THE SAINT by Tiffany Reisz

Art. Patience. Discipline.

I've worked in publishing almost nine years now and love it even more now than I did on that first day. I am in awe of authors - your hard work and talent and the words you bring to the world touch me. I'm proud of my publishing partners - the thoughtful, complex and strategic campaigns you bring to the table make dreams come true. And I'm continually thankful to readers. People read. And read, read, read, read. Even my son's 4th grade classmates run up to me in the hall waving a book in their arms to say, "I read this last weekend and I loved it!" Stories touch lives and the readers crave those stories.

I have a very specific goal as a literary agent. I'm looking to represent debut genre authors interested in working together to build long-term profitable careers. My strategy changes author to author and book to book but I always focus on the long game - how to craft artistic and commercial success. And, I'm communicative with my clients - we craft strategy together and I spend a lot of time setting expectations and communicating about process so they can focus on writing great books.

Megibow Literary Agency, LLC is a new business formed in December 2014 although it was built on the bones of 8 years experience and the support of a tremendous team. For more information on me or about the agency, I do answer questions and drop tidbits about what I'm looking for on twitter. Please follow me @SaraMegibow
