“When someone buys my self-published book from Amazon (or elsewhere), do I have to pay to print that copy?”
Angela Quote: “Authors should definitely avoid publishers who require them to purchase and store numerous copies as this is no longer necessary with today’s book printing and distribution technology.”
PUBLIC FIGURES AND LIBEL: “I want to write a tell-all book about a celebrity I once knew. Can a public figure sue me?”
– Pamela Allegretto
Bridge of Sighs and Dreams
Nazi-occupied Rome sets the stage for Bridge of Sighs and Dreams, where the lives of two women collide in an arena of deception, greed, and sacrifice.
Of course ANY writer with a bombshell story should see a lawyer, and this isn’t legal advice, but…actually, people can say just about anything about anyone and get away with it. There are affirmative defenses that are unassailable: truth (and that means YOUR truth)…for example, I know this person smoked dope because we did it together; opinion…for example, in my opinion, this person treated me like a piece of crap and I think that stinks… And in the interest of public service. For example, I was there the day Joe was convicted of child molestation, so beware of Joe. Also, how “judgment proof” is the writer? He won’t be thrown in jail, so if he has no assets (and if he does, judgments can be written off in bankruptcy! and the person would be an unsecured creditor at the back of the line), you can’t get blood from a turnip. The question of good taste and whether the writer wants to get a reputation for as a blabbermouth is another story. Who wants to be friends with a blabbermouth? Not me. Unless someone messes with me or my family. You only have to read social media to know people get away with just about anything. So, CAN he write it? Of course. SHOULD he? That’s a personal/moral decision only the writer can make.
