Pursue and manage a range of publishing rights.
Below you will find the IBPA wording regarding “best practices” in black, while comments about Prairieland Press’s specific practices are in green.
A hybrid publisher normally publishes in both print and digital formats, as appropriate, and perhaps pursues other rights, in order to reach the widest possible readership. As with a traditional publisher, authors may negotiate to keep their subsidiary rights, such as foreign- language, audio, and other derivative rights.
Prairieland Press publishes most books in digital (mobi, epub, and pdf) and print (hardcover and softcover) using print-on-demand and off-set printing (if the pre-order sales of the book show a demand for it.) All other publishing rights belong to the author to do with as he/she chooses.
