BOOKENDS LITERARY AGENCY (** Authorlink Preferred**)
Since opening its doors in 1999, BookEnds Literary Agency has never strayed from our original goal: Achieving dreams and doing what we love. Representing fiction and nonfiction for adults and children alike, BookEnds agents continue to live their dreams while helping authors achieve theirs.
First opened as a book packaging company, we were originally looking to take our own fresh and fun ideas and find just the right people to create the books publishers and readers were looking for. Over time, we missed working on fiction and seeing what could come from an author’s imagination as well as an author’s platform. So not two years after opening its doors, BookEnds changed its literary status to Agency.
While the industry has changed, and BookEnds has grown, the one thing we’ve never lost is our passion and love for books and the authors who create them.
Since BookEnds was founded in 1999, our agents have been proud to consider themselves an active part of the author’s publishing team. Our goal is to work together with the author to make all of her dreams come true.
Our agents are always looking for fresh new material from both published and unpublished authors. Before submitting to us, we ask that you read our submission guidelines to better ensure that the work you’re sending is right for BookEnds and that what you send is as “rejection-proof” as you can make it.
In fiction we represent all areas of romance, mystery, suspense, thrillers, science fiction and fantasy, women’s fiction, picture books, middle grade, and young adult.
In nonfiction, we represent titles in the following areas: current affairs, reference, business and career, parenting, pop culture, coloring books, and general nonfiction.
BookEnds does not represent short fiction, poetry, screenplays, or techno-thrillers.
