Welcome Existing Clients and New Friends, and thank you for visiting our page...

We are now entering the year 2018, which is proving to be yet another busy and fruitful year ahead from judging by the many new developments we planned, were scheduled and completed, 35 more film projects for the Film industry Sectors covering 2015 to 2017 period, and four currently in production makes for an exhilarating upcoming season filled with excitement and achievement for all those Authors involved.  Our Agency is continuing to experience a phenomenal influx of talented and interesting authors from all walks of life, every corner of the globe, and all manner of professions; and all of whom deserve to be noted and listed. We shall endeavor to place all our clients with suitable publishers, in an industry which has evolved into an enormously challenging and competitive market. However, we feel confident that all our clients shall indeed see publication with genuine and traditional publishing firms over the ensuing months.I would like to think that we always aim to offer talented authors opportunities which they would otherwise not be able to attain to, in an industry where both Agents and Publishers are becoming evermore overwhelmed with requests and submissions – from not only first time published authors, but veterans of the craft likewise, who are looking to spread their wings further afield and into the film industry.

Undoubtedly, the literary industry in general continues to experience predictable revolutionary processes as to how books are being published in the immediate, and  tomorrow’s future. There are more writers and aspiring innovative authors than ever before since the advent of, and constantly developing technological advances of the Internet capable sciences. New standards are being set and need to be met, which has already seen mergers of some of our renowned and most longstanding traditional publishers such as Penguin Random Group who did exactly that in 2012, now also even offering ‘self publishing packages’ for authors keen to see their name mentioned under the Penguin banner.  It seems to have paid off for the publishers (http://deadline.com/2015/03/penguin-random-house-bertelsmann-earnings-1201401793/ according to the this report.  It is also showing and reflecting the needs that are to be met by our simply embracing and adapting to new ways as to how the literary and other industries operate and function. We are now able to manage our personal and corporate communications with optimum speed. By utilizing all manner of new applications and functionality at will, enabling us to execute our marketing prowess and promotions campaigns strategies on many corporate levels in order to meet a high consumer demand. We are now able to deliver our various industry related projects and products to the world with effective proficiency, and the most evocative and thought provoking strategies than ever before, thanks to the Internet and innovative digital technologies.

Over some decades, we have had the pleasure of reviewing and assessing many hundreds of fine works that proved to be of a high standard quality literature, able to project a multitude of imagination and expression of thought. Over the upcoming weeks and months we shall be adding more published titles (still waiting patiently to be added to the listings on ourwww.gilbertliteraryagencyauthors.com  pages; depending on the amount of my own free time available, and which rests in the lap of the gods, but it shall be done.   Although not part of our normal standard services, I enjoy doing them for our clients, and is the least I can do for our authors to help them with their promotions.

(Also Refer to our ‘About Our Authors’ categories –http://gilbertliteraryagencyauthors.com/category/about-our-authors/)  We hope to be able to represent some of our best selling authors and their respective projects to the film sectors for consideration, and worthy many works prove to be, as they’re all exciting and unique story concepts I certainly haven’t see in any films yet.
