    Thumbs up INDEX TO AGENTS, PUBLISHERS, AND OTHERS

    Before you proceed, please read the following:

    How Real Publishing Works
    http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20586

    and

    Everything you wanted to know about literary agents...
    http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=615

    Now read them again. Really. Understanding the above will keep you out of the hands of scammers and help you bypass the slush pile. The extra time spent now will save you much trouble later.

    Moving on ... this Index contains four main sections:

    • Agents & Agencies - A-J, K-Z
      Listed alphabetically by agency (or agent's first name if not affiliated with an agency).

    • Publishers & Publishing Services - A-E, F-N, O-Z
      Print, electronic, and audio publishers, as well as services to help you self-publish in any format.

    • Other Services & Resources
      Watchdog Sites & Organizations
      General Agent & Publisher Listings
      Editing, Appraisal & Critique Services
      Display Sites
      Submission Services
      Publicity / Marketing / Reviews
      Content Sites / Freelance Job Listings
      Writers’ Associations, Communities, Forums & Workshops
      Contests & Awards
      Miscellaneous

    • Everything Else
      Avoiding and Reporting Scams & Fraud
      Rights, Copyrights & Permissions
      How to Find an Agent and/or Publisher
      Navigating the Wide World of Publishing
      Published Authors Have Problems, Too
      Miscellaneous

    To search, use either the “Search This Thread” at the top of this post, or the forum “Search” at the top of the page (Advanced Search tends to work better). You can also use the "Find (on This Page)" function of your browser (usually Ctrl-F).

    If all else fails, search via Google using the site:absolutewrite.com “search string here” format. For your convenience, there’s a customized Google search box at the bottom left of every forum page.

    Many threads contain multiple subjects. If a thread isn't named or doesn't start with what you're looking for, keep reading cuz it's in there somewhere (and you might even learn something by accident. )

    This Index is NOT all-inclusive. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, check out Preditors & EditorsTM: http://pred-ed.com/. [ETA: Currently offline, alas.] See below for how to post about someone/thing new.

    Script and screenwriters might have better luck at the Done Deal board over at Script Sales: http://messageboard.donedealpro.com/boards/index.php?

    If you can't find a relevant thread, post your question in a NEW thread (the button is on the main Bewares page), not here in the Index.

    • When asking a question, include what info you already have, especially a website, so folks can give you a quick and accurate answer.

    • Post one subject per thread. For example, if you have questions about two agencies that you cannot find existing threads for, create a separate thread for each agency.

    • Do not create a new thread about an existing topic. No matter how old a thread is, just post your question to it, and it will pop to the top.

    Enjoy!

    Cao, you're my new favorite person.

    I'm going to close down this thread and let people thank you with rep points.

    Do me a favor: check to see if you're still able to edit your own posts after a thread is closed.

    Drat, that didn't work.

    Personally, I like an all-in-one list, so I don't have to know what an agency or market is in order to find it. I scroll. I'm also on a slow connection, so I browse with javascript and everything else that slows me down further off. Maybe one master list, with color-coding to indicate agency, publisher, on-line market, etc.?

    And have I mentioned lately that you are a saint for doing this?

    Thanks, Aconite, I try.

    Color-coding's a great idea! Let's see...how about blue for online markets and green for screen agents? Do those show up well, without being obnoxious?

    Has anyone heard of this agency? They say they represent screenwriters. I couldn't find them on this forum. They aren't on Predators & Editors, either. Thanks.

    Well, I've taken a stab at color-coding, 'though I'm sure I've missed half of them. Anyway, keep the feedback coming!

    I have a couple of questions, Cao Paux. First, I don't see a thread on Loose ID. From everything I've dug up on the net, they are a pretty big erotica e-pub with some big names in their author list. Second, the link for Red Sage sent me to a thread on Limitless D2D? Are they the same company or is it just a glitch?

    Thanks and you're doing a superb job keeping this up to date! Kudos!

    Thanks!

    If something isn't listed, it's because no one's asked about it yet (or has asked only within the last week and I haven't updated yet). As much as I'd love to have the One True Index, I've got a cat and husband to tend as well.

    As for Red Sage, it pops up in the Limitless thread beginning with post #34. Sometimes people ask about other companies mid-thread, so you might need to wade through to find what you're looking for.

    CaoPaux, I've read through the entire thread and I think it would be easier if you could just get me a great agent and a terrific publisher! hehe Seriously thanks for the hard work the thread is excellent!

    I thought I'd supplement this thread by listing UK agents and publishers. As there are not many seperate threads about these, I'm simply going to list their websites, as well as any other relevant threads about them. I'm going to add to this list slowly, a few at a time, starting with the biggest and/or the ones I know best.

    OK, let's start with UK Agents, and first the Big Five; these are conglomerates with several agents (though WMA only has two lit. agents), and their own media departments.

    Thanks, Aruna! Couldja alphabetize, though? It's an OCD thing.

    Anyway, how's the Index working for folks? I'm toying with the idea of making a separate Index for the magazines and freelance stuff. Yes? No? Maybe?

    Question...

    I need to know which agents are actively looking for young adult fantasy novels?

    This list is amazing, but I have no clue which ones to try.

    If you can't lay hands on a copy of Writers' Market or Jeff Herman's Guide, sites like http://www.agentquery.com/ allow you to search by interest, genre, etc.

    Be sure to cross-reference any agent (or publisher) you're thinking of querying with the list here, at Preditors & Editors, and with Writer Beware.

    Best of luck!
