Foreign Rights Agency
Foreign Rights requires research, patience and negotiations. Whether you are a self-published author or a small or medium-sized company, it is not always easy to find the time to approach foreign publishers to translate your novels. That's why I offer you my services as a rights agent.
What this involves :
The translation and/or creation of visual supports for your novels, from Back cover, summary, readers' reviews, biography... I translate into English all the information about your novel(s) in order to create a catalog and visual support to promote your books around the world.
Prospecting and targeting of publishing houses: Whether you are an author of thrillers, children's novels, SF or fantasy, it is necessary to correctly target foreign publishing houses. In contact with publishers from all over the world, I propose to do a whole research work in order to approach only the publishers likely to be interested in your work.
Negotiations : Once a foreign publisher is interested in your novel, I contact you directly to define with you the terms of the negotiations (advance, print run, publication date...). Acting as an intermediary between you and the publishers, I negotiate, on your behalf, a mutually beneficial contract. Once the contract is signed, I will accompany you until you receive the translated work.
