Building on the best-selling success of the original Self-Publisher's Legal Handbook, Helen Sedwick wrote this expanded second edition to help writers stay out of court and at their desks.
Using 30 years of legal experience, Sedwick shows writers how to
* Set up their business
* Protect their copyright
* Avoid infringement
* Spot scams
* Save on taxes
This second edition covers additional topics including
* Choosing a pen name
* Using lyrics and images
* Fighting content theft
* Minimizing defamation and privacy risks
* Expanding beyond the book
Don't lose your copyright by signing a bad contract, or waste money by buying into a scam, or lose sleep by getting sued for defamation. Self-Publisher's Legal Handbook helps writers navigate the legal aspects of writing and independent publishing.
University of Chicago Law School graduate and California attorney, Sedwick has represented small businesses and entrepreneurs for 30 years. Her historical novel Coyote Winds earned five-star reviews from ForeWord Reviews and Compulsion Reads and is an IndieBRAG Medallion Honoree.
