- Reaction score
I entered a novel comp. which was apparently judged in 3 weeks. 3 weeks! normally, these take 6 months. The contract they have offered has terrible terms, wanting me to sign over copyright??!! and that they get 50% of any prize money + wanting any new work I ever write to go to them (though they might be negotiable on that). Let's face it folks, it don't look good - what do ya'll advice me? give it a wide berth?
