Going Exclusive in Japan

I am pleased to announce that TZC has reached an agreement with Japan UNI Agency, Inc. for exclusive representation of TZC’s clients and titles for World Japanese rights.

As many in publishing know, there has been a tradition of nonexclusive representation of US agents in Japan. It was often believed that this was the best-case scenario, as some agents may have had greater strengths in some areas. However, after years of such nonexclusive representation, I’ve determined that it’s a bit of a free-for-all. And that’s a bit too disorganized and inefficient for my taste. Thus, after communicating with several Japanese agents and meeting with some of the majors at Book Expo America, I have made the decision to be exclusively represented by Japan UNI.

I look forward to a long and profitable association with Japan UNI.
