How do I find an agent?

If you would like your work considered for a major publisher, we recommend that you work with an established literary agent. Agents can be found in such literary guides as Literary Marketplace, or The Writer's Market, which you should be able to find in your local bookstore or library. You can also visit Writer's Digest for more information.


How can I write to or find out more about an author?

We have an extensive library of current author information available with the click of your mouse. On our index simply pull down the menu under Authors, and click on the author of your choice. Almost every author's page will be complete with a biography, photo, e-mail address, home-page address, book signings, awards and accolades, newsworthy events, and a listing of their books.
