Your Title Database Just Got Better!

One of our goals at PubMatch, in addition to keeping you connected with other professionals in the industry, has always been to provide you with your own title database, available at your fingertips.  We know that when you’re at a book fair, you might have not the display copies of every book that might come up in conversation–and particularly what rights you do and don’t own for that specific title.  We never want you to miss an opportunity to move forward with a discussion that could lead to a sale.  As a result, we’re always working to improve–and add tools...

We’ve Upgraded Our Rights Reporting Capabilities

Part of knowing what rights you own–so you can sell them–is knowing what rights you don’t own.  But sometimes all of that information exists in the ether rather than in your database.  So we’ve decided to upgrade the type of information you can include in your PubMatch profile for rights you’ve already sold, so you can have that information at your fingertips at all times When adding or editing a title to your PubMatch databse, if you choose to enter rights not available, you’ll now be able to detail the language, territory and formats sold, who they’ve been...

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,...
