Foreign Rights

I’m dedicated to helping you with your most valuable assets – the rights to your literary works.

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

“Claudia, THANKS! You are the perfect example of an agent! I can tell you without question that your free Monday eNewsletters and E-Mails alone are so exact and straight to-the-point that they provide more REAL value than all the other empty-promise, we’ve all paid for. I’m a fan and I can’t help but to admire you.”

RISE & SHINE Representation

Perfect for:  You want to create a profitable foreign right licensing business around your books but know yourself well enough to hesitate before jumping in and would love an expert at your side to help you. You have an idea about what you want and looking to offer and sell translation rights globally to your book(s) after your book(s) have a primary publisher and want to work with a pro who’s been there.


Is this you?


Do you want to place your book(s) in front of thousands of international prospects?

You wish to reach into international book publishing markets but you have little or no knowledge in those international markets?

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

You believe there should be translation interest in your book(s) and your current approach doesn’t seem to be getting your book(s) in front of the right people.


I’m always looking for extraordinary, exciting and new books but since I have limited space in my boutique agency, I carefully curate the works I bring into my The Wittmann Agency.

The Wittmann Agency commission for successfully ratified contracts and all remunerations resulting, therefore e.g. advance payments, subsequent royalties, fees per contract is 25% of the nominal sum.
