About Bob Erdmann

Bob ErdmannColumbine Communications & Publications founder and president, has a distinguished publishing career spanning five decades which includes all phases of book publishing. More than half of his long tenure in the publishing industry has been as consultant to literally hundreds of publishers of every size and shape. His clients have ranged from small, one-book, self-published authors to very large conglomerate publishing houses. The earlier part of his long life in publishing saw him in senior management, executive capacities with well-respected, high-profile publishing companies where his creative innovations in every element of book publishing brought about countless successes.

In 1978 Bob decided to share his successful publishing experience by opening his publishing consultancy-Columbine Communications & Publications. Since then his clients, whether large or small, have been provided with Bob’s unique personal one-on-one attention, which in today’s very impersonal world is greatly appreciated (and admired) by all. As a two-term president of the prestigious Independent Book Publishers Association-IBPA (Formerly PMA-Publishers Marketing Association) Bob played major roles in many of the successful programs that its members enjoy today. More information about Bob can be found at www.bob-erdmann.com.

Columbine Communications & Publications now focuses entirely on foreign rights.  Books in its highly successful Foreign Rights Programs have been sources of significant revenue streams for its North American client publishers and authors, as well as foreign publishers and agents, by successfully negotiating thousands of foreign rights licensing agreements.
