New Epub Agent at the L. Perkins Agency!

You all know how strongly I believe in the digital future of books, right?  Well I just added two new ePub agents to my agency because I believe every author writing today needs someone who understands this brave new world of epublishing, and can negotiate a new career path for writers that will take them to the future.

Julia Bannon, a professional digital marketing executive with a decade and a half of experience working with HarperCollins and other media companies, who has an extensive editorial background as well, will also be joining us.

For right now, you can reach her by emailing  Please include her first name in your subject heading.

See more extensive bio below:

Julia Bannon  is most interested in taking on new clients writing historical and contemporary romance, as well 

as YA and women's fiction (especially what was once called chick lit).

So, get the word out there!

More Changes at The L. Perkins Agency

Saritza Hernandez, our hard-working epub agent, will be leaving the agency as of August 1, and joining Marisa Corvisero, who recently left to form her own literary agency and separate publishing consulting firm.

I was so glad to train both of these agents, and to see them join together.  I wish them both the best of luck in their new ventures.

But working with Saritza over these past two years has made  me realize just how important it is that a literary agency (or at east MY literary agency) have an agent in-house who really understands the brave new epub world and who can guide authors through various epubs and their contracts and strengths.

So keep an eye on this blog as I will be announcing the hiring of a new epub agent shortly.  When that happens, I hope you will tell your friends, as we will aggressively be looking for new agency clients.
