City Owl Press today announced a partnership agreement with Hershman Rights Management, LLC, a professional literary licensing agency that specializes in representing subsidiary rights, including audio rights, for authors and publishers. Their extensive list of authors include C. N. Crawford, Susan Kaye Quinn, Tracy Goodwin and numerous others.
Located in Guilford, Connecticut, Hershman Rights Agency works closely with publishers and authors to ensure that they receive the best offers and representation. The founder and owner of the agency, Sarah Hershman, offers extensive experience and connections in the world of audio rights management. She had worked for a number of years in the Acquisitions Department as a Senior Acquisitions Editor at Tantor. “Throughout her time at Tantor, Sarah selected and acquired rights for hundreds of titles to be produced into audio, some of which became award winning titles.”
“We have been very diligent and thorough about finding the best agency and agent to represent our authors’ audio media rights and feel that we have finally found the best fit for us,” said City Owl Press COO, Tina Moss.
“Our primary focus is always on growing our authors’ careers, and a large part of that is making sure that they have the best opportunities in regards to all forms of media rights, especially audio. Audio book sales have been on a steady rise in the past few years and are essential to help our authors to grow and expand. We strongly believe that Sarah and her agency will do a wonderful job of facilitating this new venue for us,” said City Owl Press CMO, Yelena Casale.
