Agency Newsletter


Another month has whizzed by and another newsletter is filled up. We had so much news this month that I couldn’t put everything in it. Seriously.

The Frankfurt Book Fair was a brilliant success and Mary and Emma, from our amazing Rights team, took around 150 back-to-back meetings over the week, meeting with editors and agents from around the world, securing deals and showcasing the ample talent that our agency has to offer. Thank you so much for the hard and exhausting work!

In this month’s newsletter, we have two powerhouse bestsellers in the UK and US. There’s the release of the 2nd Jack Reacher movie featuring Tom Cruise. And there are SO many award wins and nominations.

Congratulations to all our authors who won and are nominated, particularly the DA Children’s authors who have take up a big chunk of the page!

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and for all you writers thinking about submitting, take a look at our submission pages to familiarise yourself with the process. We’re ready to read it whenever you are!

Agency Newsletter


Here is the roundup from the last month at the agency which is slightly later than usual, apologies. This is because it’s Frankfurt season! And there is lots of exciting work to be done in preparation for the fair.

For those of you who don’t know, the Frankfurt Book Fair is primarily a rights fair where publishers and rights teams meet for, quite often, back-to-back meetings over the week, selling and acquiring book rights. These fairs are a great opportunity for publishers, agents and editors to discuss the kind of books they are interested in acquiring or, for us, pitch books they are representing.

Foreign rights are a hugely important part of the industry and the fair is one of the few times in the year when agents and publishers from all around the world can meet face to face.

Look out for next month’s newsletter with a roundup of all the news from the fair.

In this month’s edition, I nearly ran out of room as we had so many bestsellers, award wins, new languages and brilliant endorsements from powerhouse authors. It’s all good news!

Remember to download the PDF for best quality. It also looks great if you print it out…

Very best wishes,

There’s always a lot going on at the agency, with authors, rights, submissions etc. but we always want to keep you in the loop.

The newsletter is, again, packed with news. August is usually a quiet month in publishing – but not for the DA Agency.

Our debut authors are enjoying immense success around the world, our much-loved established authors continue to grow from strength to strength and we welcome new faces to our DA Children’s Book Agency.

We have a brand new Twitter account for DA Children’s so make sure your following (and on Facebook too).

Enjoy the rest of sunny summer days!
