The publishing industry is ever-changing as companies seek to satisfy readers’ voracious appetites. My goal as an agent is to connect authors to those publishers seeking inspirational or clean reads, whether that be in the Christian or general market.
What do I mean by clean reads? Books that anyone can read without blushing, cringing, or having to skip over parts you wouldn’t want your mom to see. My clients write without graphic sexuality or profanity, yet their stories resonate with readers anxious for the conflict, tension, and intense characters who live with reality in the pages of their books.
I believe the only reason an author won’t realize their dream is that they quit before reaching the goal. It’s not easy to get published. It’s a lot of work and sometimes a lot of rejection. But I stand with my clients, pushing (and sometimes dragging) them to be better.
