April 8, 2011 - PRLog -- BookExpo America and Publish on Demand Global are sponsoring a 1-hour webinar at 12 noon EST (9 a.m. PST) on Wednesday, April 20 for authors and publishers titled:

Selling Foreign Rights: Landing Lucrative International Editions of Your Print or E-books to Improve Your Bottom Line and to Expand Your Reach as an Author or Publisher.

The webinar begins with a half-hour presentation by Dr. Jan Yager on Foreign Rights Dos and Don’ts, and is followed by a half-hour focus on selling foreign rights to China and Taiwan presented by Wendy King of the Big Apple Agency.

This 1-hour webinar covers the crucial information you need to know about selling (or buying) foreign rights today as well as how to make deals in one of the hottest foreign markets – the Chinese language – which includes mainland China or Taiwan, for which there are two separate sales (and there are two versions of Chinese, simplified or complex).

Designed as a succinct but intensive session in foreign rights for the new or seasoned author or publisher, and as a refresher for those who know foreign rights basics, this webinar will help you jumpstart your foreign rights efforts by providing you with expert advice from two top foreign rights professionals.

The webinar will be presented by Dr. Jan Yager, foreign rights manager and author of 30 books in 25 languages, including Foreign Rights and Wrongs: Selling or Buying Print or Digital Literary Rights Around the World (forthcoming, Hannacroix Creek Books, Inc., 2011); and Wendy King of the Big Apple Agency, a major Asian literary agency with offices in Taipei/Taiwan, Beijing, and Shanghai.

This exclusive interactive webinar takes place noon to 1:15 p.m. Wednesday April 20th, Eastern Standard Time, and includes a 15-minute Q&A at the end. Cost is $25.
