Ebook rights? In the past, it was almost an afterthought. No more!
Check out this cautionary Writers’ Guild article by Victoria Strauss about your ebook rights. Think carefully whom you choose to assign them to! In Strauss’ words; “The fact that e-rights--which until recently had very little actual value, despite persistent predictions of an imminent tipping point--are publishing's new gold rush; and the fact that the lines between agents, editors, publicists, and publishers are becoming more blurred by the month, with more and more agents taking on more and more functions outside of just brokering rights and guiding careers.”
