Business and Legal Forms for Authors and Self Publishers

Professional and aspiring writers will find indispensable tools in this practical, complete, and time-saving popular resource, now updated to include a CD-ROM.Twenty essential forms include estimates, invoices, releases, copyright applications, and licenses covering authors' and self-publishers' every need, plus contracts between author and agent, publisher, designer, printer, sales representative, book distributor, and more. The collection provides a second set of forms perforated for easy removal, leaving the book intact for ongoing reference, and a CD-ROM contains the forms in Adobe Acrobat and the most popular word-processing formats for both PC and Mac platforms.
