Welcome to the Bookouture Rights page!

After a record-breaking 2021 when we brought our rights business in-house and exceeded all targets for the number of deals agreed, we are super-motivated by the year ahead! It was wonderful being in Frankfurt in October and now we’re properly excited to be welcoming you back to London in April for the first London Book Fair in three years. We’ll be hosting a number of events at Carmelite House, and hope to see as many friends as possible there and at Olympia. For anyone not able to travel, we’re also setting up online meetings and will be planning virtual events to ensure that nobody misses out. Please let us know if we can set up a meeting with you as we have some incredible books to share with you!

Bookouture Rights Team


Peta Nightingale

Contracts, Rights and Development Director

I joined Bookouture in February 2017. We are now almost 5 times the size as a company. Bringing rights-selling in-house in 2021 was a key factor in growing this vital part of our business, and we have significantly increased our sub-rights revenue by bringing an expert focus on selling Bookouture titles only. We have also entered the German market through the launch of Bookouture Deutschland, translating and selling direct to German readers.


Richard King

Head of Rights

I joined Bookouture in 2021 after 10 years in the Rights team at Orion, where I sold a wide variety of rights, including translation and film/TV rights, across the entire Orion list. Now Bookouture has brought our rights business back in-house, I am the go-to person for translation rights in Europe and South America and film/TV rights across the Bookouture catalogue.


Saidah Graham

Rights and Contracts Executive

I joined the Bookouture team as Rights and Contracts Executive in 2020. I manage the sale of translation rights in Asia and the Middle East, as well as large print and audio rights.
