By reading my book.
Writers in Wonderland: Keeping Your Words Legal (KP/PK Publishing 2013) is coming out May 1, and it's time for some shameless promotion.
Many writers see the law as a Lewis Carroll fantasy--inside out and totally illogical. They would rather write than worry about legal issues. But authors who ignore the law are the real residents of Wonderland.
Michael Poore, author of Up Jumps the Devil, says:
Kathryn Page Camp's Writers in Wonderland isn't just informative and wise, it is FUN! A big part of writing is learning how to cause trouble without getting into trouble, and this book is an easy course for accomplishing that. You can read it straight through, or keep it on hand as a reference tool. Either way, you'll find what you need to know in here. You will find it easily, it will make sense, and the reading will be a pleasure. Finally, a lawyer who can be helpful without making us want to scream.Writers in Wonderland was written for writers, not lawyers. It uses everyday language and shares cases with interesting facts to explain the basic legal principles of interest to writers. These include copyrights and defamation and book contracts.
Here is some information:
ISBN: 978-0-9892504-1-2So if you are a writer, join Lewis Carroll and his characters as they help you avoid the King and Queen of Hearts' courtroom. And if you know a writer or two, pass this information along.
Available May 1 at Amazon.com, coming soon from other retailers.
Because lawsuits aren't nearly as much fun as this book is.
