The fact is that a standard agreement (of course suitable for each client) is not only the profession of ghost writing, but that it is also encouraged and promoted by authors and clients. From technology to trade secrets, confidentiality agreements help entrepreneurs everywhere make their claims and protect their ideas and investments. However, writing is a different world from business. So if you design your agreement, not literally or complicated. The content of the agreement is often no different from any other standard confidentiality agreement. It defines the terms of confidentiality, the parameters of the agreement and certain other common legislation. It`s insulting and carefree Sky-is-falling style blog posts like this one by Shelley Hitz (a self-labeled “triple threat” “Mom/Author/Minister”) about training authors (Trainee Authors?) that scare the authors the wrong way, it protects everyone`s interest in the agreement and offers some certainty that your proprietary information maintains its coveted confidential status. In fact, many independent authors maintain a standard agreement and adapt it for each new client. Most publishers really want to help an author, but there are dishonest people in every sector and you have the right to take the safe approach by signing the agreement. Confidentiality agreements, also known as confidentiality agreements, play a crucial role in the rapidly evolving business world that involves large-scale transactions. Publishers and authors see the subject quite differently than professional ghost writers and freelancers.
The agreement contains only three other paragraphs: `Added Info May 07` What should I do as an author? I`m still worried. So it`s really best to find a publisher who really appreciates the concept and wants to protect your hard work. The following example comes from a confidentiality agreement created to be used in an author that demonstrates proprietary software. As soon as you publish your book, anyone can read it. The window between me, which gives the author an edited manuscript, and the publication is usually tiny, a matter of hours, days or weeks. I`m not going to worry about mine hitting you, that`s fine. I`d be more concerned about everyone you`d brag to at parties and tell your story at work or on forums. Did you tell your wife? Your children? Have you told your friends about your story? Who did they tell? Aren`t they hitting you as more “cowardly cannon” than someone who does this for their livelihood? The editors and authors are really a very close community and many projects are still completed with a type of shake type mentality in hand.
Research the publishing process and get into the details of writing a good query, and you`ll have the polishing and skill publishers are looking for.
