How Do Publishing Houses Handle Subsidiary Rights? - podcast

Understanding the sale of your book rights is critical. In this interview, Judy Klein, rights consultant, reviews the way subsidiary rights in publishing work, and how publishers keep up on trends. At a publishing house, there is a department devoted to subsidiary rights and foreign rights. It's the job of the directors and managers in that department to keep their lines of communication open with the rest of the industry, including other publishing companies, magazine editors, movie scouts, and foreign publishers. They work with agencies to stay informed about what is coming out, what books are getting reviews, and what is selling. There are always trends, and the publishers want to keep on top of that. So, people in subrights travel to conferences and large conventions all over the world. If you’ve signed a contract with an agent or publisher, you should give them any information you have that might help sell your book's subsidiary rights.
