|INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
|AEI thinks of itself first and foremost as a STORY MERCHANT - discovering, acquiring rights to, and managing the developing, publishing, producing, distributing, marketing, licensing, and virtually every facet of a literary property that can be exploited for commercial gain in all media throughout the world.
We have long been a "full-service" literary company, offering "under one roof" the management of all services associated with the exploitation of stories for any storyteller (writer or otherwise) wishing to earn money from getting his or her story to the right audience in every possible medium.
Founders and partners Ken Atchity (Ph.D., Yale) & Chi-Li Wong apply Atchity's time-management, creative mind, and story analysis methods to consult with and represent novelists, nonfiction writers, screenwriters, and VIPS - from initial concept through development, final draft, editing, and marketing.
Currently AEI takes on only new representation clients with long-range strategic potential.
For others we offer book- and brand-launch consulting.
If your writing is not yet ready for representation, AEI's sister company, Writer's Lifeline, Inc., provides freshman writers with professional guidance to develop their craft to commercial levels.
