BildWebsite3Our Agency

Our literary agency can help you. We are a “full-service agency” constantly on the search for good authors. This means that we make it our task to find publishers for manuscripts, mainly in our area of focus: fiction and crime novels and mysteries. In addition, we offer support with PR and the organisation of readings as well as copy-editing and proofreading, writing professional assessments of German manuscripts and synopses.

Due to our experience in the publishing industry as well as our personal contacts, it is often easier for us to find publishers for the manuscripts we represent. We work only with professional publishing houses including e-book publishers. There are no additional costs for except for the 15% commission we charge if we are successful in finding a publisher for your work.
