The Alliance of Independent Authors offered a guide to rights reversions for authors, with anecdotes from member authors about their experience making that request.
If you’d like a longer story, though, or simply to hear a tale of triumph, Anna David is happy to oblige.
David takes us through the ecstasy of selling her first book to the ReganBooks division of HarperCollins in 2005 … and the agony of watching the deal turn out to be anything but what she expected.
There’s a happy ending, though; head to Jane Friedman’s blog to hear how David successfully fought to reclaim the rights to her first novel.
