Donnie Marsh

Agency: Absolute Literary Group

Please pay a great deal of attention to the genres/areas I have listed for representation. Top priority: memoirs. Do not send materials if your work doesn't fit that for which I am looking. I do NOT handle TV/movie scripts.
Updated June 24, 2009: I prefer to receive *both* a query and the first five pages of the manuscript simultaneously. I don't much care for query letters but they are needed for our book proposal foundation so I generally keep them to the side and read the entire manuscript.
I offer a written contract binding for two years and my commission rate is 15% domestic, 20% foreign.
Please send query letter, first five pages of your manuscript and SASE (if you want materials returned):
Absolute Literary Group
3711 Daisy Avenue
Suite 1
Cleveland, Ohio 44109

Tip: If you are done with your book, write another.

My response time is four to six weeks. Due to my current workload, I am not taking on any new clients until October 2009 but you may still submit materials so that I have them.
