So - now you're a writer. You've got your book deal and drunk the champagne. Congratulations. What next? Is this book going to be a one-off or just your first? If the former, don’t worry your pretty little head over things like repro, margins, PLR, bogofs, bungs and e-ink. But if you are serious about being a writer, you need to know a bit about the business. Your publishers will respect you more – or at least find you difficult to patronise – if you know what you're both talking about.

The Bookseller has an article on the need to register for PLR and how much you can miss out on if you don't do so.
The deadline for registering titles to include in the current year's payment (paid in Jan 2010) is 30 June, so get registering!
