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:hug8::hug8::hug8:

Bird talk still does annual issues, right?

Bonnie thank you for sharing your amazing story. Truly amazing and heartbreaking about Stanley at least he is flying free.

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.
