We have covered Contracts going in but we haven’t addressed how to get out of a Contract.
There are many issues that may arise that make you want to pick up your toys and go home. But, you have a contract, now. Your choices may be limited.
If you are seriously ready to try and break your contract with a traditional publisher, there are several things you have to consider before taking action. Keep in mind that publishers are in the business of making money from author’s works. This means they are in it to protect their own interests and in most cases, consider the needs of their company before that of the author.
Many authors embark on this mission to break their contract in an effort to take more control and see more success through self-publishing or through new opportunities.
