Located in the heart of Manhattan, Paper Over Board® in association with the Irene Goodman Literary Agency, was founded on the idea that storytelling is paramount, and that an author-centric approach is the cornerstone of our philosophy. We are relentless in our pursuit of the best deal, the perfect editor, the brightest talent and most successful book.

We represent a dynamic roster of award-winning and bestselling novelists, memoirists, journalists, political figures, parenting experts, and more. Plus, we offer top-notch ghostwriting services and life-changing classes. We also specialize in mega platform-driven four-color lifestyle books in the areas of home décor, fashion, food, travel, and wellness.

We are passionate about discovering fresh voices and cultivating long-term careers, but most of all we pride ourselves on being fierce advocates for our authors and striving for client satisfaction at every step of the publishing process.

We are committed to our work as life-long author champions and dedicated to building books as brands in new and innovative ways.

Most importantly, we love what we do, and it shines through in each and every project.
