What’s New at Steam
Steam has released another publication under its SciFi/Steampunk imprint, Steam at Harper’s Ferry Press, entitled “Guide to Creating and Protecting Fictional Characters.” The Guide was released on May 19 at the Steampunk World’s Fair at a seminar called “Character Development and the Law” held by Cynthia Gayton. Here is an excerpt:
“This is an exciting time to be a creative in any enterprise. You can develop stories, illustrate and publish your work with great speed and minimal expense. Doing things on your own is both liberating and inhibiting. Yes, you can do it all – from start to finish – the product, distribution, display, advertising and promotion are all controlled by you . … This legal guide identifies five categories of things a creative should consider before putting her or his hard work out there for public consumption.”
