My friend has written two books, hes a complete technophobe (although he managed to write the books - took ten years!) and we've come to an agreement that i will publish the books, take care of websites, marketing, press pictures and promo videos in return for a 50/50 split on cleared royalties.
Interesting or important topic? Please click "vote topic higher" if you think so.
I'm self employed, well just started out and looking to use my SE company name (well 'trading as' name) as the publisher - just need to create a publishing agreement that would also specify the 50/50 split.
How long would / could i make the agreement last for ? I guess incase of death, it would be handed down, incase of my death, the managing of the accounts (paypal/amazon) will also be handed over to a next of kin. ....
He used to have the books on nospine .com and said he was offered £50k for film rights, could i factor any film rights monies into the contract? Ie this will also be split 50/50.
