Question about copywrited material


Recommended Posts

I hope someone will be able to help me with this question. I applied to a request for someone to write a romance short story and they want to see a copy of a romance story that I written. The only examples that I have are romance stories that I’ve written for other people that they requested that they own the rights to. Since I am not selling the material and if I tell the person that I wrote it for someone else so I do not own the rights to it, can I send it to them or am I not allowed to do it?

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Thank you.

I would not show a sample of a story you wrote for another buyer unless you have their permission. That is a double-problem since the buyer owns the rights and you’d be revealing that someone else bought a ghostwritten text from you.

I would write a 1 page sample story that you don’t ever sell to anyone, watermark it as a sample and put your business name and copyright symbol on it. If you have repeated requests for fiction and/or romance you can use it over and over again.
