The word "essay" came to Russian from French and historically goes back to the Latin word exagium (speedypaper review). The French "essai" can literally be translated with the words experience, trial, attempt, sketch, essay.
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?
Even as we mentioned previously, OneNightFriend might be retrieved on browsers. Additionally, it features an indigenous i-OS program that's available from the appstore. We're not able to discover a native program for both Android apparatus. A comprehensive investigation on Google Play failed to yield any success. We did, but find APKs to get OneNightFriend that can possibly be installed on mobiles.
I was wondering what sort of writing space my fellow writers have when they are creating their masterpieces.
I spent quite a few years working at a tiny desk in a corner of a very small kitchen but since getting my own apartment a couple of years ago I've set my spare bedroom up as a study. I took a photo a few days ago of the desk area where I write and just wondered if we all have pretty much the same set-up or if there are some radical alternatives out there i.e. floating trays for use in the bath or even anything weirder and more wonderful!
I recently watched a documentary about Dennis Wheatley and was quite surprised to hear that he wrote all of his manuscripts by hand using a pencil.
Being left-handed and finding the physical act of writing by hand quite taxing, I choose to do all my writing on my laptop using Scrivener and wondered how my fellow writers on this site create their work.
My first book was published in 2018. However, the publishers (name withheld) have since disappeared. There website is gone, there have been no recent posts on the usual social media suspects, etc. My book is still being sold under their name on Amazon, however I would like to re-publish with someone else if possible. I've read my contract and as far as I can tell the term of the contract was for two years (renewable by mutual agreement). I was hoping for some advice as to where I stand with approaching agents, etc. Also, how do I get it removed from Amazon.
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?
