Publishing and Agent Services
Representing authors and public figures throughout America
Whether you are an established writer or a first-time author, navigating the maze of the publishing industry can be a challenge. The literary agents at the law firm of Winters & King, Inc. have helped numerous authors persevere and obtain lucrative publishing deals. Our legal experience coupled with our knowledge of the publishing industry has helped us build a record of success, including over 40 books on The New York Times bestseller list.
Guidance through all stages of the publishing process
Negotiating publishing contracts can be very complex, involving issues such as rights, royalties, advances, marketing and the editing process. It is all too easy for enthusiastic writers to get caught up in the excitement of a potential book deal and bargain away important rights. Even an established writer can benefit greatly from having an experienced literary agent act on his or her behalf.
The literary agents at Winters & King, Inc. have represented numerous well-known authors and brokered book deals with a number of major publishers, including:
- Penguin Random House
- Simon & Schuster
- Hachette Book Group
- Baker Books
- Bethany House Publishers
- Thomas Nelson
Our literary agents understand that negotiating with major publishers can feel like a lopsided process and work hard to level the playing field. Our experience in the publishing industry and legal knowledge allow us to negotiate comprehensive and ironclad publishing contracts based on the realities of the industry. Our goal is to help our authors tell their stories on their own terms and receive the rightful benefits of their hard work through royalties and advances.
If you have a story to tell, one of our literary agents may be able to help you. We have assisted numerous authors throughout the various phases of the publishing process. Our connections and experience in the publishing industry can be an asset to almost any author.
