Getting the Picture

Also, I thought you might want to know that I've been working with an illustrator who lives in Orange on the yoga poems. She hasn't yet completed any drawings for the chapbook, but I have looked at a few of her other things and we have discussed media, settling for the moment on watercolor and ink, media she often works in. It seems she has long wanted to do a book of yoga drawings, but was looking for the right writer. Coincidence? We'll see how it goes.

Good news!

What great news! You have been looking for an artist for a long time, and I hope you are very happy with the final work! Coincidence? I doubt it. Sometimes we get exactly what we need right at the time we need it most.

I hope it works out. Now I am thinking about the legal issues involved in such a collaboration and will copyright the poems.

Yes, good. Don't think you need to copyright, though. There are some sort of basic rights attached to the work already...

I discovered that. I am not quite sure what to do about rights to the book. I can't pay her for the drawings, so as I see it, 50% of the book is hers. How would one manage that, Marly?
