About the Program:
Publishers of all sizes can benefit from broadening their perspective on what it means to “publish” by looking beyond the standard channels of print and eBook sales to distributors, bookstores, and consumers. Licensing rights to parts of your books – or indeed licensing the whole book - to audio publishers and distributors, to digital course providers, and to publishers around the world who translate books into their local languages, can be a source of additional promotion and income. This webinar will cover:
- Do your books ‘work’ for other formats and markets?
- Who to pitch and how.
- Why do this, AKA the joy of working with others
- The art of negotiation.
- Contracts and royalties and record keeping.
- Tools and timing.
Publishers will walk away with new rights licensing goals and strategies to achieve them.
