    Position Your Book in the Best Way for Book Agents

    Agents for Christian Authors | Find a Christian Literary AgentOne mistake authors make when writing and pitching their books is not thinking enough about their target market. In other words, many authors don’t spend enough time considering: a) who their readers could or should be; b) what genre(s) and/or sub-genre(s) their book might fit into (there’s often more than one); and c) the expectations of book agents, publishers, and the book-buying public for their type of book.

    You might think the genre of your book is simple or obvious, but there are often nuances and you can use them to your advantage—if you’re aware of them. The more you understand the various ways you might shape or position your book, the more likely it is you’ll get an offer for representation. And, if you describe your book inaccurately, or if your book is slightly “off” because you don’t know the norms for your genre, it can lead to rejection.

    Scroll below to see three case studies with teaching points for three successful authors who scheduled an Introductory Coaching Call with me, prior to doing more in a longer-term program. These examples will help you see what you might be missing with your book. These case studies are for authors of books about spirituality, but you don’t need to be faith-based to learn from them. I work with mainstream authors as well.

    Case Study #1: Book Agents for Religion and Spirituality Books

    A Christian author I coached was planning to query book agents for his memoir about raising his autistic son. After I read the first fifty pages of the author’s manuscript, I told him he should take some of the “faith content” out of his book—or put more in. There was too much faith content for mainstream book agents, and not enough for Christian literary agents. Long story short, Scott LeRette signed with Fine Print Lit, got multiple offers from publishers, and The Unbreakable Boy was published in hardcover by Thomas Nelson, an imprint of Harper Collins.

    Case Study #2: Literary Agents for Religion and Spirituality Books

    Another author I coached wrote a book that’s “spiritual but not religious.” He wanted both mainstream and faith-based readers. So, instead of pitching Christian literary agents, we pitched mainstream book agents. The problem I had with this author’s pitch was that he was describing his book as a “spiritual self-help book.” That would have been okay if his book was super-spiritual, but it wasn’t.

    I suggested he call his book “a self-help title with a spiritual bent (not religious).” That might not seem significant, but it’s huge. The author wanted to reach a broad audience and his book was written in that style, very inclusive, for people of all religious or spiritual beliefs—and those lacking them. That was important because there aren’t many author representatives who handle spiritual books, who aren’t Christian.

    Pitching this author’s book as “a self-help title with a spiritual bent (not religious)” made it possible to query a lot more agents. In particular, those interested in self-help but not necessarily familiar (or at all familiar), with spiritual books. This softer, friendlier approach allowed us to attract many more literary agencies. And, as I’m writing this, the author has interest from multiple agents (more info to follow once a deal is done).

    Case Study #3: Book Agents for Religion and Spirituality Books

    Another author I worked with who was planning to query Christian literary agents had written what she described as a Christian ghost story. Her book, Waiting for Butterflies, is a supernatural or paranormal novel about a mother’s spirit returning to her family, to resolve unfinished business. I knew this author would struggle with Christian literary agents, because the only spiritual entities you’ll meet in most Christian books are those you’ll see in the Bible: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, angels, demons, etc.

    Long story short, I suggested the author tone down the paranormal part of her story as much as possible (without killing the book or crushing her spirit), eliminating ideas and language that would likely trigger conservative readers in a negative way. Long story short, the author, Karen Sargent, got multiple requests from agents and a book deal with Amphorae/Walrus Publishing. Her book has more than 100 reviews on Amazon (5-stars), and it’s received the following honors: IAN Book of the Year, IAN Outstanding Christian Fiction, Foreword Reviews Gold, and a CSPA Christian Indie Award.
