make_travel_dollars_worth_a_fortune“I was too pressed for time to research and distribute individual queries to agents for my second book, so I used Publishers and Agents to help me find a literary agent who would be a good match. I received over 25 requests for a proposal and six agents offered representation. The one I went with secured a deal at a very appropriately matched travel publisher and I’m very happy with how the process worked throughout.”

golden_circle_secrets_book.jpg“Being first time authors we tried repeatedly to get published on our own but were rejected by every publisher we applied to. However, after reading an article about Gini’s service in the Wall Street Journal, we gave it a try and hit a home run. After the query went out, we had 16 publishers asking to review our material, including all major business book publishers. After many conversations, we landed with John Wiley & Sons and the book hit the #1 Sales Management Book and the #1 Customer Service Book in the country as rated by Amazon.com. After that we tried Gini’s PR service and now we are appearing on numerous regional and national radio programs. We would recommend this service to anyone.”

Hes-History-Youre-Not.jpg“By the way, your service sold yet another book for me. My initial email blast sold the book to Adams Media. When that didn’t work out, I got the rights back and another email blast re-sold it to another publisher. Hooray! For a number of reasons my agent had never approached the second publisher but they loved it, and gave me a decent advance. So now you’ve sold 3 books for me–including the same book twice. Is that a record?”

Healing-from-Trauma.jpg“My e-query went out early Monday morning. By 9 a.m. in Colorado, I had 10 requests to see the proposal or manuscript. By 4 p.m., I had 20. In all, I had 13 publishers and over 20 agents showing interest. I received 2 offers from publishers WITHIN 2 WEEKS of the query going out, and I picked what I thought was the best one. The book was then scheduled to come out half a year later. Wow! I never would have imagined so much quick response. (I had waited 9 months to hear from 6 publishers before this.)One of the reasons I think this service is so effective is that queries go to people at the top. In 3 cases, acquiring editors showed interest when others lower on the chain had previously rejected the book. In one case, I received a response from an editorial assistant saying no when 3 weeks earlier the executive editor had offered me a contract!Thanks, P & A, for opening up these doors!”

I received a flood of gracious responses to the (appropriately) hilariously funny equery letter you penned and send out. The responses included dozens of agents who have showed enthusiastic interest plus several publishers who requested copies of Making Waves, which, I had self-published a minimum run for a business promotion years ago — Gini, if only your skills and services had been known to me then. Still, better late than never. Thank you!”

Honey-Who-Shrunk-Our-Money.jpg“I was told that finding an agent and much less a publisher was a Herculean task, so I had nearly resigned myself to self-publishing my book, HONEY, WHO SHRUNK OUR MONEY? However, Gini convinced me to send out a query letter, since I had already made the effort to write a proposal. Gini edited my proposal and wrote a query letter for me. Then, she emailed it to her list of publishers and agents. I wasn’t holding my breath. I expected at most to get interest from maybe one or two agents or publishers. You can imagine how surprised I was to get 58 responses to the query letter from agents and publishers who wanted to see the proposal. The publishers included Dearborn, John Wiley & Sons, McGraw-Hill, Farrar, Straus, Giroux, St. Martins Press, Doubleday, Harper Collins, and Random House. As you can imagine, I couldn’t recommend Gini’s services more highly…And the result is I SOLD MY BOOK TO ST. MARTIN’S.”

As you can imagine, I am quite excited about this. Thank you very much for your help, and I will surely be coming back to you for more help with article queries.”

This morning (within minutes of your e-mailing), I received very nice responses from over 40 publishers for my four humor books. 14 of them (now up to 17) including many of the largest and most prominent, want me to send them my books ASAP. And these just weren’t junior editors either, these were senior editors and even the publishers themselves. Very few times in life do people deliver what they promise; even rarer are those individuals who deliver much more. You are definitely in the latter category!”

Open-Here.jpg“To this point I must say your service is an astonishing development in the transformation of the world of publishing. In the first 12 hours after the query went out for my book Open Here: You Hold the Keys, I received requests from executive editors and senior editors at several major publishing houses, including St. Martin’s, Ballantine, Rodale, and Barnes & Noble. Altogether, I received responses from over a dozen publishers and after 6 weeks, have been offered a contract by a major publisher who wants to publish the book…Also, thanks for your help in polishing up my query letter and in selecting the appropriate recipients. Quite a service you offer.”

101 Amazing Things about God“It’s not that I couldn’t find these e-mail addresses on my own. Sure I could…if I spent 3 weeks researching them and making long distance phone calls to confirm them! And then spent another week typing up and sending e-mails to each of them. But, why should I do that, when I can type one e-mail, sent it to PublishersAndAgents on one evening and …within hours of my e-mail going out (ON A WEEKEND) start replying to all the interest from major firms. This service is exactly what busy writers need. Someone to do the work for us. Like having my own personal secretary. I’m going to recommend this to all my agent and writer friends! I LOVE it!”

Flying-by-the-Seat-of-My-Pants.jpg“I have used www.publishersandagents.net a total of four times now, and each time have been stunned by the wonderful results. I have referred this service to hundreds of friends and fellow professionals and all have rave reviews. Recently I used Gini’s SCREENWRITERS SERVICE to announce the availability of film rights to my newest book FLYING BY THE SEAT OF MY PANTS: FLIGHT ATTENDANT ADVENTURES ON A WING AND A PRAYER. (WaterBrook Press, Random House – May 2005) As usual, this service delivered more than it promised. I was stunned by the number of producers and feature film companies asking for the treatment and showing interest in the acquisition of rights to the book. Thank you Gini, for providing a much needed service that takes the sting out of rejection. With your service, only those interested reply. And there is no face to face “go take a hike” or “wasted time”. I love this!”
