BookEnds Literary Agency Why Pre Orders Matter


A BookEnds blog. After much discussion about whether or not a BookEnds blog would actually be useful or read, we have finally decided to give it a chance. Not wanting to do yet another blog on the rants of literary agents (although I imagine there will be plenty of ranting), we are going to try to use this space primarily as a look at who BookEnds is. BookEnds Literary Agency is not just made up of the three agents who work here. Instead, we are comprised of three agents and many talented authors—our clients. Together we have all made BookEnds a success and together we hope to share our expertise, thoughts, and insights on publishing, our books, writing, and agenting.

In addition to the occasional posts by us (Jessica, Jacky, and Kim), we also hope to include useful advice to aspiring authors, interviews with our clients, bits of information from our books, and . . . well, we’ll see what else we can come up with.

So, welcome to the BookEnds blog. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. And, if you don’t yet know what BookEnds is, take a moment to check out our Web site at

  1. I just thought there should be a comment, so I thought I’d throw one on! Woo hoo! I’m canceling my PW subscription and getting all of my hot publishing news right here! 🙂

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging, Bookends! BTW, thank you, Jessica, for gracing our group with your presence (TWL Author Talks). We’ve learned so much and wish you much success!

  3. I agree with kathy – always great to have a new way to communicate with agents/editors, and I find it makes them more “real” and not big, scary, evil people who like to make us cry. (Kidding.)


    Kim was my first ever pitch, Dallas Nationals two years ago. I was a wreck! But she was a doll and made it very pleasant for me. And last year in Reno, we had the pleasure of having Jessica at our table for dinner and she was so, so nice! So needless to say, I’m a big Bookends Fan.

  4. Considering one of your agents has a partial of mine, I am more than happy to see you start a blog! I look forward to your posts, giving us a different take on literary agents.
