May Program: Subsidiary Rights

Foreign rights sales, audio book rights sales, film and TV rights sales, and other subsidiary rights sales can be an excellent source of revenue, but also a great marketing tool.

In this program we will focus on how to set up and maintain an efficient and profitable subsidiary rights program (including tips about participating in international book fairs, using subagents, mailing overseas, and using online resources). We will also devote some time to digital rights, what they are, who are the players, and how to go about setting up good digital content distribution channels. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

MARÍA JESÚS AGUILÓ, a native of Spain, moved to California in 1993 after completing a professional publishing course at the University of Barcelona and an internship with Antonia Kerrigan Literary Agency. In 1996 she joined Berrett-Koehler Publishers, where she is in charge of their international sales and subsidiary rights program. She attends several international book fairs a year, including Frankfurt, London, Guadalajara and Beijing, and over the years has negotiated and signed over 1,000 subsidiary rights contracts.
