Authors and Publishers: If you're interested in our services please send a manuscript, Advanced Reader Copy, or published book to us first; along with author bio, CV, and publisher information. We are only able to accept a very small number of new clients each year as most of our authors stay with us from one book to the next. We only work with fiction (particularly literary fiction), and narrative non-fiction, especially memoir, nature/environment, food/farming, and travelogues.

You've been great to work with. Your unique approach to book marketing and passionate belief in my book helped create a rousing success.
Lets do it again next time around. Many thanks.
