Marly Rusoff Literary Agency
Our literary agency represents a select group of quality
fiction and non-fiction writers. Our clients include award-winning and
best-selling authors, and while we take delight in discovering new
talent, we are particularly interested in helping established writers
expand readership and develop their careers.
NOTE: At this time our site does not reflect our latest deals, books, reviews and/or news. It is under a major overhaul necessary to make it easily accessible from smart phones and various tablets and to give our authors greater exposure.
We expected to have it operational by the end of 2017 but we are running late due to ten thousands or so HTML files needed to be transferred. Please bear with us...
