Ace artist and graphic designer, Ian Webster of Hazard-County Illustration, has taken one of Bill Draheim‘s photographic works and redone it as the cover for my speculative fiction piece “Jury Selection.”
The intention was to release the story on JukePop, a curator-site for serialized fiction, in order to see what effect it may have and what the benefits might be–if any.
The first part of the process has been completed: Acceptance. As of this morning, I have submitted the story.
The Terms and Agreements contained this monster clause, which means I have granted JukePop:
“irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, and commercialize (in multiple forms) on the Website (including on JukePop mobile apps) the applicable Content.”
Zoiks! Well, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” as the old saying goes. JukePop itself claims no ownership of the work, and one of its selling points is that fact that writers have gone on to put their collections in eBook form that is then sold to an already established fan base.
Thanks in advance for the support!
