Set Mode to Agented

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve signed with Sara Megibow of Nelson Literary Agency ( to be my literary agent. Sara is well-connected, energizingly enthusiastic, and the team at Nelson Literary is, in my opinion, in a fantastic place to help support their authors in these tricky confusing times in publishing.

Sara is working with me on GEEKOMANCY right now, and I could not be more excited. More news as it arrives!

  1. Always nice to find other agents looking for fantasy queries. I will need to keep them in mind, so thanks for the link.

    Although, what are your personal thoughts on self-publishing ebooks? I’m leaning in that direction if only for the control aspect and 70% royalties. That’s a tempting avenue that’s really hard to ignore…

  2. Rob,

    I think self-publishing is a real option for many, but that the most successful self-publishers (as far as I know) are those with a large list of works available, who are relentless in promotion. I do not have the time and resources to be a full-time book rep, full-time writer, and full-time self promoter, so that’s less appealing to me, especially given that I only have a couple of works that I’d be alright with putting up right now.

    Since I work with publishers, I am also well-aware of the added value they can bring to the table, and I believe that for my work and my career right now, that added value is more than worth the lessened royalties.

  3. You make good points. Sometimes time is more valuable than money. A lot to think about, certainly.

  4. Congrats! Nelson Agency is class all the way, and Sara is the definition of awesome! Best of luck on getting Geekomancy out there and sold!

    I’m so excited to have you on the team! I remember reading Shield and Crocus’ opening last year, and being so impressed with its creativity. WOOO. Go Team Megibow!! Excited to see what happens with GEEKOMANCY. πŸ™‚
