Selling the rights to your books can be a lucrative business, putting local versions of your books in the hands of readers all around the world. With [email protected] powered by RightsLink, you can make your book's rights available for sale from your PubMatch profile, allowing buyers to purchase rights based on your terms, growing your income streams, and in many cases, creating new income streams!
The process to detail your rights is simple:
Create multipliers for different formats and contract lengths. The multipliers will tell the system to increase the amount you'll receive for a specific format or length. For example, if you value hardcover twice as much as paperback, put "1" for paperback and "2" for hardcover. To negotiate each deal as it comes, put the letter "M" instead of a number. Putting the letter M means you'll be contacted with the potential buyer's information. After researching the potential buyer, then you'll be able to assign a price and complete the contract
Once you've created your multipliers, you'll be able to detail individual rights available for individual titles or groups of titles that have all the same rights available. Choose the language, exclusivity, territory, formats available (choose one or all), contract lengths available (choose one option or many), and other contract terms like print run and royalty percentage The base price you assign will be your minimum price (or your multiplier of 1) and will go up based on your multipliers and what formats you've made available
Your rights will be available for sale within 48 hours and you can start selling immediately after they're live!
