Negotiating international rights for the years of hard work you have carried out is no easy feat – simplifies these processes, as well as assisting with communication amongst agents and publishers alike. With the simplicity to search for publishers looking for new titles, or agents seeking new authors, you will find yourself engaged in no time and on the right track to success.

An internal messaging system permits member to member messaging with the ability to dictate which type of member can contact you by controlling your privacy settings. Adding titles to your profile exposes your talent whilst drawing attention to those you would like to hear from.

  • Your book will be displayed along with other titles in a prime position on the exhibit floor.
  • Your book will be displayed face-out on the shelf.
