Making the wrong decisions on the business side of publishing can destroy a writer's career. Longtime writer, editor, and publisher Kristine Kathryn Rusch knows this better than anyone. So she decided to write a book on the dealbreakers in contracts, agency agreements, and other business things that will ruin a writer's future.

Little did she know that it would take her seven months, lots of hand-wringing, and a lot of help from the readers of her blog. The result, Closing the Deal... on Your Terms, shows how the tiniest of decisions - talking to a Hollywood producer on the phone, falling for a typical agent's ruse of masking a contract for a letter - can have lifelong consequences.

Written for every writer, whether self-published, traditionally published, or hybrid, Closing the Deal... on Your Terms takes writers on a journey that will help them understand what they're selling and what they could accidentally give away.

"[Kristine Kathryn Rusch's blog,] The Business Rusch... is full of sound advice and analysis about what's going on."
- Jeff Baker, The Oregonian

"Kristine Kathryn Rusch's new book Discoverability is by far the best resource I have read to date to help indie authors succeed after the book is written."
- Chris Syme, Principal of CKSyme Media Group

"The bible for the self-employed."
- John Ottinger III, teacher and editor of Grasping for the Wind, on The Freelancer's Survival Guide
