Want to boost your Sales? Who doesn’t. In this panel session recorded live in the author HQ at London Book Fair, director Orna Ross interviews two bestselling indie authors and sales gurus, Mark Dawson and Joanna Penn, together with ALLi’s literary agent Toby Mundy about how to go beyond selling e-books in your home territory.
“How Authors Sell Publishing Rights”, from The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), helps authors navigate today’s complex rights marketplace. It shows writers the best ways to reach decision-makers in various industries, what these rights-buyers are looking for, and what to expect in negotiating a license or sale of rights.
It covers how to pitch, negotiate and close a sale with producers, literary agents and global publishing houses, how to manage book fairs and other sales trips, and how to keep track of your rights business. “How Authors Sell Publishing Rights” shows how the publishing landscape for authors is transforming and yielding unprecedented opportunities.
