Lifecycle of a Book in Translation: Kristin Harmel, Author and Holly Root, Original Rights Holder

Two and a half years ago, Publishing Trendsetter launched an infographic called Lifecycle of a Book, which showed the process of publishing a book, from inception to final product. The infographic also came with accompanying videos of young professionals from each department talking about what they do and how they do it. We learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and hope you did too.

We have rebooted the Lifecycle of a Book series and are thrilled to post our newest incarnation: Lifecycle of a Book in Translation, showing how a book published in one country is then published in another. To celebrate, we’ll be highlighting videos from publishing professionals at each step of the infographic, every day this week. (If you can’t wait to watch all of the videos, you can visit our dedicated page to watch them all.)

Before we begin our journey through the Lifecycle of a Book in Translation, we must thank those who have made this project possible: Elisabeth Watson, who came up with this project to begin with; Marleen Seegers who advised on the infographic and its descriptions; Kimberly Shipley who designed the infographic itself; and to all of our wonderful contributors who took the time to make videos to help.

To kick off the video series, we have two videos: one from Author Kristin Harmel and one from her Domestic Agent/Rights Holder Holly Root of Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. Kristin is the author of several books, but The Sweetness of Forgetting rose to domestic and international success, much to Kristin and Holly’s delight. In these two videos, both Author and Agent will share their specific role in the translation process. Discover what happened with Kristin’s book from both Kristin and Holly’s perspective.
