Almost twenty years ago my first book was published by a friend who was starting his own publishing company. The company was called Bibliotek Books and I was flattered that they should think my paltry offering worthy of publication.
In my eagerness to become an author I mistakenly signed away my copyright. I didn't think so at the time, but the wording on the contract (as my "friends" informed me, once the book became a success) meant that they owned the copyright.
Advice to any author ... never, never, never give away your copyright. It's all you have.
