What I Didn’t Know | August 6, 2019

Contributed by Kaitlin Loss, (ECC Chair) Subsidiary Rights Associate, HarperCollins Children's Books

When I first started in publishing, I didn’t realize how important it was to not only know your company’s frontlist, but backlist as well. This is vital in subrights, especially in regards to permissions and translation licensing. But even for other departments, it’s helpful for eyeing potential repackages, seasonal promotions, comp titles, etc. It’s also one of the best ways to really get a handle on who your company is: where it’s been, what it’s done, and where it’s going.
