Negotiating Your Own Book Contract

Close up of pen by Stardust_ creative commons
Sometimes writers negotiate their own book contracts.

Maybe you're going with a small press or a university imprint and they prefer to deal with you directly. Maybe you went out and got an offer and you're to kind of person who can talk the local shop keep into a great deal on that handmade blanket they're hawking.
