Devising rules

I might still have copies of the author contracts I signed for short stories. The ones for the novels won’t apply here. I probably lost them all though, since a lot of places didn’t bother with contracts and I’ve been publishing my own collections instead of submitting to magazines for a while.

No matter. I will have to devise one. I’ll need signatures from all the authors and they’ll all need mine to say we both agree to having the story in the book – and to say the story still belongs to the author. I’m only buying the author’s permission to use it in this one book.

If I’m going to take publishing seriously, I need rules. As much for my sake as the authors. I can’t be random about something like this, it’s a business.

The first attempt is now in the menu bar at the top of the page. It will develop as I figure out what I’m doing in this new venture but this new game has begun.

Underdog Press is under way!

I’ll probably have to make yet another website…

    The Underdog Press page states:

    “Anything I’ve missed? Let me know in the comments.”

    I was going to let you know there’s no ‘Comments’ facility on that page; but couldn’t. 😀
