After a brief introduction to each other, Heather first went over with Glopress representatives the 45+ books she brought with her for this meeting. These books were all published by YNWP in the last 10 years or so. Some books are award winning books, some are selling very well in all over Canada.
Glopress representatives expressed their interests in purchasing the foreign rights of these books and publishing them in China. YNWP owns the world wide rights of every book it publishes in Canada, and is happy to sell the foreign rights and to see them get published overseas.

On June 11th of 2019, our president Rachel Xiao and CEO Robin Liu met with Jillian Bell, SaskBooks’ Director of Marketing and financial officer. Robin Liu made a brief introduction of Glopress’s history and affiliate company, and Glopress’s business of purchasing foreign rights of locally published manuscripts and publishing in China for a Chinese market. Jillian Bell is very glad to know that we could help local publishers with the sales of the foreign rights of their manuscripts. Finally Jillian introduced us the benefits of becoming a member of SaskBooks, and offered us this opportunity. Glopress made application at the meeting and became a SaskBooks member on the second day.
