Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency’s CEO Robert Fletcher has been interviewed in the current issue of All About Book Publishing, where he discusses his views on the globalization of the publishing industry and the upwards trend for POD and e-books. “Forget rights sold based on nations,” says Mr. Fletcher, “The new game is based on language. For example, an e-book can be sold anywhere in the world. You can license a language; you can no longer license a digital book by country. And the new model for distribution can be summed up as POD, eBook, Amazon, Apple, and Google.”

Mr. Fletcher spoke at the New Delhi World Book Fair, to market China’s upcoming 19th Beijing International Book Fair to Indian publishers. The irony of a US company selling a Chinese tradeshow to Indian businesses is not lost on Fletcher, but again, the theme of globalization emerges: “Publishers in India and from around the world know that China is the next big publishing hub. Leaders from India are already in China and new Indian entrepreneurs are looking at China very closely. We are proud to be a part of connecting the two largest publishing populations in the world.”
