Wholesale Contracts from London
International Titles brought back wholesale contract offers from the 2011 London Fair in the areas of Art; Business/Management; Health; History/International Affairs; Philosophy; and Science.
This was not a particularly good year for London compared to the 2010 Frankfurt, for example, from which we returned with distribution offers for books in the areas of: Animal Memoirs; Business; Current Affairs; Fantasy; Health; History; Literary Criticism; Mathematics; Memoirs; New Age & Metaphysical; Parenting; Philosophy; Photography; Religion and Spiritual; Self-Help and Travel.
We posted this information here in order to give you some idea as to genres at which buyers have been looking recently.
Sales of rights are wholly different matter and spread across all genres.
Also: the book business is very much cyclical. Some genres attract buyer interest for a few fairs, then recede, only to become popular again after a few more fairs. As a rule of thumb: a well-written book almost always finds interest.
