Back cover: This book shows you exactly how to protect yourself against legal action at every stage of the researching and writing process, whether you're a fiction or a non-fiction writer.
Verteran frelance writer Bruce Henderson nows that the more controversial or daring a story or article idea is, the more salable and lucrative it is likely to be for the writer--but also the more apt it is to spark a lawsuit. Instead of steering you away from these ideas, he shares in this book his "bulletproof approach" to writing that he has developed the hard way--with the help of editors, researchers, lawyers, and through his own experiences. This method has not only significantly reduced the number of times he's had to go to court, but has also kept him from ever losing a suit.
The advice Henderson shares in these pages can be worth thousands of dollars to you in legal fees saved and writing time preserved from never-ending court battles. So go after those "hot" assignmnets but tead this book first.
