I have just reread Gemini's story and I sit here with tears rolling down My cheeks.Reliving the years with Gemini have yet again made me realize how fortunate I have been and still amIt has been 6 years since posting this here on the Avenue,Gemini still continues to amaze,amuse and scare the beegeebies out of Me each and every dayEach and every one of My flock hold very special places in My heart,Gemini's spot seems to be a bit bigger After re reading all of the requests to write some kind of a book-I do believe that I shall try to make that a winter project-thanks again everyone
I have a question for any one that knows When Gemini's Story was published in Bird Talk magazine-I do not remember if I had to give them complete rights to the story BUT with the Bird Talk magazine being out of production-would I not have to uphold any thing that I might have agreed to?
Also has anyone used CreateSpace: Self Publishing and Free Distribution for Books, CD, DVD
is it any good? Does anyone have any better suggestions? Thanks
You may have given them rights to a particular story, but that doesn't mean they have the rights to everything you write on the topic, unless you signed a REALLY weird contract. As long as what you write now isn't too similar to the previous story (like, not copy pasted or closely paraphrased) and you don't reuse pictures you should be fine. You might want to see if you can find the original agreement with the magazine and what it actually said, and if you can't find it I'd suggest talking to someone with experience in copyright law.
What a wonderful true telling of a very special bird and woman's life together. I laughed and cried. I'm still crying over Stanley and would like to wring his owner's neck. Gemini is very certainly a Super Bird.
