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!
