If one of your new year's resolutions is to write a book, you'll eventually have to grapple with the question of publishing it. The Australian Society Of Authors offers a useful guide to how to make sure you get a fair deal on electronic publishing royalties, which are proving increasingly important.
The ASA guide looks at the different royalty structures which apply to publishing through Apple and Amazon, as well as providing recommendations on policies authors should follow and legal issues to watch out for. The ASA is working on a revised version of the guide, due in January, and hopefully will offer further updates once Google becomes more prominent in the local market.
I'm working quite actively on getting the novel I wrote this year published, and electronic publishing is obviously a consideration. Got your own experience in this area to share? Tell us in the comments.
