RESEARCH INTO agents & publishers

You've put in the hard work of preparing your book proposal. Now it's time to send it out to literary agents and publishers, with an effective and carefully considered strategy.

Pitching is about much more than closing your eyes, sending your book proposal out at random and hoping for the best. Being well prepared can make all the difference.

Note: this service works best for those who have completed Your Book Proposal with me. For more information see here.


You've finished your book proposal, and it was a lot of work.

Now you're ready to send it out to literary agents and/or publishers.

You feel nervous about this next stage. You recognise that pitching is an art: it's about much more than sending an email out to every company you can think of.

You don't want to risk messing up at this stage, after all the hard work you've put into your proposal. Your pitch must be as professional, compelling and precise as possible. 

This package gives you the industry insights you need to be ahead of the curve. 

I offer guidance in the following ways:

STRATEGY SESSION #1: Query letter

I'll help you write and polish a query letter to send out to literary agents and/or publishers.  We'll strive to make this as succinct and compelling as it can be. 

The aim of the letter is to pique interest in your project, so that an agent or editor at a publishing house then requests your full proposal. Only then will a decision be made about the viability of your project, and an offer made (or not).

Coaching call #1 (60 minutes) will be dedicated to how to craft your query letter.

After the call you can send me up to 5 drafts of your letter, and I'll provide editorial feedback on each round, to get your query into polished shape.

STRATEGY SESSION #2: Agents and publishers

I'll research and draw up a shortlist of 10 literary agents and/or publishers that are  well suited to the book you're writing, and who are actively looking for material like yours. 

Please note: I do not have special relationships with these companies. I will simply recommend some that are a good fit.

Coaching call #2: We'll discuss this shortlist, prioritise the companies you like, and decide how and when you'd like to approach them. We'll discuss tailoring your query letter to the specific needs and desires of each company.

STRATEGY SESSION #3: Your longer-term plan

On our final coaching call,I'll share industry tips and insights into how you can conduct your ongoing agent and publisher research.

I'll walk you through the best way to build upon the list of recommended companies that I created for you, so that you can continue the research on your own, targeting only agents and/or publishers that are relevant for you and your particular project. 

I'll share ways to help you do this in the quickest and most professional way, and provide you with a spreadsheet template (XL) to help you track responses as they come in.

You'll then be well-equipped to proceed into the longer process of pitching, which can take time, because each company can take 6-8 weeks to get back to you (if they respond at all.) This can jangle the nerves, but by doing it with a pre-established strategy, you'll be well prepared for whatever ensues.

Note: This package does not guarantee that you will be signed with an agent or publisher. 

Nobody can promise that. It depends on many factors, such as world events, industry trends, books about to be released that are similar to yours, luck and so much more.

It's not unusual for a writer to send out as many as 50-80 query letters over time, or even 100+. It can be a long-drawn-out process.

The duration of your pitching process will depend upon the industry response to your pitch, your emotional stamina, and how much time and energy you are willing to invest in the process.
