Hello! I have a few questions, please help! 1. Can my agent be from another country, for example can the publishing agency from USA publish my book if I'm in Bulgaria and we never meet? 2. How much money do you make per 1 book sale? How do they pay you? 3. Can i use phrases, jokes, a few sentences from another book, movie etc. something that is copyrighted or it is considered stealing and abusing copyright? 4. Does it matter the format im writing into or the program? I'm using kingsoft writer and writing in .doc files A4 page format.( i think). Does it matter at all? Are they going to force me to rewrite everything in another smaller page format to be able to fit perfect for the book ? 5. After the end of every chapter - leave the test of the page blank and start writing on a new page ?
