“My publisher killed my book without telling me! What can I do?”

“My publisher killed my book without telling me! What can I do?”

Q –

Good evening Angela,

I published a book back in 2010 and I am currently finishing up my second book. My previous publisher dropped me without notification of doing so. What can I do about getting my book back in print?

Thank you for your time and your help.

    only if she owns the rights to the book. what did the original contract say about this situation? it is possible that the original publisher kept all reublication rights. if so they may give them back if asked since they dont want to republish the book.
