Perfect for : You consider foreign rights sales, licensing and global marketing as integral parts of your marketing strategy.

Is this you?

You are a big-hearted publisher and wish to seamlessly expand beyond your core business into international foreign rights licensing for your book program with specialized support and a fast turn-around time so you can focus on your own business.

You are a passionate author, have written and traditionally or self-published one or multiple books and sold 5.000+ copies on a reasonable price and want to place your book(s) in front of thousands of international commissioning editors and potential licensees with custom-tailored support for your unique situation.

Your Rise & Shine Global Rights Representation

The Wittmann Agency is committed to an eclectic mix of quality self-help and companion books, strong-selling non-fiction, discerning fiction and select books for children and young adults that are beautiful, inspiring and thoughtful and make the perfect licensed edition to travel the world.

The Wittmann Agency works directly with international publishers in over 90 countries of the world, which offers you a much higher share of the revenue from all your rights, without the usal revenue split between multiple agent and/or the primary publisher.

The Wittmann Agency has the pleasure of sending your works to a vibrant community of carefully-chosen, hand-selected and perfect-fit individuals (commissioning editors) and businesses (agents, publishers). In South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, P.R. China, Turkey and Bulgaria The Wittmann Agency has in addition supporting local peers.

The Wittmann Agency is always looking for new exciting titles to carry in the agency that will “complement” our current portfolio.

Your Rise & Shine Submission Process

If I like your work(s), I’ll ask you to see more material and then contact you to discuss it in detail.

If I have decided not to offer Rise & Shine global rights representation on the basis of the material you’ve sent in, I’ll reply with a brief note.

I’m unable to send detailed critiques or detailed comments because of the volume of material I receive. Comments are a huge responsibility which requires serious thought and time commitment. This is not a level of service I can offer when declining submissions.

If I say no to representing you or your work at The Wittmann Agency, it will not necessarily mean that I didn’t like the work, but I owe it to my existing clients not to become over-committed and through long-standing (20+yrs) professional experience I also have an informed eye as to what I can currently place with publishers in German-speaking territories and throughout the world.

Since I have limited space in my boutique agency, I carefully curate the works I bring in to my international & foreign rights agency.

Once I reviewed your SubmissionCard and think your work(s) would be a great fit, I will E-Mail you about setting up an agency agreement and on how I would like to proceed to the next steps.

Due to the overwhelming number of submissions, I may not be able to respond within 5 working days back to every single E-Mail but I do try. 

However, I do take this process very seriously and review every submission by E-Mail. I can no longer accept submissions by post – these will not be considered or returned.

I look forward to hearing about your exciting ideas!!!

Thank you again for your interest in The Wittmann Agency. I really look forward to hearing from you and seeing your inspiring works!
