Literary ManagementWith a strong audience platform, a winning book proposal, and quality content you're ready to pitch your book project. Do you seek literary representation to help you find the right agent or publisher?

We can identify suitable agents and/or acquisition editors at publishing houses, craft customized query letters, and represent authors and their work during proposal submission and contract negotiations.

Before Swenson Book Development LLC can represent you and your work, you need an audience platform, book proposal, and manuscript or writing sample.  We specialize in narrative non-fiction and memoir for the trade, academic, small, and independent presses.


Audience Platform Book Proposal Content

Identify your readers, pull them to your writing, and convert them into your book buying customers.


Prepare a business plan, budget and timeline. Your prospectus will include your bio, synopsis, table of contents, comparative title analysis and marketing strategy.


Creative and original editorial content is necessary, but not sufficient to meet publishing standards.
