Pitch University has a section analysing contracts, and looking at various legal aspects of the publishing industry.
Each post will review a publishing contract (or maybe two), and I will discuss five points about each contract that are good and/or bad. (See bottom to submit your contract for analysis.) Today I’m going to start with a contract from Sourcebooks, Inc., a mid-to-small size publisher based in Naperville, Illinois.
Have a look at some of the dangers awaiting you if you over-eagerly sign a publishing contract. Partial spoiler: it rates a 1 out of 5 stars, or 'Shred It'. It's entertaining in a scary way.
