Hello, New guy here. I’ve been looking for an answer to two questions and hope someone here can help. I self published a few books over the last decade and next month I will sign an Option contract for a novella I wrote in 2013. My first question is; what happens to the royalties of any new sales? Logic seems to suggest the Option holder gets any new royalties, but I’m not certain. This is reason number 1001 why I need an agent! Which brings me to my second question. Should I still send queries to agents about the aforementioned book, if it’s going to be Optioned? I’m spinning my wheels on this, getting nowhere. I hope someone can help soon, I’m about to sign a contract without any representation. (Can’t afford a literary attorney right now.) Thank you for any assistance or advice!
