Contract Advice

Elation that a publisher is interested in your work could lead to an overwhelming sense that you’re in over your head. Negotiating a contract can be stressful, and most authors lack the background to make sense of all the legal terms. That’s why we’ve come up with some basic advice for authors on things to keep in mind when they’re negotiating the future of their manuscript.

The information discussed in these guides should not be considered legal advice, and is provided as guidance only. ALLi recommends authors seek legal advice if you’re unsure about how to proceed with a contract negotiation.
