    Awe-Struck Publishing

    Okay so I am new to this forum and new to the publishing game. I had a hard lesson learned with Janet Kay and Associates and now I do research... Hopefully successful research.

    I have a publisher interested in my book -- Awe-Struck E-Book. I have looked on Preditors and Editors and they just say to read the contract carefully. I have not been offered a contract yet but I was wondering if anybody here has dealt with them before.

    I can not take another lesson like Janet Kay...

    Please, Any guidance and/or help anybody can give me.... I am a willing learner.

    Thanks.

    Awe-Struck E-Books

    Anyone have any comments on what to look (out) for on ebook contracts?

    This is from piers Anthony's epublisher site

    ------------------------

    Their contract is for only electronic rights, as it should be. But like other popular publishers, their submissions are closed for now. Two year renewable contract. 35-40% royalties. Can be terminated with 90 notice by either party. No audit clause? They offer instant downloading to book buyers. Submissions are closed; they are booked through 2005.

    February 2005 update: now they are open for erotica submissions only: sensual, sizzling, graphic sexual scenes, but no bondage or sado/masochism. Oh, I'll bet they have more limits than that. Royalties are a scant 30% of the gross. Still no audit clause.

    --------------------------

    Here is my take on it. 30-40% of cover price is pretty standard for an epublisher as is the 2 years length. I don't know what an audit clause is--perhaps someone here knows?

    They're an imprint of Mundania Press, and if one were to judge from that thread I don't think that's a good thing.
