Hello folks. For the past year or so I have been creating a book on the history of some vintage furniture and have found a publisher that will be suitable. I have decided to contact a bunch of publishers and was wondering if you folks or anyone who has published can give me some pointers for not being ripped off. I am a designer by trade and have been ripped off before. I am new to this and don't know what to expect. I understand the publisher will take the majority and the book isn't going to a fiction bestseller, and I am not a famous author. I was wondering what I should expect to be a fair amount and how this whole thing works. Thank you for your help and all help is kindly appreciated. macpanda.
