The large print giveth and the small print taketh away

Via Miss Snark comes the word — or do I mean the Word — that author contracts at Thomas Nelson will include a clause stating they adhere to the Nicene creed.

Just thought you’d like to know, in case you were polishing up a book proposal.

Though I have to wonder what would happen to this requirement if Thomas Nelson’s star author decided that he was down with the Arian heresy.

    Miss Snark misunderstood a poorly worded statement in the PW article. The truth is that Thomas Nelson is not requiring authors to sign anything. Mike Hyatt at Thomas Nelson sets the record straight on his blog http://www.michaelhyatt.com/fromwhereisit/2006/12/editorial_stand.html
