Negotiating Your Book Contract

SYNOPSIS: You've always dreamed of selling your first book.  Now that you're almost there, (the manuscript is on the Senior Editor's desk, waiting for the go-ahead), what's next?  What will the publishing house offer you, and what will be your responsibilities once you sign that contract?  This instructional book will take you step-by-step through the publishing process.  Starting with the contract, you'll walk through the editing process, the creative process, the marketing strategy, and finally, the promotional process.  Each step along the way, you'll learn what you need to do to make your book a best-seller.  A must for every writer!
