Getting releases signed by people involved in a book
My name is Jeff Goddard and I am from Mooresville, NC. I am writing a book titled "The Ones That Got Away". www.theonesthatgotaway.com This is my first book.
Thought I may be able to reach out to my fellow authors with a couple questions regarding "releases".
My book is essentially a collection of stories about folks who had a car many years ago (and sold it) and they have located it and purchased it back today. These stories are fascinating. Some are found by sheer determination and others by blind luck. Either way, it'll have many folks truly wondering what happened to their "One That Got Away".
OK, so the reason I am reaching out to you all . . .
1.) Do you require folks in your chapters to sign releases allowing you to publish their stories?
2.) What about the names they reference in the story (for example... I sold the Impala in 1977 to a guy named Chuck Green from Boston, MA)
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I'd also love to see a template of a release if anyone has one they'd be willing to share.
Thanks again for your assistance.
