Our Director, Tatjana Zoldnere, joined Andrew Nurnberg Associates Baltic in 1998. Formerly a journalist and literary translator, her first passion was French and German literature and culture.
We licence translation rights across the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and into the rapidly expanding markets of Ukraine, Georgia and Belarus. In 2018 we began actively selling Azerbaijani, Eastern Armenian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Turkmen, Tadjik and Uzbek rights across the ex-Soviet countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
We present new titles to publishers in our beautiful offices in central Riga and regularly travel to regional and international bookfairs, keeping in close contact with our clients.
We recently made the most wonderful deal for Three Women by Lisa Taddeo with Baltos Lankos in Lithuanian on behalf of Curtis Brown UK for an exceptional advance for the territory. The same title was also a hit with the Estonians, Rahva Raamat. In Ukraine and Estonia we also sold Permanent Record by Edward Snowden to KM Book Group and Tanapaev respectively, on behalf of Farrar, Straus and Giroux (USA).
All our markets during this pandemic year have been very active and we have organized numerous auctions, especially in Lithuania and Estonia. The most extraordinary deal of this year came in Georgia, when we placed A WOMAN MAKES A PLAN by M. Musk with Cezanne Publishing House on behalf of The Cooke Agency.
We recently made the most wonderful deal for THE HAPPIEST MAN ON EARTH by Eddie Jaku with Baltos Lankos in Lithuania on behalf of Macmillan UK for an exceptional advance for the territory. The same title was also a hit in Estonia, published by Uhinehud.
2020 has been the year of renewals and audiobooks. Our publishers across all territories have revisited their backlists, which resulted in a significant amount of renewal deals. Many publishers decided to expand their lists to include audio, which is a new format in our territories.

Our team is totally dedicated to the process of professional negotiation in our territories. As an integral part of this, we are in daily contact with both proprietors and a wide range of publishers to conclude truly exceptional deals.
