GUEST SPEAKER: Neil Plakcy
Our March 18 meeting will feature author Neil Plakcy discussing the writer’s “bundle of rights” connected with any creative work. As the copyright holder, you have the right to publish in multiple formats, media, and languages. If you are traditionally published, you may still have control of many rights, depending on your contract. If you’re self-published, you own all those rights. From audiobooks to translation opportunities to short stories and excerpts, Neil will explain ways to use your rights to promote your longer works, as well as how to assemble them in single-author collections and multi-author bundles for greater reach — and profit.
Speaker: Neil Plakcy is a hybrid author with over thirty novels, story collections and edited anthologies under his belt. He began self-publishing his golden retriever mysteries in 2010, and the eighth in that series will be out in 2017. He has shepherded a dozen audiobooks through ACX and two translations through Babelcube, as well as publishing short stories in anthologies such as Murder Most Conventional, published by Malice Domestic. His most recent book is THE NEXT ONE WILL KILL YOU from Diversion Publishing.
COST: $25 for MWA members; $30 for non-members.
