Hi, Tawny:

There's a lot more going on at Mardi Gras than just bankruptcy. The publisher has been skimming profits and committing other criminal acts. The authors are understandably extremely upset and demanding releases via overnight mail won't save their books from the courts if the publisher declares bankruptcy within six months. For that length of time, the rights to their books can be considered assets of the company and can be attached by the court.

I'm extremely grateful that all I did was edit for Mardi Gras. I can take my services elsewhere without being held up by the possible actions of a bankruptcy judge. Yeah, I'm out some pay, but I worked with some terrific authors whose books will not see the light of day for quite some time.

It is a shame that new authors in particular are so vulnerable. Most publishers are good, honest people. We simply got ourselves mixed up with one who wasn't.

Thanks so much Danette and Kristen :)

Anon, I'm so sorry to hear about the mess at Mardi Gras. The more I hear, the worse I feel about it all. And I do appreciate your info regarding the return of rights and bankruptcy. As you stated, if the rights were returned within six months of the company filing, the right can be attached by the court.

Frankly, I don't see ebook rights being a particularly valuable commmodity. Ebook authors aren't paid advances, so it isn't like a publisher couldn't go out and get their own contracts from authors for little outlay. Why pay some kind of upfront amount for ebook rights?
