This time we are looking what is available in ‘Cozy’ audio books from Penguin Random House Books and their off-shoot brands, including Berkley, Obsidian, Alibi and others.

As one of the leading publishers, they have a great range of ‘Cozy’ mysteries in audio.

Unfortunately not all of these get beyond the ‘Territorial’, of the USA.

And the ones we do have available, are due to the authors and their agents hammering out these ‘Territorial Right’ on the contract, to keep their International Rights in both Kindle and Audio formats, which gains them more access to a Worldwide audience.

But the list of ‘cozy’ audio books unavailable outside the USA, makes a reader/reviewer, audio book listener/reviewer and bibliophile like myself weep.

NOTE TO PUBLISHER

I understand the original purpose of the ‘International Rights’, ‘Territorial Rights’.  Which was to keep track of sales and to make sure that all ‘Rights/Royalties’ were paid.

You would think in this day and age of computers and the internet, with ‘recorded sales’ through all outlets, whether land based or cyber based.  That it was about time that you lifted these antiquated and out of mode contracts with these restrictions, and allow your authors and yourselves the freedom of a wider field of opportunity in gaining more Worldwide sales and revenue.

As your competitors in USA publishing world do.

All downloadable products, such a Kindle/e-book, audio books, should be made accessible Worldwide.  Which would mean more revenue for yourselves and your authors.
