Collaborating With an Expert: What to Expect
from Catherine Dold, ASJA
From April 24:
Many years ago here in Boulder, a local writer was working on a book about an infamous crime. It was his first book, and he'd quit his newspaper job to take on the project. He was collaborating with a well-known crime writer. It was his big break.
Only it wasn't. When the book came out, the local writer's name was nowhere to be found. It wasn't on the cover next to the "big" writer. It wasn't below it in smaller letters. It wasn't anywhere on the cover. It was buried in the acknowledgments, with a line that said, in essence, "Thanks for the research help."
