Literary Agencies

Publisher Toby Mundy

We are expanding our literary agency service. After a year of working with Toby Mundy Associates (TMA), and achieving success for a number of our Professional Members, we wish to expand this service to set up an acency panel.

We’re Indie. Why Use A Literary Agent?

It is challenging for an indie author to acquire the knowledge of international territories and publishing houses required to handle their own translation, TV and film, and other publishing rights, on top of everything else. That’s not to say they can’t, many already do, but Professional ALLi members who are interested can have their books read and assessed for rights potential, on a non-exclusive basis by Toby Mundy of Toby Mundy Associates (TMA), London and, soon, others.

What Are Publishing Rights?

How Authors Sell Publishing Rights Alliance of Independent Authors

If the arena of licensing rights is new to you, ALLi explains all in our guidebook for authors who want to know how to license publishing rights (due February 2016). Like all our guides, it is free to members.

I Haven’t Sold That Many Books Yet. What About Me?

ALLi also has an arrangement with two of the largest, and most active, rights selling platforms: IPR License and Pubmatch. More details here.

Can I talk to Other Professional Members About Their Experience?

Certainly. Are you a member of our closed forum for professional members?

If you’d like to be included in the ALLi rights guide and have sold more than 50,000 books or equivalent KU reads, fill this form. We will be in touch if contacted by a rights buyer.
