I have already cracked some of the fiction genre by writing it myself. I don't have a solid fan base, I write for high volume genres and by paying attention to what people like. Simply, my strength is in market research.
I will be outsourcing my fiction works and I want to protect myself as much as possible against plagiarism.
Writers will be exclusively from the Philippines - producing 10k novellas which will be edited and proofread by me. Garbage not allowed. I am only hiring writers who have a good track record. I will not pay peanuts.
I am also here now in the land of the smiles, and I encourage that I meet up with all of them so we can have an eye-to-eye talk (ie. cross me and i'll find you!) (how else can I leverage this?).
So my question is how to completely minimize the risk of getting plagiarized? I can incorporate if I needed.
Should I employ software and track them?
What contracts would I employ to make them think twice?
What other tactics can I employ?
I'm looking to scale this so I have to make things right. And I understand the risk of plagiarism doesn't go away, I only want to minimize it as much as I can.
