A literary agency that reinvents the book business for the 21st century.
A literary agency that provides the most tenacious representation in the industry, blending editorial support before the book is published with publicity support after the book is released.
Javelin is the ideal agency for authors because we are authors ourselves. We have firsthand knowledge of the publishing experience, and because of that, we’ve put together a team that will help you in ways no other literary agency can. Because of our keen commercial eye, we have out-negotiated veteran agents on book deals for our authors. We have a first-class writing and editorial staff who can craft book proposals that get the attention of the country’s top editors. We boast our own in-house publicity team that helps make sure the books our authors have poured their hearts and souls into find the largest possible audience. These elements are essential to making books into instant bestsellers.
Javelin’s mission is to discover great storytellers and to help them tell stories worth remembering. Because we give each of our authors close attention, we are highly selective with the literary projects we accept. As a result, we regrettably have to decline to represent a large number of proposals that have potential, but don’t quite meet our criteria for success. In addition, we represent nonfiction authors only.
