Hachette Book Group has launched an author and agent portal, a new channel within the company's business platform, hachettebookgroup.biz.

The portal will provide self-service, updated information for agents and authors, including confidential sales data, for all titles published by HBG.

“I'm very pleased to be able to offer this new channel for communication and information sharing," said Hachette Book Group CEO Michael Pietsch. "The portal is designed to add transparency to the publishing experience by making sales data and resources readily available and easy to use to authors and agents, our valued partners in the publishing process.”
