Services For Publishers


We are dedicated to helping you with your most valuable assets – the rights to your works.


You are a big-hearted publishing pro and proprietor with an established business and wish to seamlessly expand beyond your core business into international media rights licensing with specialized support for your business.


Is this you?


Would you like your portfolio to go international, but you're not sure how to take it to the next level?

You believe there should be translation interest in your books and your current approach doesn't seem to be getting your books in front of the right people?

You wish to start in foreign rights or maximise your rights sale potential and looking to go beyond cookie cutter advice?

Does your publishing house receive licensing requests from Germany or within and outside your country and wish to have these professionally processed?

You don't have an in-house rights department, lack of resources or don't want to rely on a scattered network of different subagents in every territory?

You are juggling every single aspect on your own as a publisher, including sales, marketing, growth, acquisition, pre-press – and need a trusted ally and first-go-to-resource for your foreign rights?

Do you need help with author and licensing contracts?
