Top 10 Tricks & Traps of Publishing Contracts

Ten vital things to consider before you sign on the dotted line of a publishing contract. What rights are you actually giving away? Are you getting a fair royalty? Will you ever get your rights back? What does a “normal” publishing contract look like anyway?
