Double-take

Doesn't 'out-of-print' mean out of print? Maybe not. It's my understanding that THE LEGEND OF THE VALENTINE went out of print earlier this year; The author and I purchased the remainder of the stock at a buck per book. I have a closet full of 'em. But, flipping through the publisher's 2006-'07 catalog — fresh from my mailbox — I just I just discovered the book still on sale. I'm confused. Happier than my previous post, but confused.

Just wanted to say hello. I post under the name writeaway and I'm a first time YA author. I've seen you on other posts.(Usually under Paula's or Varian's blogs.)

I'm looking at your previous posts and your artwork is wonderful! Congratulations on your success and hope to see more from you.

Don, will they transfer all rights to the art back to you? I don't know if publishers do that anymore. I made my publishers give me all rights back to my text when my PB went op. I had to ask special, though. Makes me feel GOOD to own that text again!

Congratulations (I think). This sounds like good news, although it seems kinda confusing.
