CHRISTIAN AUTHOR RESOURCES: You want to publish a book. Now what?
Finding an Agent
Christian publishing houses are not able to process the large number of unsolicited manuscripts received each day. They secure new authors by relying on agent recommendations, attending Writers Conferences to meet authors, and discovering new voices on the ChristianBookProposals.com website.
“A Is for Agent” – What does a Literary Agent do? , Steve Laube, President of The Christian Writers Institute, explains what a Literary Agent does for you as a writer.
Requesting the services of an agent is an option you can select once you have prepared your book proposal at ChristianBookProposals.com. For more information on securing an agent, we recommend you read:

NOTE: You should not be required to provide any upfront monies for your agent’s services. Commission will be paid to the agent when book is published. See the regulatory information for the agent association, AAR, for more information.
