Julie  Capell
Helpful in that it lists and defines all the different sorts of rights that authors (potentially) own--as long as they have't given them away in bad contracts! You can easily skip over the rights you are not interested in exploiting right now (fill, games, toys), but come back to those chapters when/if they ever become pertinent to you. A quick read that left me feeling better informed on this complex issue. ...more

This book gives an overview of the various rights available to authors wishing to promote their work in other markets. I found it extremely elucidating, especially in terms of markets I hadn't considered. There were a few gaps in the book for me - questions I still had left unanswered (since in some situations as a South African certain options are not available to me, as they are often focused on the US or UK). However, I am aware the author works with indie authors and I am considering joining ...more
