The work is ongoing but now we have a permanent record of all of Andre’s contracts. This is the foundation of the Estate’s value. I highly recommend it to anyone who has to manage publishing agreements.

Ethan used the insights he gleaned from Royalty Reminder regarding the status of my book contracts to revert rights back to me. I wasn’t sure much would come of it but I agreed. His agency republished my work and my novels began to reappear on Amazon in 2015. In 2016 I earned over $150,000 in royalties and have been earning ever since. This motivated me to begin writing new novels.

Ethan shared with me the power of Royalty Reminder and I’ve seen it in action. By tracking and exploiting all my book agreements we have been able to add tremendous value to my career. It’s a tool, but what it produces is not only new editions and new formats, but money and pride in seeing your work live on.
