Subsidiary Considerations: Serial Rights - podcast

Serial rights for books are a special kind of subsidiary right with a unique audience. Agent and rights expert Judy Klein explains selling serial rights and trends in serial rights. Magazines and newspapers often buy serial rights to a book and publish excerpts, which they usually do before the books come out. There used to be a lot of small magazines that specialized in fiction or particular kinds of nonfiction. There are far fewer of them now, because information has moved to the internet. It used to be that you could sell five pieces from a book to a newspaper, and they would run it across several editions. It’s harder to do that now, but serial rights are still a vital, growing market.
