Finding an English-language publisher is only the first step for our authors. Next, we look to build our clients’ international profiles and increase their income by selling their work to be translated around the world.
Our foreign rights are handled by our sister company Rights People – a dedicated and innovative rights-selling team of highly experienced industry professionals: Charlotte Bodman, Alexandra Devlin, Amy Threadgold, Harim Yim, Claudia Galluzzi, Jodie O’Toole, and Hannah Whitaker.
Rights People offers a one-stop shop for rights sales around the world. They sell directly to publishers in all territories except China, Japan, and Russia, and their sales approach is a personal one. They find the best home for every book they represent and provide a comprehensive service to all our clients, including contracts, cash collection, and royalty reporting. Rights People’s cohesive approach enables the creation of an overall strategy aimed at maximizing the potential of every Greenhouse title.
Since the launch of the business in early 2006, Rights People has closed deals with a huge number of publishers in more than 30 countries. The team attends the Frankfurt, Bologna, New York, Beijing, and London book fairs. They create a rights catalogue twice a year and are regular speakers on issues connected with translation and rights selling. For more on Rights People visit: rightspeople.com
Film and TV
There’s no substitute for personal passion and individual commitment when selling books, so rather than partnering exclusively with one agent or agency for film and TV rights, we have close relationships with a select group of the best LA-based agents in the business, as well as direct relationships with other key players in the US and UK film/TV industries. With both large corporate agencies and smaller boutique businesses represented, we are able to give first look at projects to a range of agents with diverse tastes and contacts. We can’t promise our clients that their books will be picked up for film or TV, but we can promise that their work will be pitched to potential co-agents in Los Angeles who have proven track records in selling adaptation rights for film and television.
