You're killing it, Emilie! Much appreciated!
Please post your questions here during the presentation; I will collect/combine them for the Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
As an author who has not yet published, I would be thrilled if a agent would take me on and I do not have any leverage otherwise at this point. This discussion seems to be on the opposite issue. Do you suggest not getting an agent in the first place or arranging a more generous contract to start, or...? In other words, I am looking at this apriori. Is there any advice for generating contracts in the first place?
Thanks for the question. I'll ask during the Q&A.
01:23:16 pnewell:Good question, Curtis. I'll ask!
Yes, the ToT rights are inalienable. Regardless of what the contract with the publisher states.
Any burning questions or issues that you'd like our presenter to answer/discuss? Now is the time to post them.
How many authors have successfully used this tool? Do they know?
@fern5292: That’s a great question! We at Authors Alliance are releasing a Guide to Book Publication Contracts for authors later this fall — Brianna can provide more details at the end of the presentation.
I'll ask, Andree!
I'll ask, Taylor and agilbert!

I'll ask, Claudia.
