We represent leading journalists, storytellers, politicians, business executives, nutritionists, culinary authorities, historians, scholars, physicians, athletes, television and radio personalities, social media influencers, subject experts, trendsetters, and icons of popular culture, and place their book projects with major publishers in the United States, Canada, and worldwide.
The agency’s founder, bestselling author Rick Broadhead, has a proven track record for discovering literary talent, developing books with strong commercial and media potential, matching authors with publishers, negotiating strong deals for the agency’s clients, and guiding authors through the entire publishing experience – from the conception of an idea through to successful publication.
With an MBA from the Schulich School of Business, one of the world’s leading business schools, where he was awarded the school’s gold medal for demonstrated excellence in marketing, Rick is one of the few literary agents with a business and entrepreneurial background, one that benefits his clients at every stage of the book development and contract negotiation process.
The agency has negotiated millions of dollars in deals for its authors with such venerable American and Canadian publishers as Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Simon and Schuster, Little, Brown, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, W.W. Norton, St. Martin’s Press, and many others.
Modern technology combined with a plethora of self-publishing options has made the process of publishing a book seem deceptively simple. The reality is much more complex.
Driven by our passion for books and supported by our intimate knowledge of publishing contracts and our relationships with leading editors and top-tier publishers, we help our clients protect their intellectual property and their rights while positioning their books for maximum success.
