Fremantle Press says ‘¡Hola!’ to new markets
A selection of Fremantle Press titles are set to reach new audiences following recent rights acquisitions by two Spanish publishers.
Barcelona-based Editorial Yulca has purchased the rights to Alan Carter’s award-winning debut crime thriller Prime Cut, while BiraBiro Editorial has snapped up five titles in Ken Spillman and Chris Nixon’s Jake series.
Fremantle Press CEO Jane Fraser said the development was a credit to Fremantle Press’s Spanish agent, Nadia Bettini, and to the quality of the books.
‘We have a fantastic agent working very hard for us in Spain who really knows how to match each publisher with the right book,’ she said.
Fraser said the recent acquisitions of Carter’s and Spillman’s works marked the beginning of two exciting new partnerships.
‘Editorial Yulca specialises in non-fiction but this year branched out into novels and thrillers, whereas BiraBiro Editorial is a new children’s publisher. My hope now is that they will come to us for more of our wonderful publications,’ said Fraser.
