Dear Writers and Readers,

It is my hope that your holidays were filled with much love and hope for the future. Our industry may be uncertain, but we are all committed to the written word and how it can change lives. Transition is an inevitable part of life, and it is in this spirit that I announce that our colleague April Eberhardt will be striking out on her own.

April Eberhardt Literary will focus primarily on high-quality women's fiction, and will offer representation to authors in traditional ways, along with assistance in assessing and accessing alternative publishing channels. She can be reached at april@aprileberhardt.com. We wish her well.

Amy Burkhardt and I continue to live up to the traditions we have always felt important as agents. Nurturing writers and doing everything we can to promote their careers as the publishing industry reshapes and refines itself. IT ALWAYS HAS. I believe that books will continue to be read and treasured, along with other forms of electronic communication. We wish you the best in 2011, and know that we will be reading your work!




  1. Hello Kimberley and Amy,
    Just wanted to say Happy New Year,beginnings, aand endings. The middle will take care of itself.

  2. So thoughtful of you to give April your good wishes. It shows that you are, indeed, a kind and generous person. What a way for you to start the new year!

  3. Thank you. I look forward to you reading my material, Kimberley. Not to sound smug,but I babied it alot, very original, timely and - I've done alot of reading and never came across another like it. While it's a giant life-pizza with everything piled on top - it's a very good thing. I've sent it to only you. Mark Pound
