Foreign rights

We represent our authors at major international book fairs around the world and make regular selling trips to the US and Europe

For all territories excluding Japan and Korea, translation rights are handled by Louisa Pritchard at Louisa Pritchard Associates. In Japan our titles are represented by the English Agency (Japan), and in Korea by the Duran Kim Agency. Any commission charged by subagents and co-agents is paid by our agency.

To find out in which territories our titles are already sold, please check the rights information given on the relevant author pages. Alternatively, you can contact us via our info email to request a PDF of our latest rights list. For rights enquiries, contact Louisa Pritchard at Louisa Pritchard Associates, who handles translation rights in most of our titles (excluding Japanese and Korean).

Film and television

We track all aspects of the commercial exploitation of your project including film and television rights. We liaise closely with radio and television producers as well as a select number of film and television agents. We also revert rights where the licensee is no longer exploiting them


If you wish to quote from our authors' work you must apply for formal permission to do so. You will need to supply us with full details of the extract you wish to use, including the number of words, the title of the volume in which it originally appeared and the name of the original publisher, as well as information about your own publication, including the title, publisher, price, size of print run and territory in which it will be published. Please also let us know the fee you are proposing.

You may apply via our info email.

We respond to permission requests as quickly as we can but we may not be able to give you an immediate response. If you have a deadline to meet, you should therefore make sure you apply in good time.

The fees we charge for the use of our authors' work are based on a standard scale approved by the Society of Authors. The level of fee will vary depending on a number of factors, including the length of the piece, the territory in which you wish to publish and the size of your print run. Payment should be made on publication of the work in which the quotation appears.
