The Official Directory of Literary Agents

Photo of Mark Malatesta - Literary Agent Database and DirectoryMy name is Mark Malatesta. I’m the creator of the official Literary Agent Database and Directory. I’m also a former AAR book 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.

When I retired as a book agent to become an author coach, I quickly realized that there was no perfect literary agent directory or database on the market (print or online). The print versions of every literary agent database and directory are 6 months old by the time they’re edited, printed, and distributed to bookstores. And the online versions of every literary agent database and directory are incomplete, and filled with mistakes. Getting a book agent is hard enough–the last thing you need is to get rejected because the directory of literary agents you’re using is unreliable. That’s why I created the official Literary Agent Directory.

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

Author Success Story: Nonfiction/Self-Help  
Author Picture

"Mark helped me get five different offers for representation from top literary agents. I signed with Stephanie Tade who got me a 6-figure book deal with Penguin Books, which published my book in hardcover! When Stephanie first contacted me, she was very excited and said, ‘I can’t get your book proposal out of my head. It’s brilliant – I mean, really, it’s fantastic. Editors should be salivating by the time they get to the chapter outline.’ Working with Mark was completely worth it." [Click here to see all Mark Malatesta reviews]
