Dear Mr. Anderson:
I am happy to inform you that PublishAmerica has decided to give your book the
chance it deserves. We are offering to publish "Pappy".
As this is an important moment,
and an important message, please read this email completely from start to finish.
An email will follow this one with
the sample contract attached for your review. If you do not receive the email with the attached sample contract in twenty-four
hours, please contact me, so I can resend the document via another method.
I will be happy to answer any questions
you may have concerning the contract. The main terms are that we will pay you climbing royalties starting at 8%, you retain
the copyright, and you also retain all movie and audio rights. A symbolic $1 advance underlines that all financial risk is
carried by the Publisher, as we firmly believe it should be.
Upon receiving your e-mail in acceptance with the terms,
we will forward the final contract documents to you via regular mail for your signature. Along with your e-mail please include
your legal name, current address, telephone number, age and title of work as you would like it to appear on the final contract.
Please note that once you have requested that we send the official contract, we cannot further amend the terms. We strongly
advise that you read http://www.publishamerica.com/faqs.htm before signing your contract. Here we address frequently asked questions about, among other issues, why we never charge
our authors any fees, why bookstores cannot possibly stock all new books, and why we believe it is a good thing that bookstores
can sometimes return unsold books to their wholesaler.
Once the signed contract has been processed in our offices,
you will be contacted by our Production department regarding "the next step" for your book in the publishing process. Please
feel free to e-mail any concerns or questions dealing with the terms of the contract to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please visit http://www.publishamerica.com/shopping/ to see what our books are about, how we price them, and what they look like. You will find many thousands of
I also advise that you discuss your use of quotes with a lawyer. You will have
to obtain written permission for all quotes used and for any real life individuals mentioned. Per Paragraph 27 of the
Contract, you will be liable for any such infringements. I also suggest visiting the Library of Congress' website: www.loc.gov/copyright.
Welcome to PublishAmerica, and congratulations on what promises to be an exciting
