About HRM


Sarah Hershman, Manager

Sarah is the manager of Hershman Rights Management (HRM), a licensing literary agency created to work with authors and publishers to maximize the usage of their subsidiary rights. Prior to HRM, Sarah acquired audio rights for Tantor Media as a Senior Acquisitions Editor. During her time at Tantor, she selected hundreds of titles to turn into audiobooks. On a daily basis she read through submissions from literary agents, publishers, and self published authors to determine if their books or concepts would sell well. In order to do her job effectively, she needed to keep up with the current publishing trends, understand what readers are demanding at that moment, and what they will be demanding months/years down the road. Sarah founded HRM so she could share her knowledge with others.



Bree Currier, Acquisitions Associate

Bree Currier graduated from Smith College with a degree in Government and Book Studies. Previously, she worked at an academic press and an independent bookstore.


Tania Yvette Rivera, Marketing Associate

Tania Yvette Rivera attended the University of Connecticut, where she majored in English Literature and Latino/a Studies. Since graduating, she had the honor of interning with a literary agency, along with a publishing house.


This blog was created with the hope that it will help to bring your writing to life and to discuss all things related to publishing, reading, and writing. Write on.
