When MILs strike and other news

My de facto mother-in-law is visiting. For a month. She’s a nice lady, we get along…ask me again in a week. While I’m distracted by this and that, and a tour by the Dalai Lama, this month, I’ll post bits and pieces of interest when I can.

We finally got to watching S6 of the L-word. What did you think of it?

Oh, and I passed the 300th post mark a few ago.

Quickie on keeping your (literary) copyright

Holding on to creative and publishing rights of your written work is essential knowledge for every writer. I cannot advise strongly enough that if you’re a serious writer or an about to be published writer, you must MUST take a few hours to understand how copyright and contracts work. It will be a few hours very well spent. However, understanding intellectual property law and also the publishing marketplace is not easy for the average writer. You can hire a lawyer familiar with publishing contracts to vet all future offers, or you can take the time to learn the basics yourself.

This topic is included in every writer’s handbook, but those cannot replace actual legal advice – which will differ between countries. For a quick overview, have a read of this post by Victoria Strauss, and then follow the suggested links.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
