BAH! I Must Needs Information!
Alright, guys. I'm a newb to the site, but I'm almost caught up on the "DnD" Podcast. I've been searching through the forums and have noticed a lot of people are VERY helpful here.
So, I have a conundrum for you all to rectify if possible? And, here it is:
I wrote a book back in 2008. I made the immense mistake of allowing Publish America publish my book. ( I don't think I need to go into details.) But, when I signed on with them (Contract) I was told that once my book was published by them, and I signed on the dotted line, that they would own the books rights for 7 years.
Well, as you know, I said I wrote it in '08. And, now, it's '16. Well, Publish America has officially changed their name. And, I don't know if that means I officially have the rights back to my book (I.e. I can edit, and ship it to other proper publishers, etc.) or if I have to somehow finagle this new company into giving me the rights back. Or is there some loophole that they get to utilize to keep my book? Mind you, it wasn't a best seller or anything. And, they will not answer my inquiries.
Sorry for the long post...
Your friendly neighborhood,
