Title: Question about the Carus Publishing group.
Post by: Cindyb on December 21, 2010, 03:17 PM
I received a check from the Carus Publishers, and I can't figure out what it's for. My records show I'm paid for all published pieces. I have two waiting with them, but I know they don't pay until publication and I haven't been told that either one is being published. So, I'm wondering- do they pay again if they reprint something even though they bought all rights? And do they send copies if it's a reprint?

The Cobblestone magazines do not pay for reuse unless your contract specifically said one-time rights. I'm not so sure about the Chicago bug magazines, because I think they sometimes sell other rights. If you were published in one of the bug magazines, just call the Chicago Carus office and ask for accounting, and they can check it for you. If it was a Cobblestone magazine, call the Peterborough NH office and we can check it for you.

With the holidays, it took me a while to make connections. But I finally found out I had a poem in the Oct. 09 issue of Babybug. I have not seen the issue, since my library has every 2009 issue but that one. But Carus is sending me my belated contributor copies, so I shall see it soon!
