Specifically regarding under-resourced languages: when contacting copyright holders, it may help to mention to them that sharing can bring some benefits. By granting you the needed rights, they will help to create resources for the language, which will strengthen the language, its image, etc. Even the novelist, who may have interests in protecting the copyright, may benefit from the distribution of some of his work, which you will provide.

Best of luck
