Adult Rights

About Us 

The Pan Macmillan Adult Rights Department are responsible for licensing rights across all of the adult publishing division, which includes the imprints of Macmillan, Pan, Picador, Bluebird, One Boat, Mantle, Tor and Macmillan Collector’s Library. 

Our team of rights professionals is drawn from a variety of publishing backgrounds, have a wealth of licensing expertise gained from across the industry and share a passion for books of all shapes and sizes.

As part of the Holtzbrinck Publishing family, we work closely with our sister companies in New York, Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, and Stuttgart, but also with other International publishers, whether big or small, to find the right homes for our authors. We work directly with publishers in the major European and North American markets, and through a network of co-agents, with specialist local knowledge, in other selected territories throughout the rest of the world. 

We attend the major book fairs every year and make regular international sales trips to pitch titles, negotiate deals, and further develop and nurture relationships that have been established over many years.
