3 – 2 – 1 Contract

So for the last couple months we’ve been selling the foreign rights to the book. And by “we” I mean my agent and his compatriots. My contribution usually amounts to listening to the offer, then asking, “Is it a good offer?” They explain to me why it is, in fact, a good offer. Then I say, “Okay, let’s do it.” Yet another example of why it’s so important to have an agent you can trust.

More recently, the contracts have been coming in. It’s a new and exciting world of me not really knowing what the hell I’m doing. You know those reading comprehension tests you took back in high school where you had to read a passage and then answer a question? These contracts are like that, except instead of a low SAT score, I’m worried if I don’t pay attention someone will slide in some a clause that gives them the legal right to one of my testicles or something.

This is the most recent contract to show up, the Russian one….

I’m not exactly sure what they use for money over there. Rupees or something like that. Regular money would be nice so I could pay off my credit card debt, but once these contracts go through, I’ll be able to buy a better shield and stock up on arrows. If I have enough left over after I’m done with that, I might buy a blue potion, too. Just to be safe….

Later all,

pat
