Selling rights and book fairs—all you need to know for London and Frankfurt
How do you sell rights for your books in other languages? What about other territories? What are the advantages of attending book fairs in London and Frankfurt and how should you prepare?
These are just some of the questions that Ivan O’Brien, Managing Director of The O’Brien Press and Chair of Dublin Book Festival will answer, in an online course hosted by Publishing Ireland on Wednesday April 05, 10.00am – 12:00pm.
The O’Brien Press has been trading rights for over 40 years, and there is nobody better experienced that Ivan O’Brien to talk abut the process, the players, the opportunities—and the traps to avoid in the world of rights trading.
The London Book Fair (18-20 April) and The Frankfurt Book Fair are exceptional opportunities to form great publishing relationships internationally, and an enjoyable way to bring Irish books onto the world stage.
With dozens of book fairs under his belt, Ivan O’Brien gives some valuable insight and the inside track on what to expect, and how to prepare.
