My name is Mark Malatesta. I’m a former NY Times bestselling literary agent, as well as the former Marketing & Licensing Manager of a well-known publisher. Now I’m a Bestselling Author Coach™ and branding consultant helping authors write, publish, and promote their books.

Photo of Mark MalatestaWhen I retired as a literary agent to become an author coach, I quickly realized that the literary agent directories on the market (print and online) are flawed. The print versions are 6 months old by the time they’re edited, printed, and distributed to bookstores. And the online versions are incomplete and filled with mistakes. Getting an agent is hard enough–the last thing you need is to get rejected because the literary agent directory you’re using is unreliable. That’s why I created this Literary Agent Directory.

This Directory of Literary Agents™ was originally developed so I could create accurate literary agent lists for my 1-on-1 coaching clients (they pay thousands of dollars to work with me, so my Literary Agent Directory has to be perfect). After a while I decided to publish the Directory of Literary Agents™online, so everyone could have access to it.

“Your directory is awesome! I started my agent research going through an Excel spreadsheet line-by-line. After about ten agents, I gave up. However, I am now using your directory as it is very easy to navigate and pleasant to view. This is the best literary agency directory out there.”
