What Are Subsidiary Rights? And Why You Should Exercise Them

Subsidiary rights refer to transforming your book into other media formats. For example, turning your books into translations, audiobooks, or a movie/television show. Exercising the subsidiary rights for your books is a great way to gain more of an audience!

And that’s where we come in! Hershman Rights Management is a literary agency focused on helping authors branch out into other markets, more specifically foreign, audio, and motion picture. We want to help your book reach new heights! 

Now, here’s a little on how that works…

We represent; indie and traditionally published authors, writers who aren’t yet published, and publishers without in-house subsidiary rights specialists. If you have a book that is already published that you would like to seek representation on, you can send us a submission right from our website with our unique instant approval process. We would love to take a look!

You can also use our contact page to ask any questions.

We have a wide author selection with a variety in genres. And have helped translate books into German, Italian, Polish, French, and much more! 

Some of the audiobook publishing companies we work with include: Tantor, Dreamscape, Podium Publishing, Brilliance Audio, W.F Howes, Audible, and MMB Media!

A notable film project we have is Hallmark Channel’s “The Christmas Club” based on the book of the same title by Barbara Hinske.

In the traditional publishing sphere, we work with Thomas & Mercer (Amazon Publishing) to bring the ZOE BENTLEY series by Mike Omer to life- as just one example. 

We have many new projects in the works, and we can’t wait to share them with you soon!

Take a look at what we do! And start thinking about your subsidiary rights!

Zoe Bentley Mystery Series Book 3!

The chilling conclusion to The Zoe Bentley Mystery Series has finally arrived! Get your copy today in print, audio, or on kindle. There’s something for everybody! Amazon Charts bestselling author Mike Omer creates a way for readers to understand the mind of a killer. If thrillers are your go to read then put this one on your list!

About the Book

A murderer who drinks his victim’s blood? FBI profiler Zoe Bentley and Agent Tatum Gray thought they’d seen it all, but this young woman’s barbaric murder is especially hard to stomach.

They didn’t expect to work this case. But vampirism aside, the murderer’s MO is identical to that of Rod Glover – the serial killer who’s been pursuing Zoe since childhood. Forensics reveals the murder to be his work, but not his alone; desperate to fulfill his sick purpose, he has taken on an equally depraved partner.

Zoe’s own frustration grows after another woman turns up dead and drained – and another goes missing. Time is running out: Zoe knows her own death will be the climax of Glover’s sinister play, which has been unfolding for twenty years. To stop Glover and his vile partner, she’ll need to plunge deep into their motives; but this means drawing ever closer to becoming another casualty of a dark, dark thirst.

Happy Reading!

Publishing Trends of 2020

It is best to tackle the future with some indication of what is most likely to be on trend. While no one can truly predict the future here is some of the industry’s best interpretation of what 2020 will bring!

  1. Audiobooks will continue to gain popularity, and more indie authors will seek to have their work converted to this format.
  2. Running ads will be a requirement
    1. Getting your books in front of readers for free will be more difficult. Now is the time to get internet savvy and use paid advertising!
  3. The ebook market will grow even more in 2020.
    1. As more young readers enter the market ebooks will increase.
  4. Email lists will increase in value.
    1. Your emailing list is a valuable marketing tool. Remember readers who are giving you their email are opting in, they want you to email them!

These are just a few publishing trends that we might see in 2020, but there are definitely more! A big takeaway is the push toward alternatives to paperbacks, with the focus on audiobooks and ebooks, as well as upping the ante on marketing!

Have a great 2020!
