In this show I talk to Mark Schaefer, international speaker and multiple best-selling author about his efforts to get the rights back to his book, the Tao of Twitter, from McGraw-Hill. As a publisher they weren’t keen to do a new edition of the book, which for a social media book, Mark thought was unacceptable. In addition we also talk about the lessons self-publishers can learn from his new book Known.
In this episode I talk to Orna Ross, Director of the Alliance of Independent Authors about selling publishing rights. She has recently co-authored the book How Authors Sell Publishing Rights (ALLi How-to for Authors Guidebook Book 4) with previous guest Helen Sedwick on this topic.
