Do you read the fine print in a contract?

Publishing contracts are like all contracts in one specific way. A publishing contract also has fine print. And what is not in the contract can be as important as what is.

For instance, did you know…

Unless stated otherwise, a contract can stay in force for 70 years after your death?

Make sure you understand what you are signing. Pull out those reading glasses and read each, and every, line. And don’t be shy about asking questions. Information is empowering. So garner all the info you can before signing on the dotted line.

Fingers crossed that one day I’ll have this problem. Ha Ha.

Anyhow, back to the subject at hand.

I’ve stumbled across a very informative article and wanted to share. So head over to Read Between the Lines by  in Blogs.

Remember…

Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory.

Did you know about the 70-year thing?

Have you signed a publishing contract yet? What was your experience?
