S1 E14: Talking Movie, TV and Podcast Adaptations with Maylis Vauterin

Today I’m speaking with Maÿlis Vauterin, Rights Director at Editions Stock in France.

I’ve previously interviewed various rights sellers about one specific type of subsidiary rights sales: the sale of translation rights. This means that a book is translated in another language and published in the local market of that language.

In this episode however, Maylis and I discuss another type of subsidiary rights sales - and therefore a different potential income stream for authors - which is the licensing of audiovisual rights. We specifically cover movie and TV adaptations, as well as a relative newcomer in the book licensing world: podcast adaptations.


PS: I'm excited to start including a "Show Notes" section below, which will mention the book recommendations from the guest of each specific episode.


Maÿlis recommends the following three books:

  • The Wall by Marlen Haushoffer (US paperback edition with Quartet Books; translated from the German: Die Wand, Claassen/Ullstein)
  • Resilience: How Your Inner Strength Can Set You Free from Your Past by Boris Cyrulnik (US paperback edition with TarcherPerigee; translated from the French: Résilience, connaissances de bases, Odile Jacob)
  • La coquille Saint Jacques, sentinelle de l’Océan by Laurent Chauvaud (Les Equateurs; no English translation available)
