Book Contracts 101

Don’t let your excitement over a book deal lead you to agree to terms that are less than ideal.  Authors Guild Director of Legal Services Michael Gross and Legal Fellow Christie Soule will guide you through the most important terms to negotiate when considering a traditional publishing contract, focusing on critical provisions and perils to avoid.  The rights, money and warranty and indemnity provisions will be discussed in depth and members will have a chance to ask questions.
