“Manuscript: Something submitted in haste and returned at leisure.”
Literary agents are the gatekeeper to success in the publishing world, and we happen to know some of the best gatekeepers in the business.
Our industry experts possess the insider knowledge to match your manuscript with the appropriate literary agent so that your manuscript is given the best chance for publishing success.
Why Do I Need a Literary Agent?
The publishing process is incredibly complicated and often very frustrating. Your manuscript is finally written, polished, and ready to be shared with the world—but how do you get that life-changing manuscript into the hands and homes of your readers? Very simply, for most projects, the answer is a literary agent.
Most publishers will not even accept direct submissions from authors without representation by an agent. Furthermore, a literary agent’s services are essential for negotiating a publishing contract. They are lawyers by trade and will ensure that you’re fully aware of your rights and limitations before you sign on the dotted line. Most agents operate only on commission and thus work very hard to negotiate the best possible deal for you and your book.
Connecting You with the Right Agent for Your Book
We have had great success matching talented authors with equally talented literary agents. Whether you’re hiring us as ghostwriters, editors, or consultants, we will become intimately familiar with both your manuscript and your specific publishing goals. This keen familiarity is crucial when it comes to helping you select a literary agent. We will make sure that you are connected with an agent that has worked successfully within your manuscript’s genre and, most importantly, is reputable within the publishing world.
Your Success Is Our Success!
The success of your work is a direct reflection upon us, and so we have an equally invested interest in making sure your manuscript circulates to trusted, skilled, and connected players in the industry. We will conduct the research and establish the contacts necessary for you and your work to be well cared for and given the best chance at success. We will steer you clear of shady agents (of which there are many) who know nothing about current publishing trends or how to secure the right resources for your particular manuscript.
Not only will our industry experts help you achieve your vision, but we will also create the materials essential to that vision being understood by others. Once we’ve developed a compelling query letter or book proposal, we will provide you with the contact information of reputable agents within your genre and will guide you in the best ways to solicit their services. Best of all, these services are free of charge and included in most of our ghostwriting and editing packages.
Agents and publishers expect manuscripts and proposals that are clean, polished, and integrally professional. They want to know that they are not wasting their time. Our industry-savvy services will ensure that neither their time nor yours is wasted and that your book is given the best chance for publishing success.
