There are MANY articles on rights of authors in traditional publishing. The Indie Author can now ALSO exploit rights:-
Short Story Rights
These rights can go to a magazine.
This is “what’s happening” now and it’s starting to become accessible to authors. The rights last 70 years after the death of the creator.
Foreign language rights
You can sell your foreign rights. I would like to get my Novellas translated, its just the matter of targetting the right country. Germany is HOT right now. You can also work with translators.
WHEN TO USE AN AGENT
It has to be worth their time for many agents to work on the above rights. Keep in mind that you can still get deals without an agent.
The publishing industry has changed. Indie Authors – exploit your rights!!!
I would like to hear from you….
Do you feel you have the ability to sell your rights on your own? If not, please explain why?
