A publisher may hold the rights to your book now, but here’s some good news: the phrase “no take-backs” does not apply here.
The reversion of rights clause in your publishing contract should enable you, at a specified point, to at least reclaim some of the publishing rights.
Alliance of Independent Authors members Katlyn Duncan (a writer) and Ethan Ellenberg (literary and contracts advisor for ALLi) explain how to figure out whether you’re eligible for a rights reversion and then how to proceed down that path.
They additionally invited several ALLi members to share their varying experiences with rights reversions so you can learn from what worked (and didn’t) for them.
Learn all of this in ALLi’s ultimate guide to rights reversion.
