Coming Soon
As our existing members already know, our site gets better all the time, with new features and ever-growing databases.

Some of the benefits different kinds of members particularly enjoy:

With hundreds of agents hosting web pages, Marketplace is already the largest most popular place to find information about top literary agencies. The deals database and daily updates provide essential information, and searches reveal editors' buying patterns and more, while the contact database keeps track of editors on the move. And the book tracker and book review index let you follow books for your agency and your clients.
Editors can post pages (and those who do tend to be very popular), though most currently rely on the live daily deal information to check proposals they're considering against recent sales, find and follow agents, watch the competition, and figure out who represents whom. The book review index is a massive time-saver for pulling jacket quotes, checking critical opinion, and identifying small press books worth a look. Plus, we've got more e-mail and other contact information on more agents than any other source, updated daily.

Everyone from serious aspiring writers to long-term professional authors has flocked to Marketplaceusually at the recommendation of an agent, editor, or fellow author. The deal reports, Dealmaker lists and contact database provide "inside" information and a sense of the business in ways no other source can.

Plus, our hosted pages and rights and proposals board posting have worked for writers time and again in connecting with agents, publishers, and other licensees. Unlike at some sites that profess to help writers get attention, publishing professionals use and respect Marketplace, and our pages and board are designed to let the audience you want to reach view your material in a way that works for them.

Industry Professionals
Publicists, freelance editors, consultants, technology providers, and many others find our easy-to-use hosted pages a great way to have a professional presence for a very modest fee (one good contact usually more than pays for a year's worth of membership). And you get to enjoy all the other databases and features that make PublishersMarketplace a site more book professionals rely on every day.

Complete access to everything at the site is available for a modest $25 per month. And paid access is always billed monthly, so you're never making more than a one-month commitment.

note: By using this Site, you agree to be bound by, and comply with, all of our Terms of Use.
