FAQ: For authors, publishers and agents
Q: What do you look for in a licensed book/series?
A. Three things: 1) compelling book covers, 2) a well-reviewed book and 3) an author/publisher looking to the future
Q: What kinds of audiobooks will BookTV NOT license?
A: Because of content regulations on YouTube, we cannot accept audiobooks that are inherently graphic in nature (ex. super dark horror and super randy romance).
Q: Does my work have to be exclusive to BookTV to do a licensing deal?
A: We only license the ability to use your audiobook to produce a video audiobook under a non-exclusive agreement. You can still use your audiobook rights on normal audiobook platforms.
Q: I'm a publisher. Will BookTV consider the books under our care?
A: Yes. We'd love to take a careful look at which books will be the perfect fit. Back catalogs that are making little or no income could be a perfect place to start.
Q: What does a BookTV licensing deal look like?
A: We have three tiers based on how much revenue percentage you want to keep.
