About Us

Founded by Jeremy Murphy in 2018, the JM Agency is a dynamic and comprehensive publishing service and literary agency that dares to do things differently.


We help writers at all stages of the book publishing journey, from editing to cover design, from eBook creation to marketing. We secure writers traditional trade publishing deals and we provide them with a comprehensive and bespoke ‘book management’ service, where we manage the publishing process in a professional and author-centred way.
