A self-described "literary change agent," April Eberhardt founded her own agency in order to assist and advise authors as they navigate the increasingly complex world of publishing. As readers and publishers choose among the many ways literature is being delivered in the new millennium, authors need a literary agent who understands both the traditional and electronic marketplaces, along with the evolving options for agent-assisted independent publishing.

April works with serious authors who recognize the need for professional support, and the importance of publishing in the highest-quality way, be it traditionally or independently. Agent-vetted manuscripts help independently-published authors stand out from the millions of others, and contribute to raising the bar for independent publishing, garnering recognition and sales for those authors who understand and commit to "self-publishing, done right."

First priority will be given to manuscripts pitched in person at literary conferences, events and symposia, including the following venues in 2015: San Miguel Writers' Conference, Mexico; Geneva Writers' Group, Switzerland; Madison Writers' Institute, Wisconsin; Muse & the Marketplace, Boston; Florence Cultural Foundation, Italy; American Library in Paris; International Women's Writing Guild Conference, New York; Pacific Northwest Writers Conference, Seattle; Writer's Digest Conference, New York; Cape Code Writers Conference, Massachusetts; Unicorn Writers' Conference, New York; Houston Writers Guild Indie Conference, Texas; and Frankfurt Book Fair, Germany.

We look forward to reading your best work!
