Need To Promote Your Book? Strothman Literary Agency Can Help

strothman.pngBeing successful in publishing means finding a need and filling it.

Boston-based literary agency The Strothman Agency is doing just that with their new publicity services offered to clients — and other authors, too. These specialized services, called Epilogue Media, will mix traditional and social media strategies tailored to each particular book and author, and are ideal for journalists-turned-authors.

“Things have been shifting over the past few years,” explained Strothman agent Dan O’Connell, who will be overseeing Epilogue Media. “There are agents that bring on people like me who oversee the publicity efforts of the publishing houses for their clients, but this is sort of a spin-off. We’re ramping up our promotional abilities for our clients and other clients.”

Epilogue’s services will, of course, be available to Strothman’s clients, which include a number of journalists like Peter Gosselin from the LA Times and former New York Times columnist Anthony Lewis. However, O’Connell’s insight is also being made available to authors outside the agency, although they’ll be looking to help authors who are similar to those represented by the agency, namely journalists, academics and writers of nonfiction and narrative nonfiction.

“We really want to very carefully target clients that will help us play to our strengths,” O’Connell said. “But we have had great success with journalists in the past.”
