Licensing and Rights

Negotiating the world of licensing and rights management can be a daunting prospect for many authors. There are publishing rights, translations rights, audio rights, film and television rights, regional and world-wide rights. It isnít always easy to navigate them all on your own, which is why we partnered with IPR License Ė the first global marketplace for book rights. They provide a cost-effective and efficient way of offering translation rights and other rights to publishers and agents worldwide.

IPR License maintains a full-searchable database and sends monthly bulletins showcasing titles with available rights to thousands of publisher and agent subscribers, all of whom are actively looking for rights acquisitions in various genres. If a publisher or agent is interested in your book, they can contact you directly through the IPR License website.

Success Story

SilverWood author Tru Spencer's book wasn't even published, yet IPR License was setting up opportunities for her after she registered her manuscript. First, Twin Stars and a Mother From Mars was selected as one of only 5 titles to go forward for the Agent's Pick with the Andrew Lownie Literary Agency. She was eventually a runner up, and rights to Twin Stars were offered to IPR's thousands of agent and publisher subscribers. Next, Tru was offered the opportunity to have her book showcased at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2013. Frankfurt is the world's largest book fair and a centre point for rights licensing.

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”
