Default I'm thinking of publishing


I was thinking of writing a bunch of short stories and publishing it as an e-book.

I was wondering if anyone knew if I could use stories I've previously uploaded online before? Would that be an issue?

It's only an issue if you've allowed someone else the rights to publish, eg a magazine or publisher. If no one else was involved you should be fine.

Yep. If you own the rights, you can do whatever you want with the stories.

It shouldn't be a problem.

For safety, in future if you're posting anything on here you think you might like to publish put it in the 'Members Only' sub-forum

Well I have a few stories on my wordpress. Maybe I should keep them separate.

Great news. I am glad to hear that you are ready to publish.

To add to what other community members have said, I would recommend also asking the e-book publisher about its specific copyright laws. It's a good thing you thought about it.

Do you have a publisher in mind? Try reading the Literary Market Place book at your local library for more suggestions.

I haven't really thought about actual companies. I thought I'd research them a little more before doing anything. I just figured that even if my writing isn't up to scratch quite yet then I should at least have a goal.

I'll definitely have a hunt for that book.
