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 of 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 in to my The Wittmann Agency.
