Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2005
World Ahead Publishing, the West CoastÂs premier publisher of right-of-center books, is pleased to announce it has partnered with two of the countryÂs leading rights agents to handle its domestic and overseas rights sales.
ÂIn this competitive marketplace, you need to work with the best,Â notes World Ahead founder and president Eric M. Jackson. ÂThatÂs why weÂre thrilled to have Anu Hansen and Alexander Hoyt on board. TheyÂll be key players as we grow our list of provocative and entertaining political and non-fiction titles.Â
Anu Hansen, formerly with HarperCollins and International-Thompson Publishing, is now president of ATMARR Services, a foreign rights agency that represents clients including San Francisco-based neoconservative publisher Encounter Books. As World AheadÂs foreign rights representative, Hansen will be responsible for representing the companyÂs titles to the attention of overseas publishers and distributors.
World AheadÂs new domestic rights agency is Alexander Hoyt Associates, the well respected firm that also represents well-known conservative thinkers such as Brent Bozell and Stan Kurtz. Alexander Hoyt is also the domestic rights agent for Washington, DC-based conservative imprint Regnery Publishing.
Although only a year old, World Ahead is already making a splash in the publishing world. The companyÂs nonfiction books include ÂThe PayPal Wars: Battles with eBay, the Media, the Mafia, and the Rest of Planet EarthÂ - a chronicle of Internet giant PayPalÂs pro-free market origins - and the controversial new release ÂTheir Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton MachineÂ - a revealing look at Bill and Hillary ClintonÂs use of strong-armed tactics to intimidate the women who got in their way.
In August, the company will debut a new childrenÂs imprint called Kids Ahead intended to counter the deluge of liberal books intended for AmericaÂs youth. The imprintÂs first title is an illustrated book called ÂHelp! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed.Â
ÂIn this business, experience counts,Â says Jackson, Âand weÂre confident that Anu and Alexander will be instrumental in World AheadÂs continued growth and success.Â
