Hi, I have such a question for you, of course, that there is a main job and it makes a profit, but what kind of passive additional earnings can there still be? I am ready to invest, but only in something adequate and transparent, where I will eventually make a profit, maybe someone already has such experience?
I have been offered a 'buy back deal' by a publisher for a non fiction cookery book- I have to buy 2000 books at a 50% discount and they will pay for all origination and production costs, photographer, designer, copy editor, printing. I get an advance on royalties in 4 instalments of 10K. I believe that for the price point suggested for the book I will pay up front 26K which with the full advance would mean I had paid 16K to get the book published. Is this a bad idea? Am I better going down the route of assisted self publishing and how can I be sure to get a reputable organisation?

I’ve been thinking a lot about characters recently - the characters in my own book of course, but great characters from the books I loved reading too.
There are so many I love, and each of them are different, even within the same genre. Harry Bosch, Ray Mason and Tom Thorne may both have led police procedural series but each man has deep rooted issues that have shaped them in different ways as their lives have progressed. That’s due to the phenomenal writing of Michael Connelly, Simon Kernick and Mark Billingham, but also due to the way characters evolve.
I am currently writing a book about my favorite artists and bands. I will be mentioning many song titles and band names. I will not be quoting any song titles and there will be nothing negative about any of the songs or artists.
Where do I stand from a legal/copyright point of view in the UK?
I have created a group for newbies and have had 8 requests to join which is great. But I'm struggling to communicate with them all at once or get something organised where we can meet up online for group introduction and chats etc. Can anyone help with how it works on here?
