Vanessa Grossett | United Kingdom | Build Meaningful Relationships

Literary & Talent Manager @ The Author's Care Agency Ltd

My name is Vanessa, and I serve as a Literary Manager at The Authors Care Agency Ltd. While many are familiar with the term "agent," I prefer "manager" as it encapsulates the breadth of my responsibilities. In addition to selling manuscripts on behalf of my authors, I meticulously review contracts, promote their books, ensure their well-being, and monitor manuscript deadlines for publishers. Occasionally, I provide guidance and assistance to individuals seeking advice on self-publishing and career management. The role is dynamic, particularly with the rise of hybrid publishing. Among my esteemed authors are USA Today bestselling author Parker J. Cole, who specializes in historical fiction for Mills and Boon Harlequin Historical, as well as the versatile musician and former X Factor finalist Lloyd Wade. Additionally, I represent Marie Gludd, known for her poignant everyday life short stories, with more talented authors joining the roster continuously.

In addition to my role as a Literary Manager, I contribute articles to the multi-award-winning Keep the Faith Magazine, focusing on the publishing industry. My journey into literary management was not conventional. Initially pursuing a degree in journalism, I later explored public relations before finding my true passion in the publishing industry. Despite my initial career aspirations, a redirection led me to establish The Authors Care Agency Ltd.

I attribute this redirection to divine intervention, as it has allowed me to connect with exceptional authors and build meaningful relationships. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason, and I am grateful for the opportunities that have come my way.

The name "Authors Care Agency" reflects our commitment to valuing and supporting authors. I prioritize fostering strong, long-term relationships with my authors, believing that mutual respect and connection are essential from the outset. Looking ahead, I aspire to expand into other areas of management beyond book writing, as evidenced by the recent interest from screenplay writers and those in public relations.
