Don't know if this is the right place to ask but here go's.
On Saturday i went to meet a publisher who was interested in my book.
I e-mailed him the first 10,000 words about 3 weeks ago.
He phoned me the same night, said he had read it all ( he told me it was very rare for him to do that) and that he really liked it.
He asked if he could see the rest and i sent a further 54,000 words (thats as far as i've got with my WIP.
This is the first proposal i've sent, there was no synopsis or background stuff and i was a bit shocked that things moved so fast.
At the meeting on Saturday we talked for one and a half hours and he said he wants to publish my book.
He said he would draw up a contract and send it to me to sign.
What i'm asking is does anyone know about contracts? is there a standard contract? are they all the same? and would i need a solicitor to go through it.
Thanks in anticipation.
