Hartline is one of the most established literary agencies serving the Christian book market and now works in the general book market as well. Over the years this has allowed us to build valuable relationships with editors which helps us guide your work to the appropriate market.
Hartline Literary Agency strives to be accessible. Our brand is “The Agency with Heart.” Our clients often tell us that we are friendly and service-oriented, and that they enjoy being represented by Hartline. We’re proud of our reputation, and also of the rapport we’ve built with major publishers.
Diana Flegal has been an agent with Hartline Literary Agency for eleven years. She represents mainstream and inspirational titles, fiction and nonfiction, but nothing that conflicts with the Christian Worldview. She is currently looking for nonfiction authors with a substantial platform, as well as outstanding contemporary women’s fiction, issue fiction, and formula romance.
When she is not reading submissions or stealing away with a recreational read, she is hiking in the mountains, or kayaking the many lakes of her home state, North Carolina.
The Agent Author Relationship
Do I need an agent? If so, when do I need one? What does an agent do? And…what should I do that an agent won’t? Understanding the relationship between the author and agent is paramount to a successful career. In this class, you will learn what to expect and what is expected of you as an author. A question and answer time will end the workshop and a writer’s resource list will be offered.
