Literary Agency

Our literary agency service is new, innovative and dynamic, with a mission to secure authors the very best publishing deals. In addition to targeted approaches, authors we represent appear in our JM Agency Catalogue, which is mailed to 300 publishers in the UK and Ireland annually. Our rights agency service has an international focus, having secured rights for authors in Brazil, while negotiations with some of India’s largest publishers are currently ongoing.

The JM Agency App, a complement to our catalogue, is currently under development, which will help us blend traditional representation with modern technology. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to consider authors for representation at present.
