Are you an author that wrote a music or film biography in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s or even today? Whether it was a best-seller or not, if you are now ‘out of contract’ with the publisher we would love to hear from you!

If you own the rights to your book or book catalog we would be interested in acquiring these rights…

Or. If your book-catalog remains ‘in contract’ with another publisher and if it’s out of print or you’re frustrated by the lack of current activity on it, we would be interested in putting your book in production to revise or to update your old manuscript with additional content!

We operate on a global basis, and will actively pitch your book for licensing as a book or eBook or for book and television book rights… the list of possibilities goes on and on.

By signing to ACGI we can help sell, license and distribute your titles around the world, like we do for our other best-selling authors.

ACGI has sold over a million books and has over 30 years of international licensing experience.

We know how to market and license entertainment products!


How come ACGI has so many entertainers that the major publishers also represent?
As well as ACGI’s on-going acquisition of unauthorized biographies (whereby we acquire the rights to the books from authoritative authors) since the late 1990s, ACGI has been acquisitioning authors to research and write about the lives of specific music entertainers. The ACGI staff actively solicits sells and licenses these new versions of entertainment biographies.

Why should I license from ACGI instead of the major publisher where a book is available from both parties?
As ACGI is a small, hands-on company, we are able to respond to your request almost immediately, without the need for a decision to be approved by several departments, which can take months.

ACGI is also in a position to offer you a more competitive deal, as we don’t have to support a huge major publishing corporation with all the associated costs!

How long will it take to finalize a deal and get a contract, book, ebook or script?  Once we’ve provisionally agreed to a deal to license a book or ebook or a script for your territory, a contract will be issued and sent to you for signature within a few working days.

How does ACGI know what’s right for my project?
The licensing team at ACGI have a background that spans every single genre of book and music publishing from the 1980s right up to today.

They know the Amber / Colossus Books catalogue inside out, and have a thorough understanding of what book is right for each project, be it a film or television program or project.

I have a particular entertainer in mind, but they are not listed in ACGI’s cataloguewhat options do I have? Contact the ACGI team anyway as we may be able to suggest a similar alternative that is available from our catalogue or we may be able to requisition an author to write a script or manuscript on your behalf.
