ALLi is delighted to announce a new arrangement with PubMatch, the international book rights network.
The deal means ALLi Author Members will be able to access the premium range of PubMatch membership services at a discounted rate of just $9.99 annually (usual cost, $79.99).
A partnership between Publishers Weekly and The Combined Book Exhibit, PubMatch is a new initiative, aiming to connect publishers, authors and agents worldwide to strike rights deals. The idea is that it brings the connections and atmosphere of a book fair to a global, year-round accessible platform and ALLi hopes the integrated portal will give author-publishers crucial exposure and support in the international and subsidiary rights arena.
We're always looking to bring tools and organisations that benefit indie authors to our members and selling international and sub rights is a challenge for all but the biggest of indie bestsellers.
Yet we know there are many small presses all over the world who are interesting in author-published work. We hope this service will allow our members to take hold of the international rights scene in a new way, to reach out to agents and publishers abroad and to receive alerts about potential buyers for their book rights.
Welcoming the partnership, Seth Dellon of Pubmatch said: “We're excited to work with another independent author group. We've created a program specifically for ALLi.”
The service also allowsus to put together a rights catalogue of all ALLi members’ books, which can be taken to book fairs and other salient events. Wherever we go, an up-to-date rights catalogue will go with us.
The link with Pubmatch supplements our existing arrangement with London-based literary agency, AM Heath, who will continue to offer representation to selected ALLi members. (If you'd like to submit your work to Jennifer for consideration, the details are here: https://selfpublishingadvice.org/independent-authors-rights-agent)
Available to Author & Professional Members of The Alliance only, the service will commence in August 2013. We will be emailing all members shortly with full details.
This is one of many discounted deals that ALLi offers members. See the membership zone for further details.
Hi Maggie, A letter is going out next week and we’ll be highlighting the details here on the blog too.
Great news and another avenue for us indie authors – thank you for sharing this!
You’re welcome, Kim. Hope the sun shines in France!
Just to alert you that the Authors right agency address (at the end) does not link to a relevant page.
Thank you for negotiating a Pub Match deal. I have a feeling I signed up with Pubmatch before the LBF..but no idea for how long!
Hi Philippa, the link seems to work okay from this end. It’s to another blog post that tells you how to submit work to Jennifer? Congratulations by the way on your new book and article in The Bookseller. Look forward to reading it. There’s a conversation about it on the member-only Facebook page that you might want to join in! 🙂
This is great news. I’ll definitely be researching this further. Thank you for pursuing programs like this for indie authors.
Our pleasure Java. You have to be an ALLi member though to avail of the offer.
