Albert T. Longden Associates is a Literary & Entertainment Agency. formerly affiliated with Three Corners Entertainment. Submissions can be email directly to the email address posted.

As an Agent, we have limited time and therefore want writers that are preferably experienced and are willing to listen to productive critiques of their work.

Old fashioned story telling in the mode of the classic early 20th century greats such as Earl Derr Biggers, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sax Rohmer, H. Rider Haggard, Rudyard Kipling, Edgar Rice Bourroughs and Robert Louis Stevenson are agency favorites. More recent authors to look to would be the late Elizabeth Peters and Anne Rice, Laurie King, Wilbur Smith and Preston & Childs. Look to these authors with a creative attitude and current-thinking and you'll have something.

30 Plus years within the publishing industry in virtually all areas including, editorial, product development, sales, rep management, fulfillment and distribution, and executive management. I've been a accounting exec at major and minor imprints, President/Publisher of business books, a writer, and an entrepreneur. All these things make for an agent that looks to commercial projects with a literary attitude. MY partner is an award-winning author, Professor of creative Writing at Drexel and Temple Universities and is well positioned to help guide our authors. Neither of us are proof-readers it's up to the author to clean up their submissions before forwarding.

Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye, Turkish Rights
I am currently the personal representative of her Excellency Lamees Alhassar, a unique author who to date has over one-hundred works in print and is known in middle eastern literary circles as “the Jewel of Arabia”. She had written and published several titles in the areas of fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books and materials. Her focus has been in the genres of paranormal, and sci fi novels, and short stories.

We are presenting four such stories that we think would be ideal for world distribution and/or your middle eastern network:



They came from our future – human beings very much like us. They came to WARN us! They came with a promise to make things better, and we believed. In a story set in the distant future, Planet Earth is visited by strangers from Planet Xanadu, claiming to have been sent by our own future selves to warn present-day Earth of the dangers that lie ahead. After the initial shock and disbelief, followed by much debate, the world’s leaders agree to put their faith in these Future People, with the hope that they can help to avoid impending disaster and save Planet Earth and its inhabitants. But they soon learn that all that glitter is not gold, and all is not as it appears! The true, horrifying agenda of the visitors’ presence on Earth eventually reveals itself – slavery. Now, it is up to a small band of determined rebels to free the slaves and salvage the future of the planet and all humanity!


Johnny Foot is a depressed and lonely man. He seems to fall into one calamity after another; missed appointments, a broken laptop, traffic tickets, dashed expectations in his romantic life… His only goal in life is to be recognized as a great writer. When Johnny’s neighborhood is flooded by torrential rain, a box is washed up in his driveway. Once he pries it open, he discovers an ancient book, along with a quill pen and a bottle of ink. The book is made up of mostly blank pages, but there is a beginning of a story; a story about a planet called Mandar, located in a universe he never heard of, where everything is perfect, and everyone is happy. In his desolated state of mind, he picks up the quill pen and dips it in the ink. He starts writing, continuing the story of Mandar, but instead of the blissful existence of the previous events already written in the book, Johnny creates chaos and natural disasters; earthquakes, floods, wildfires… and even an alien invasion! Meanwhile, in the center of the universe, the actual planet, Mandar, undergoes all the tragedies Johnny is writing about. He must be stopped! The elders of the faraway planet agree, but how? Help him overcome his depression so he writes delightful stories? Or invade Earth?

They are all coming to celebrate with him his 99th Birthday, but he had a different agenda. Rosa the love of his life, his wife and oasis of hope called him in. He sat on his favorite sofa by the fireplace and thought over what he wanted to say. “I have called you all here to tell you about my life and my sin. At the same time, I have also called you here to tell you that today, I am going to die, and one of you will die with me.” A
