Publishing Terms for Beginners: O

In this month's post in the series of Publishing Terminology, we're looking at words starting with the letter O.

Online retailer - an online bookstore that sells books and other publications to the customer at retail or discounted prices. The major online retailers are Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple's iBooks and Google Play.

Option clause - a clause in a publishing agreement that gives the publisher the right to consider acquiring the author's next book before other publishers can do so.

Overdrive - a US-based distributor of eBooks, audiobooks, music, and video titles to libraries, schools, and retailers.

Can you think of any other terms starting with O that should be included here? Heard a term, and you're not sure what it means? Share your thoughts and questions in the comments section below.
