Rights reversion

Hi everyone,

I recently bought the rights for my book back from my publisher and I bought my book files as part of the deal. Even though they are explicitly included in the contract, he is refusing to give them to me until next year (the contract is dated early November) but he did not mention this before I paid and he'd sent me the contract.

Does anyone know if the only way to make my publisher honour the contract is to take him to court? I am tempted if this is the case as in addition to the stress of the pandemic he's been sending me emails putting me down and being generally unpredictable and unkind. To have the chance of a third party as a witness is tempting because sometimes I feel that people with a little power feel like it's OK to treat people working by themselves quite badly.

Any advice or info on similar experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    - [ ] I’m Juliana Favour by name, am from Germany, am here to testify about the good work of a man who helped me. My Husband left me with our two children after 10 years of marriage. A powerful spell caster called Dr Pius who I meant online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet. I was really searching for a good spell caster and I saw some series of testimony about Dr Pius how he brought back their ex lovers, some testified how he restored their wombs, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. There was one particular testimony I saw, it was about a woman called Kadris Moka, from U.S she testified about how Dr Pius brought back her Ex lover in less than 72 hours and at the end of her testimony she gave Dr Pius e-mail address. After reading all these, I decided to give Dr Pius a try. I contacted him with his via email address and explained my problem to him. After I filled the form he gave to me, he discovered that I’m from Germany, and he said he normally base in Germany also going there to settle some chronic conditions of people in Germany. I thought it was a joke on till he gave me his Germany whatssAp number, on that I felt all my problems has been solved already. And immediately I did what he asked, In just 2 days, my husband came back to me pleading. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. Dr Pius is really a talented and gifted man and I will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful Dr...If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve that problem for you.

    I think you should seek legal advice from those who specialise in this kind of contract law.

    Hello again.

    My publisher is now telling me he won't send me my files because " you can’t do anything with them until the Gardners stock is no longer in Gardners." and also "Amazon won’t allow you to sell until there is no physical stock available elsewhere".

    Does anyone know if this is the case for printing a new, slightly modified version of my book, that I cannot sell it until the stock of the previous printing has run out?

    Thank you very much!
