013/11/01/heffalumps-and-royalties/
