The 2012 version of our annual Who’s Scouting Whom Literary Scout Contact Sheet remains largely the same as last year’s. The most notable change among the 14 agencies listed is the growth of the Erin Edmison / Peter Harper venture and Liz Gately Book Scouting, both of which have more than doubled their roster of clients in the past year. Each scout’s clients are separated by country or region, and representation for children’s titles is denoted where applicable. We also include the handful of TV and film studios represented by the scouts in our roundup.
While in Frankfurt, the PT editors noted particular enthusiasm at the International Rights Directors Meeting over the number and range of titles Chinese publishers are buying. While one or two scouts on our list have added Chinese clients to their lists this year, there does not seem to be as great a number as one might expect, given the international trend.
