Summary

Everything a writer needs to know about the law. This accessible, reader-friendly handbook will be an invaluable resource for authors, agents, and editors in navigating the legal landscape of the contemporary publishing industry. Drawing on a wealth of experience in legal scholarship and publishing, Jacqueline D. Lipton provides a useful legal guide for writers whatever their levels of expertise or categories of work (fiction, nonfiction, or academic). Through case studies and hypothetical examples, Law and Authors addresses issues of copyright law, including explanations of fair use and the public domain; trademark and branding concerns for those embarking on a publishing career; laws that impact the ways that authors might use social media and marketing promotions; and privacy and defamation questions that writers may face. Although the book focuses on American law, it highlights key areas where laws in other countries differ from those in the United States. Law and Authors will prepare every writer for the inevitable and the unexpected.

    A highly entertaining A-to-Z guide to the unique dialect of the city of Glasgow. Do you have a baldy clue as to who the bears and junglies are? Puzzled by the thought of some cheekywatter from your cargo? Fancy a day out at Fort Weetabix? Or would you rather settle down with some swedgers? After all, you don't want to be a stank dodger. Confused? You need this book! Michael Munro has won the eternal gratitude of Glaswegians for his efforts in popularizing their city’s dialect, universally known as the “patter.” This book is the most extensive collection of this rich and expressive language ever made. Often hilarious, sometimes coarse (but never dull!), the patter is the key to understanding this Scottish city and its inhabitants.

    What Are Story Grid Beats? 
    We think about the story creation process (writing) as one big “problem.”   
    You simply want to travel from where you are right now (without a story that works) to a place where your story takes on a life of its own. It works. 
    We submit to you that the practical way to unpack that very big problem is by breaking it into smaller, more easily solvable units.   
    Just as performers break down acting challenges into moment to moment micro-actions they call beats, so do Story Grid Beat books break your story problems into specific high-resolution mini-puzzles.  
    They’re like global positioning system reports for when you find yourself lost on your author’s journey. And once they clearly define the problem at hand, they offer procedural advice about how best to reframe your approach and solve it in your own unique way.  
    After all, you can’t begin to solve a problem until you clearly know what it is. You Are Not the Problem. The Problems are the Problem.
