   RE: [xml-dev] Technical Book Slump

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

A slightly better honorarium can be had for writing a chapter 
on some knotty subject.   It can be a blow to later discover 
that while one is paid and might even be thanked in the 
credits, no authoring credit is acknowledged and certainly 
no royalties.  

Again, get all the information up front.

About 1/10th of the author's honorarium, but unlike authors, tech
editors seldom get royalties, so it varies with sales.
