How Authors Get Paid

If you haven't seen the May 20th edition of The Editorial Ass online - "And You Thought A Royalty Involved a Crown", you need to check it out. This outlines how authors get paid. It's really important information that we all should know. So, my post is short today so you can meandor over to see what moonrat has to say about royalties and such.

That's pretty much the way it goes, except for some sneaky bits a few publishers slide in to make their half the the sandwich larger than it should be.

Those of us who work without agents, and who live in areas where any kind of intellectual properties lawyer might be hunted down and skinned as some kind of freak, have had to learn those sneaky bits and find ways to eliminate them.
