Today I’m featured on IPR License’s Meet the Author page….!

IPR License is a UK rights management service for publishers, literary agents and individual authors such as myself, where titles are showcased for foreign rights sales. As I don’t live in the US or the UK, things were a teensy bit more complicated for me to launch my book. But that’s part of the fun living in France, right?

I’d love to hear how any of you have found the publishing experience in the country you’re in… any tips or what-not-to-dos?

  1. Congrats on making it through. Wow. I knew French bureaucracy was a maze but this takes it to a whole new level!

  2. All worth it in the end, of course, like everything here. I think my worst French admin moment was the blood test for terrible and socially unaccepted diseases… imposed on us in order to get married.

  3. Hi Lizzie, Just read your interview with IPR licencing thingey. Hilarious! You struck a quite brilliant tone in it, reminiscent of Steven Clarke’s “A Year in the Merde.” Not quite mocking French bureaucracy, like Clarke does, rather you’re telling it as it is and letting people make up their own minds. It comes across v. well. Let’s hope someone out there in the great wide world seizes the opportunity to snap up the rights for such a sharp-witted author. Amicalement,

    Ray C.
