My Book Agent

A Literary Agency Getting Authors Published Well


This information will be held in confidence by My Book Agent. It will not be forwarded to others or shared with them unless your explicit permission has been obtained.

This form is designed for non fiction submissions. Fiction authors are asked to adapt the boxes to their needs.

Your Name (required)

Your Email (required)

Working Title of Your Proposal

Your subject and how you offer a new approach to it.

A list of 3-5 recent, competing titles and how your proposal fills a lacunae among them.

What in your author background (education, skills, and experiences) that makes you the right author for this book.

Your author's platform and how it will help to assure sufficient sales.


You should receive acknowledgment of your submission in one business day and, if indicated, a request for a manuscript sample. For submissions, you should expect a preliminary reply within 10 business days.

Please note: An author who approaches a literary agent is saying, “I am ready to go to market successfully.” Authors who do not understand how agents and publishing finances work or what is needed in a proposal package or how to structure their query letter should do their homework first. My Book Agent does not provide free assistance in these matters.
