Between the Lines: A Legal Guide for Writers and Illustrators

Lynne Spender (Keesing Press)

An invaluable resource and an entertaining read, Between the Lines was commissioned by the ASA in response to daily questions about legal issues from writers and illustrators: protecting copyright; ensuring against defamation; understanding contracts, agent agreements and royalty statements; approaching ethical issues; and much more. Chapters on 'Getting paid' and 'Money matters' help make writing as profitable as possible, while 'The politics of authorship' examines from the perspective of an author how the publishing industry is changing in response to technology and market developments.
