How It Works:
- At each show, your book will be assigned a number, either based on its Dewey Decimal subject category at library shows, or based on where it lies alphabetically by publisher at international venues.
- Your book will be displayed along with other titles in a prime position on the exhibit floor.
- Your book will be displayed face-out on the shelf.
- A sticker bearing a unique QR code will be placed on the lower left hand side of the cover of the books that will be displayed. Book fair attendees can then scan the code using the CBE Book Fair Buddy app to learn more about your book. Using the app, they can add your book to their to-be-read list, share that with friends, family, or on their social media pages and even get connected to a variety of reseller sites where they can purchase your book.
Negotiating international rights for the years of hard work you have carried out is no easy feat. PubMatch.com simplifies this process and helps you connect with agents and publishers alike.
Once logged in, you can search for publishers looking for new titles or agents seeking authors to represent. There’s even an internal messaging system that permits member to member messaging, but you can dictate which type of member can contact you by controlling your privacy settings. To showcase your talent and draw attention, you can also add your books to your profile.
Prior to the book fairs, you can specify which international book shows your book will be exhibited at, and send members an online rights catalogue to initialize the rights transaction process.
