For Writers

A Place for Writers

One place to find all the information you need....

Coming soon...

In the next few weeks we will upload imporant information for all writers about:

  • Query Letters
  • Setting Goals
  • An Author's Business Plan
  • Press Releases
  • Workshops
  • Social Media

And much more. So come back here in a few weeks and I will have lots of GOOD information and ideas on how to do it right -- from authors who HAVE  done it right.

Meanwhile, I just want to take a moment to tell you that I am hearing from authors more and more from author who have lost money because they have bought products or services that were of little or no value. Please be careful...there are lots of people who are trying to take advantage of Indie authors who are eager to promote their books. Do not send your book files to them and absolutely do not sign any release that they might send to you.

A word of caution -- from my own personal experience when I was young and trusting -- absolutely do not sign any agreements or contracts without a lawyer. 

Keep writing, PatZi (with a Z!)

In a year you will have a book...

Protecting Your Intellectual Propery

Never sign a contract without a lawyer...

Joy on Paper's "Legal Eagle"

Looking out for you...

Once a month our own "Legal Eagle" answers author's questions about their valuable intellectual property. Bill Larson (of Larson & Larson) is a Member of AIPLA (American Intellectual Property Law Association). 

An important message from PatZi: Authors please, please never use a family lawyer or a real estate lawyer or just any of type of lawyer. Intellectual property laws are very complicated and I can tell you from my own experience that it can COST you are great deal of money to not protect your intellectual property. 

Enjoy this interview (06-20-2017) in which we discuss Douglas Brunt's book, The Trophy Son, and other intellectual property questions:
