UK literary agent Neil Blair will be leaving the Christopher Little Literary Agency, taking client J.K. Rowling with him. The Bookseller reports that Blair will be setting up his own firm, The Blair Partnership.
Here’s more from the article: “Blair’s current base is at strategic digital agency TH_NK’s offices in east London. TH_NK and Blair worked together to develop the Pottermore site, through which Rowling’s Harry Potter books will be sold exclusively as e-books, though it is not yet known if TH_NK will be involved in Blair’s new company.”
According to scotsman.com, freelance readers convinced agency founder Christopher Little to sign the author in 1996.
