Five years ago today I signed over the digital rights for Felafel and The Tasmanian Babes Fiasco to my then publishers, Pan MacMillan.
Famously, things went a bit pear-shaped shortly after.
It was nothing to do with those titles, but it did mean that they were locked up inside the company vault for the next five years.
I wrote to the publisher yesterday and requested that the rights be reverted. They kindly agreed.
And so, a happy moment…
I should be posting this over at Patreon, but it’s not the sort rubbish I want cluttering up people’s email, so I’m writing my thoughts here instead.
