Boy oh boy do we have audiobooks for you! This is my favorite time of the month, when we can do an audiobook round up for you! Just when you think you’ve reached the end, there’s more! So make sure you keep scrolling!
We have a great assortment, so whatever kinds of genres you’re into I’m sure will be here. Let us know if you’ve read any of these already!
Subsidiary rights refer to transforming your book into other media formats. For example, turning your books into translations, audiobooks, or a movie/television show. Exercising the subsidiary rights for your books is a great way to gain more of an audience!
And that’s where we come in! Hershman Rights Management is a literary agency focused on helping authors branch out into other markets, more specifically foreign, audio, and motion picture. We want to help your book reach new heights!
Now, here’s a little on how that works…
We represent; indie and traditionally published authors, writers who aren’t yet published, and publishers without in-house subsidiary rights specialists. If you have a book that is already published that you would like to seek representation on, you can send us a submission right from our website with our unique instant approval process. We would love to take a look!
You can also use our contact page to ask any questions.
We have a wide author selection with a variety in genres. And have helped translate books into German, Italian, Polish, French, and much more!
Some of the audiobook publishing companies we work with include: Tantor, Dreamscape, Podium Publishing, Brilliance Audio, W.F Howes, Audible, and MMB Media!
A notable film project we have is Hallmark Channel’s “The Christmas Club” based on the book of the same title by Barbara Hinske.
In the traditional publishing sphere, we work with Thomas & Mercer (Amazon Publishing) to bring the ZOE BENTLEY series by Mike Omer to life- as just one example.
We have many new projects in the works, and we can’t wait to share them with you soon!
Take a look at what we do! And start thinking about your subsidiary rights!

Now until May 23 Rescuing Broken by Gina Azzi will be 90% off on chirp books.
Seven years ago, Jaxon Kane enlisted in the army and shattered my heart. Now, he’s back.
Except too much has changed while he was gone. The spirited, passionate girl he first fell in love with no longer exists. I live as a shadow of my former self, a shell of damaged dreams and unfulfilled potential. Too broken for second chances, too broken for him, I cling to my dark secret. I’ll hide the truth from Jax no matter the cost.
But Jax is a hot, confident, and fearless soldier. He may carry around old hurts and wear new scars but at his core, he’s a fighter. I just wish he wasn’t fighting for me. Or my heart.
Genre: Military Romance
Run Time: 7 hours 49 minutes
“Oh my..this book made my heart clench, made me tear up, and made me believe in second chances with your one true love! Once I started Rescuing Broken I had a heck of a time putting it down. The storyline pulled me in and HARD. I found it to be sweet, beautiful, heart breaking, and wonderfully, sweetly romantic.” – Marie

We’re going to sum everything up: the APA (Audio Publishers Association) reported the rise in audiobook sales in 2018 being 24.5%!
According to Publisher’s Weekly, this is a more accurate percentage. It’s accounting for sales receipts rather than estimated sales. Over 91% of audiobook sales are coming from a digital format…we’ve entered the digital age! Kidding, we’ve been living in it for quite some time now!
The more popular genres include general fiction, mysteries/thrillers/suspense, and sci-fi/fantasy. Nonfiction sales have risen and represent 32.7% of units sold in 2018; starting with general nonfiction, history/biography/memoir, and self-help.
The age group dominating a little over 91% of sales are adults. Young adult titles increased by double digits and audiobooks geared for children rose moderately.
Production of audio has risen 5.8% from 2017!
