Subrights Management

Bookcase is dedicated to selling foreign rights for our authors as widely as possible. Our agents are fixtures at the Frankfurt Book Fair, The London Book Fair, Bologna Book Fair, and we travel extensively to maintain our relationships with foreign publishers. Our team is also committed to making the most of our clients' audio rights and represents film & television rights for select projects.

Bookcase Literary Agency is open to submissions from independent and traditionally published authors who are looking for help managing their subrights.
