New Zealand father-and-son writing team Lance and James Morcan have secured an Arabic translation rights deal for one of their non-fiction books with major Saudi Arabian publisher Obeikan Publishing.
The book, titled ‘GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ’, was published last December by Sterling Gate Books. The first book in the Morcans’ ‘Underground Knowledge Series’, it includes a foreword by acclaimed Japanese scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha, and is already a permanent fixture in Amazon’s bestseller lists.
Translation rights deal a first.
In his foreword, Dr. Musha says he believes believe this is a much needed book for those who sense there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the methods currently being taught in mainstream education systems. “It contains a wide range of genius methods – all of which have the potential to increase your IQ,” he says.
Commenting on the Saudi deal today, Lance Morcan says it was negotiated by their German-based world rights literary agent. “We are delighted Obeikan have secured the Arabic translation rights for Genius Intelligence,” he says. “Their initial commitment is a print run of 3000 copies and our book will be distributed throughout the Middle East.”
Lance says he and James have contracts with foreign literary agents around the world, ensuring they have representation for the translation rights for all their fiction and non-fiction books in all languages. The Saudi agreement is their first foreign language deal.
The Morcans now have 10 published titles, including the international thriller series ‘The Orphan Trilogy’ and historical adventure series ‘The World Duology’, with two more titles to be released in the coming weeks. One of these is ‘Medical Industrial Complex’, book three in ‘The Underground Knowledge Series’.
