Episode #29: Ame Verso, Content Director for F+W

September 22nd, 2014

On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast I talk with Ame Verso, Content Director for F+W, the world's largest publishing group. Amy has over 10 years of experience editing and commissioning craft books. We discuss what a winning craft book proposal looks like, how much audience size matters for potential authors, how royalty structures work, whether you need an agent, who owns the copyright for material published in a craft book, and more. Ame was very generous in sharing her knowledge of the craft publishing industry. Send her a message on Twitter @ameverso.

Please note that this show used to be called the While She Naps podcast. The name has changed, but the content and host have stayed the same.
