Managing Risk in Your Publishing Career

Sacramento area writers! If you’re interested in publishing issues, and want to see me speak live about publishing legal issues: I’m speaking to the Sacramento branch of the California Writers’ Club tomorrow (February 21) from 11am-1pm. 

The topic is WORDS ON FIRE: Rights and Risks, and the newly-updated presentation covers a variety of rights and risks authors need to know about and manage as part of a publishing career.

You can find more details here:

The meeting is open to the public and will take place at Cattlemen’s Restaurant: 12409 Folsom Blvd., Rancho Cordova. The organization charges a small fee (which covers lunch – and Cattlemen’s has great food!)

Among other topics, we’ll be taking a look at:

– Major traps and pitfalls in traditional contracts and self-publishing terms of use 

– Tax issues for authors

– Scam avoidance, from contests to anthologies and unscrupulous publishers; 

– and more!

I hope to see you there!
