Please do your best to select the nearest existing specific role; "Other" should be your last resort. You will later be able to add a more descriptive secondary role.
Your role is used for several purposes. It will appear on your personal Publishers Marketplace Web page (should you create one). And if you do create a Marketplace page, your role will factor into search results to help visitors home in on the information they're looking for. Your role is also used to customize certain pages to best suit your needs.
Once you've registered, you'll be able to add a second role (category) through your Publishers Marketplace Account page.

“Publishers Marketplace gives you access to a database of every editor, every agent, every merger, and (almost) every deal that occurs in the mainstream publishing world. If you want to be an agent, author, editor, or other type of publishing professional, it's worth every penny. I have subscribed to Publishers Marketplace without break for the past twelve years and I've never gone a day without checking it once. (OK, maybe on my wedding day.) (Probably.)”

Plus, you’ll get their news and analysis emailed to you each weekday, which will teach you SO much about the publishing industry. What’s especially fun is seeing all the debut novels that are being sold—proof that people like you do get published!”

What Editors Do: The Art, Craft
& Business of Book Editing

Edited by Peter Ginna, former publishing director at Bloomsbury Press

“Publishers Marketplace, with its database of deals, is probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date way of seeing who agents are representing and how active they are.... A subscription doesn’t cost much and is worth the investment for any writer trying to land an agent.”

— Kirby Kim
Literary Agent, Janklow & Nesbit

“Publishers Marketplace is by far the most influential web site on publishing. If you’re looking for an agent you must combine other information and evaluation you might have obtained from other good sources with the real situation in the marketplace that this site offers you through its Top Dealmakers feature and much more.… In our opinion this is the best single source for publishing information.”
