WMG Writer’s Series

Deal Breakers 2013 ebook cover webIn recent years, traditional publishers have shifted from wanting only the rights they need to demanding as many rights as they can get, not just for the book under consideration, but for all books the writer writes. If the writer wants to remain a hybrid writer (utilizing both traditional and indie publishing)—or even leave and go to a different traditional publisher—he or she must negotiate a good contract.
In this WMG Writer’s Guide, international bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch helps writers navigate the changing tides of the publishing industry to make the best possible deal while retaining the rights to publish their works how and where they choose.

Chapters in this book include:
Deal Breakers
Rights Reversion

Surviving cover webMost writers run their careers the same way they did in the 1990s. But publishing has changed so much since then that any writer who works on the old model will no longer make a living. In this short book, international bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch shows you how to think about the new world of publishing, who to trust, and who not to trust. She also gives you a blueprint for survival—what to learn, what to ignore, and how to find help. If you are a successful professional writer—or hope to become one—then this book is for you.

The Pursuit of Perfection ebook cover webIn this WMG Writer’s Guide, international bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch discusses the destructive ways peer workshops and the quest for perfection derail many writers’ careers. Listening to critics and academics—amateur and professional—often strips out the joy of writing. And a failure to recognize writing as a business furthers the potential damage.

But Rusch offers hope for writers who have suffered at the hands of critique—external and internal—and outlines a path to healing.
