Things I didn't expect about contracts. They are long. Ok, I expected that, but I had to sign 3 copies of each contract for all 3 books, meaning I signed 9 times, and the contracts totaled 306 pages! That's as long as my book.
Or how many questions I would have. I mean, it's just the next three years of my life! Thank goodness for my fabulous agent and Foundry's legal advisers.
Or how giddy I would feel when I packed up all 4 and a half pounds of contractual obligation and shipped it off to New York. It feels just like the hours following my wedding - exciting and joyful and surreal. But just like that day, there's a signed reminder that it really happened.
It really happened!
