Robert's Bio:

Robert Gottlieb is the Chairman of Trident Media Group, book publishing’s top-ranked literary agency for close to twenty years. In 2000, he co-founded Trident Media Group with the goal of bringing an innovative approach to literary agenting. That approach includes a uniquely organized company that not only delivers the highest level of author management in the industry but also provides unique digital and social media marketing support to help launch authors’ careers.

Robert Gottlieb works with several New York Times bestselling authors and is skilled at maximizing and establishing his authors’ brands on a worldwide basis. When negotiating deals he seeks to retain as many rights as possible, including foreign rights, film/TV rights, and audio rights, to ensure that the author’s benefits extend beyond their domestic publishing arrangements. Trident Media Group’s robust Foreign Rights Department then sells these titles at the London Book Fair and Frankfurt Book Fair and continues a year-round effort of constant contact with foreign publishers to ensure substantial foreign deals. Robert Gottlieb also has long-standing relationships with many production companies and regularly travels to LA along with his film department to pitch book-to-film projects there. He is devoted to his authors’ careers and can guarantee he will advocate for them at every stage of the publishing process.
