Limited Run Publishing

Rights System

Clarity over Curious King rights system. It’s a bit confusing as we publish series not just standalone books, but I’ll try and cover everything below.

For some clarity on the below – I refer to a new book/series as a publication.

 

Standard Edition

  •           If part of a series, then this book carries rights to the remaining books of that series, but not to new publications. If not part of a series, then the book carries no rights at all.

 

Numbered Edition

  •          Comes with two tracks of rights. Track One (T1) is for the remaining books in a series, and Track Two (T2) is for future publications of Curious King
  •          The latest book cannot be sold without both T1 and T2 rights.

o   Example: You cannot sell The Blade Itself without T1 and T2 rights until you have pre-ordered our next publication The Fifth Season

o   Once The Fifth Season has been purchased you can sell The Blade Itself with only T1 rights, not T2. T2 rights carry on to the latest publication

  •           Numbers 1 – 150 come with both T1 and T2 rights
  •           Any future publications over 150, will only come with T1 rights

 

Lettered Edition

  •           Comes with two tracks of rights. Track One (T1) is for the remaining First Law books, and Track Two (T2) is for future publications of Curious King.
  •           The latest book cannot be sold without rights.

o   Example: You cannot sell The Blade Itself without T1 and T2 rights until you have pre-ordered our next publication The Fifth Season.

o   Once The Fifth Season has been purchased you can sell The Blade Itself with only T1 rights, not T2. T2 rights carry on to the latest publication. (The Fifth Season in this example)

 

Two tracks allows people to purchase a book in a series they want, and still get rights to the remaining two. If a book is sold that has rights attached, these will be honored by CK and cannot be sold without.
