We've included four versions of typical publishing agreements. None of these agreements is a model for you to follow. None will suit every author or every publisher. But they represent--in concept and language-- the agreements you're likely to encounter. And you should be able to do better with your own contract because you've encountered and analyzed those we provide here, using Chapter 1 as a guide, free of the pressure to sign on the dotted line.
AGREEMENT made as of this 12th day of July, 2001, between Insight Publishing, a division of XYX, Inc., a Delaware corporation with its principal offices at 1002 W.23d Street, New York, New York 10000 (hereinafter referred to as the "Publisher"); and Jane James Smith, of 31 Tempest Tost Lane, Lincoln, California 94000 (hereinafter referred to as the "Author").
