In this post, I discussed some pretty unacceptable contract terms being proposed by two e-book imprints of Random House.
After a great internet uproar, in which I’m pretty sure I had about zero impact, Random House has backed down, sort of, by at least giving authors an option at something more conventional. John Scalzi has more thoughts here and here.
A big improvement, but I’m not sure about this profit sharing deal as one of the options. It still opens the door to potential accounting shenanigans.
