The Hartline Agency
« on: February 05, 2007, 09:48:14 PM »

At LOVE IS MURDER, I got the opportunity to pitch my novel to Mr. Terry Burns of the Hartline Literary Agency.

Anyone familiar with them?

Jim, I keep a Word document with any scraps of information on agents I can copy and paste, going back several years. I did a "Find" on Hartline, and it looks to me like they have sales, mostly inspirational fiction to small publishers. Nothing on how happy their authors are with them, one way or another, and nothing on your particular agent.

Sorry I can't be more helpful, but at least there are no warning flags.

agentquery.com says they take mainly books in the inspirational genre.

Their website lists some of their authors.

Jim, I have a friend who has written several books for them. She is very happy with their promotion and their contract. I don't know about their mystery line because she writes inspirational romance.

Well,  I sent off my formal pitch to Hartline yesterday.  They're apparently trying to broaden their client list beyond the insprational market, which is why Mr. Burns was at LIM.

Maybe, given their specialty to this point, it'll be a match made in heaven.

Thanks to everyone who offered information.

Good luck.  Or should that be, 'break a leg.'?  How come we don't have the good luck/bad luck superstitions of the theater?  Hmmm....

Live long and prosper?

Anyway, wishing you well.

Jim, do update us on how it turns out. I, for one, would be very interested.
Here's to your success with Hartline.
