You are a big-hearted publishing pro and proprietor with an established business and wish to seamlessly expand beyond your core business into international media rights licensing with specialized support for your business.


Is this you?


Would you like your portfolio to go international, but you're not sure how to take it to the next level?

Do you consider foreign rights sales as an integral part of your marketing strategy?

Do you wish to reach into international markets for your authors but you have little or no knowledge in those international markets?

You believe there should be translation interest in your books and your current approach doesn't seem to be getting your books in front of the right people?

You wish to start in foreign rights or maximise your rights sale potential and looking to go beyond cookie cutter advice?

Does your publishing house receive licensing requests and wish to have these professionally processed?

You don't have an in-house rights department, lack of resources or don't want to rely on a scattered network of different subagents in every territory?

Are you running out of ideas and out of time to get your foreign rights business off the ground?

You are juggling every single aspect on your own as a publisher, including sales, marketing, growth, acquisition, pre-press – and need a trusted ally and first-go-to-resource for your foreign rights?

Do you need help with author and licensing contracts or lack of a safe foreign rights publishing contract?


We at The Wittmann Agency listen carefully to your needs and concerns and offer creative, out-of-the-box and custom-tailored solutions for your unique situation with a fast turn-around time so you can focus on your own business.

She’s smart, insightful, and serves from the heart. And combined with online marketing, social media, etc. to achieve it…it’s a powerful synthesis. I knew that working with Claudia was going to be worth way more than the investment.tl_files/twa_files/images/SocialMedia_Press/quotes.png

Working in International Book Publishing


Are you overwhelmed with marketing your modern publishing business?

One thing I see a lot of people do in publishing is to try to use only free tools, software, apps and platforms – and often that can cost you more in time (and money) and in the worst case, it may have the potential to destroy your entire business, when platforms or service provider disappear overnight.

That's why I've created The Wittmann Agency Handbook 25 Tools and Services That Publishing Professionals Can Trust.

 This easy-to-read guide covers the critical parts of your daily publishing business.

I promise you the very real fear that you might just forget the most important things and screw up your publishing adventure will disappear.
