How long to receive contract?
« on: April 24, 2009, 12:01:21 PM »
I was just wondering how long it usually takes between the time when your agent and the publisher agree on the deal and when the contract is actually ready to be signed.  When my wife was speaking with the publisher, the publisher said it woud take about a month.  Does that sound about right?  If so, do you know why it would take so long?  They already agreed on the advance, the bonus, and the % if the book reaches its "magic number."  Thanks.
