Book Contract Overview

Quick note -- I tweaked the font on those three icons from yesterday. Updated versions are now posted, if anyone wants to snag the new copies.

So I'm sitting here signing the contracts for Secret of the Snow Queen (or whatever it will eventually be called), and I figured some of you might be curious what a book contract actually covers. I'll stick it behind a cut tag out of consideration for the rest of you who could care less :-)

I'm not an agent, nor am I a lawyer. This is how I understand my contract to the best of my knowledge, but there's a reason I have an agent going through these things. No clue whether this will be interesting to anyone, but here it is. Let me know if anyone has questions. To other authors, I'd be curious to hear your take, and whether I've missed anything important.
