Samantha B. Literary is thrilled to be eagerly seeking new clients. Every submission is carefully considered, but as a one-woman agency, I am by nature highly selective.
In addition to thinking about whether I can sell the project, I also ask myself questions like, "Do I love the project? Will the author and I work strongly together? How passionate am I about his or her potential?"
After all your hard work, you deserve a true partner in business and a great advocate for your creativity. That's why even if I decline to represent you, that doesn't mean the right agent isn't out there.
Keep writing. Keep reading. Keep telling stories.
