12 new represented publishers!

It is with great enthusiasm that our agency proudly announces that we are fully committed since last October to assuring the representation of twelve new French Canadian publishers.  These publishers choose our services after we conducted a promotional campaign in preparation for the last Frankfurt International Book Fair. Our network of 20 dedicated corresponding agents established in their respective countries is deploying its efforts in order to submit evaluation copies of our represented titles to trusted foreign publishers who present the most potential in regards to rights acquisition. Many of these titles were exhibited on our stand in Frankfurt, which was a great added value, allowing foreign publishers and corresponding agents to view the titles on site and discuss acquisition possibilities. Here are the twelve publishers who choose to benefit from our expertise and our network of contacts in order to increase their sales: Les Éditions Marchand de feuilles  www.marchanddefeuilles.com Louise Courteau  www.louisecourteau.com Les Éditeurs Réunis  www.lesediteursreunis.com Marcel Broquet  www.marcelbroquet.com Les Éditions Dédicaces  www.dedicaces.ca Les Presses internationales Polytechniques  www.polymtl.ca/pub Éditions Blackburn Tétreault  www.blackburntetreault.com/nos-publications Éditions Pratiko – DLL Presse  www.pratiko.ca Boomerang  www.boomerangjeunesse.com Les Éditions du Soleil de minuit www.editions-soleildeminuit.com Les Éditions Z’Ailées  zailees.com At this list we can add Les Éditions La Presse, that we already had the privilege to represent since last year: Éditions La Presse  librairie.cyberpresse.ca We thank them for their trust and are confident that 2012 will bring us many success!
