"It was more of an opportunity than a decision. When Thought I Knew You became so successful, I was approached by my agent, Mark Gottlieb and had a mostly finished manuscript ready to go. Again, star alignment. He loved Vanishing and hit the submissions very hard. It sold pretty quickly and I think I’ve found the absolute most perfect home for me at Atria. I could not be more thrilled with the cover, the final product (I say this as I should be working on edits and am instead finishing this interview!), my editors notes and suggestions. Everything has felt very free and very fun." —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of THE VANISHING YEAR, Atria Books
"Thanks, Mark! ...I feel very fortunate that we are working together." —Christopher Brown, World Fantasy Award-nominated author of TROPIC OF KANSAS, Harper Voyager

"…an island of calm and order. He is such a gentleman. He listened, asked perceptive questions, and then requested the full manuscript. It happened very quickly and with absolute equanimity on his part. Yes, in an almost miraculous eight weeks, Mark sold the book to Kensington. He was instrumental in handling contractual details and in negotiating a few items that are of real importance to me, such as cover design and the voice of the audio edition narrator. The contract itself is nineteen pages long! Mark's help has been invaluable. I am deeply grateful." —Diane C. McPhail, author of THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER, Kensington Books

"After taking a lot of deep breaths, and with shaking hands, I emailed my entire manuscript to Mark Gottlieb…who took the weekend off to read it…by Sunday afternoon, Mark had finished reading my manuscript and sent me another email, this one indicating that he would like to speak with me regarding representation. Within four months, Mark had sold THE DRAGON’S LEGACY in a three-book-deal to Titan Books; it will be released in hardcover Spring 2017. Less than a year later, my rockstar agent sold my second book, DAUGHTER OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN, also to Steve Saffel of Titan Books in a two-book deal, also set to be released Spring 2017. Write a good book, write a good query letter, do your homework. And dare to dream big." —Deborah A. Wolf, author of THE DRAGON'S LEGACY and DAUGHTER OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN, Titan Books

"…I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to meet… You helped make [my] trip even more memorable… your kindness and the genuineness with which you presented yourself… I already knew I was lucky to have you as a literary agent based on metrics and all your success; but to find a successful agent who also seems to be a decent human is a rare dream come true." —James Wade, author of ALL THINGS LEFT WILD, Blackstone Publishing
