Frankfurt Book Fair Happenings

With The Frankfurt Book Fair just around the corner, we wanted to take this opportunity to get excited about all the great things PubMatch has going on at Frankfurt this year! Rights Catalogs Done Easy: Even before you get onsite in Frankfurt, you’ll probably be thinking about the rights catalogs you’ll need to bring and the follow up you’ll have to do.  Well, we’ve been thinking the same way, so we’ve been working hard to revamp our catalog generation tool! Premium PubMatch members can make as many catalogs as they want right from their PubMatch profile, and now they...

How Many of you Are There?

About a week ago, we returned from the Frankfurt Book Fair, the largest and most active book fair in the world.  When we refer to the “activity” of a book fair, it’s in part referencing the traffic on the show floor, the number of people attending, the number of conversations had, etc.  But for a fair like Frankfurt, one of the biggest gauges for activity is the  number of rights transactions taking place.  A rights transaction refers to the signing of a contract from a rights holder (or representative of the rights holder) to a buyer who is purchasing the right to translate,...

Rights Catalog on Your Website

PubMatch’s Rights Catalog Creation Tool is one of the most popular tools on PubMatch.  Simply put, people have told us that the tool has saved them literally days of work–whether while prepping for a major book fair, or recapping information from a meeting–the ability to have a formatted way to send title data has been more than well received.  When you create a catalog on PubMatch, it’s a great way to share information with other PubMatch members, or with anybody who will eventually receive a copy of the rights catalog.  However, it occurred to us that pre-arranged meetings,...

New Partnership with Alliance of Independent Authors

We are very excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the Alliance of Independent Authors from the UK to make PubMatch available to their members!  ALLi as they’re known has developed a reputation as a great resource for authors who have published and  who want to publish, and PubMatch is a natural fit for their members.  We first met ALLi a the recent BookExpo America, and discussed all of the synergies we could forge together, and I think it’s fair to say this is just the start.  We look forward to a great relationship with ALLi’s authors and their entire...
