What is the role of a corresponding agent?
A corresponding agent presents titles to local publishers who he or she knows well, negotiates purchases and checks reports and revenues. The corresponding agent is thoroughly familiar with the market and territory you want to penetrate and knows the best publishers to approach and those to avoid.
Why should I outsource the sale of foreign rights?
Corresponding agents are paid strictly on a commission basis, so there’s no overhead for you. Also, since the agent is based abroad, they are thoroughly familiar with the market and territory you want to penetrate and know the best publishers to approach and those to avoid.
Why target the Quebec market?
Sometimes the content of a book is of interest only to a North American audience and is not exportable to Europe. In such cases, Canada’s French-speaking province of Quebec is a golden opportunity you don’t want to miss.
