FOREIGN RIGHTS

We are a globally-minded agency with an in-house foreign rights director. We work closely with our network of subagents to sell into 35+ territories internationally.

Approximately a third of our authors are based in the UK and Australia and we have close ties to those markets. We sell directly in the UK and Australia as well as through our UK and Australian agent partners.

We market our books at the three leading international book fairs—London, Frankfurt, and Bologna. Our pitching and selling happens throughout the year. Per our agency business model, we take a hands-on approach, and organize global publisher summits and international book tours for our authors.

FILM, TELEVISION & MULTIMEDIA RIGHTS

In an ever-evolving and growing entertainment economy reliant on underlying intellectual property, we are dedicated to exploring every opportunity for our clients. We do deals for studio and independent feature films, television movies, television series, documentaries, stage plays, streaming, documentary, virtual reality films, and other emerging media.

We partner with the leading entertainment industry agencies in Los Angeles and New York to sell film, television, stage, and multimedia rights. We collaborate with the individual film/TV agent that will be the right fit for and play to the strengths of each book.

During the deal and contract negotiation process, we stay intimately involved to protect and support our authors’ best interests and long-term career goals. We also help our authors in pursuing associated screenwriting opportunities as well as producer credits.

Our clients’ work has sold to major studios, networks, and SVOD/streaming services including Amazon, Netflix, HBO, Sundance, BBC, NBC, CBS All Access, MTV, F/X, Paramount, DreamWorks, Fox, Universal, Warner, and Apple.

AUDIO RIGHTS

The audio market is the fastest growing sector in book publishing and we are actively pursuing these opportunities for our authors.

Our long-standing relationships with audio publishers enable us to negotiate strong deal terms and stay closely involved throughout the audio production process to ensure our authors’ satisfaction with these adaptations of their work.

Fresh developments in spoken-word technology allow us to partner with top audio publishers and media companies on an array of unique projects that present our authors’ books and other original content to consumers through innovative new formats and platforms.

We recognize that this broadening market expands author branding and sales opportunities and we are putting focus on helping our authors take advantage of this cross-promotional potential.

OTHER SUBSIDIARY RIGHTS

We handle first serial publication, article/essay publication, short fiction publication, and licensing and branding opportunities.

We have negotiated lecture arrangements, on-camera appearances, consultant fees, and merchandising deals for our clients.

We are cognizant of the time, energy and personal investment our authors put into every book they write and we endeavor to maximize that investment for them.
