We do NOT represent:

  • Fiction
  • Screenplays
  • Juvenile (books intended for kids)
  • Your life story, memoir, autobiography or fictionalized autobiography
  • True crime, dark, murder stories or any books written by incarcerated people  (too creepy)
  • Books intended primarily for the Christian, Judaica or Muslim markets
  • Personal stories about your amazing spiritual journey (unless you have +50,000 verifiable, active followers and a Klout.com score above 60)
  • Personal stories about how you survived sexual molestation, mental abuse, an addiction to drugs or alcohol and/or a mental breakdown (far too sad)
  • Illustrated or Coffee Table books – nothing that’s mostly photos, line drawings or crayon works done by your child
  • Gritty books about war, violence (especially against women), or extreme human cruelty
  • Dating, relationship or dating online books (unless your Klout.com score is over 60)
  • Books that have been channeled by animals, aliens, pet rocks, dead people, etc. This applies even if you really believe you hear (or are) Jesus, Mother Theresa, Princess Diana or Gandhi. (Sorry…but do say hello for us!)

If you send us one of the above, you won’t hear back from us at all.  We’re not rude.  You’re just not paying attention, which is decidedly unprofessional of you.

We would LOVE to read all about your nonfiction book idea in one of these subject areas:

  • Business (sales, management, marketing, leadership, entrepreneurship or finance)
  • Self-Help and Pop Psychology (weight loss, get happy, use your brain, have a better marriage, be a better parent, etc. – assuming you have a platform of some kind to support you in spreading in this message.)
  • Health (anything EXCEPT personal stories of illness/recovery or how you cared for an ill person.)
  • Politics (your impeccable high-level credentials in the arena are 100% mandatory)
  • Inspirational and Metaphysical (Note: we’re highly selective here)
  • How-To (most subjects welcome)
  • Reference and Compendiums (the ultimate guidebook to…)
  • History (all countries, epochs and civilizations)
  • Science & Nature (not including memoirs about you and your beloved pet)
  • Celebrity or Very Unusual Memoirs and Bios
  • Popular Culture and Current Affairs (selectively)
  • Spiritual (unless it is intended for any specific faith group, e.g. Christians, Jews or Muslims)
