    The music industry is a very different place. But there are good and bad agents everywhere.

    You should be able to negotiate an agreement wherein your newspaper business is not within your agent's purview. I had to arrange something similar on short stories with both my old and my new agent because I was doing a big work-for-hire project at the time. It wasn't a problem with either of them. If you can't come to an agreement on that with an agent, then chances are they're not a good agent for you.

      property I have self-published internationally, and like a back catalog in my music recordings, they are out of bounds for rights of anyone I would sign with.

      I have no problem selling short stories, I am just now stepping up to the plate with books.
