So, I just received a message on my personal FB account from someone claiming that they have read my novel and want to offer me a deal. Now, normally, I would think it was a hoax as they contacted me from my personal FB account- which I’m not even sure how they got that- and offered a global copyright deal.
But, the way the message goes and even after doing some research on the company, they seem legit though they are a Chinese based company and I write in English. The things they mention in the message seem a bit too goo to be true for a company that I think is quite small.
Has anyone ever heard of this company either?
I’ve posted the message below to get some opinions on it and if I should blow off the message and not respond or at least ask for some more details.
Thank you for any help you can provide
Dear *******(My real name lol)
I have recently come across your work on Wattpad and think that your novel “Behind Closed Curtains” has the potential to attract many readers around the world. I work for a major growing web novel company which is currently collaborating with one of the top three web literature platforms in China. They have a worldwide audience, so this would definitely be a great opportunity for you to get your story out there and increase your fame as an author.
With that being said, we would like to formally ask you if you would be willing to negotiate your global copyright for your novel to be e-published globally and adapted into a variety of forms (comic books, graphic novel, audiobook, etc.) and languages. We believe it will be a big hit with readers and would hate to miss out on the opportunity to give it to the world.
If you are interested in negotiating your global copyright or even part of it, please let me know so I can get you more information. Thank you very much for your attention and consideration on this matter.
We look forward to hearing from you!
