Literary Agents Who Represent Christian Authors

This is as much for my benefit as anyone else. Michael Hyatt posted a blog article–I don’t know when–listing literary agents who represent Christians. Not all the agents on the list are themselves Christians, but they all represent Christian literature. Some, like Rachelle Gardner, represent both Christian and non-Christian. Anyway, here’s the link to the article. I hope it is useful to you. And thanks to Michael for gathering this information!

    Hi, my name is Maddie Marcarelli and I am 18 years old. I have written a book called The Journey The Only Survivors (if you’d like to know about it, I can give you my synopsis) and it is a trilogy. I have found a few self publishers that want to publish my book, but I’ve been told by Karen Kingsbury that I should look for a literary agent instead. So, here I am. Thank you for taking your time to read this email- I made it small on purpose, because I know you must get several emails a day. God bless and I hope you email me back soon.

There’s nothing wrong with self-publishing–it’s just a different road to the same goal, and both kinds of publishing have their pros and cons. Before you make a firm decision on either path, I recommend you read up on each and decide what you want for your book, and for your career as a writer. Literary agent Rachelle Gardner has some good thoughts about self-publishing on her blog (–she’s even written a book on the whole to-self-pub-or-not-to-self-pub question. I also recommend you poke around Janet Reid’s blog, too. She has written on this topic, and she has a lot of great advice about publishing as a whole (

      I hope this is helpful to you, Maddie! 🙂
