Rights required for sharing stories for this book are non-exclusive rights. That means that Gish and the writer can use the story in any way we both want or need to. Gish can use it in this collection of short stories (book), offer it as an excerpt on Crone Chronicles 20-20 website, or use it for marketing purposes, etc.
The author can also use her story in any way she chooses, including publishing it or reselling it. Ms. Gish did not need any rights to the stories other than non-exclusive rights, so crone writers did not lose ownership of their stories.
