AGENTS AND MANAGERS
If you're a literary agent or manager and could use our help
perfecting your clients' projects for publication and/or production,
we'd love to work with you because we're good at fixing stories
that aren't working yet.
Writer's Lifeline, Inc., based on experience, can add potentially
multi-million dollar value to projects that you haven't been
able to sell, or wouldn't consider representing, because of
the "shape" they're in.
In one case, we turned a great idea for a novel into
a $1.1 million preemptive film deal, then re-edited the MS
and auctioned it for $2.2 million. In another, we took a novel
MS that had been shopped to publishers and production companies,
worked on it for nine months, then changed the name and sold
it for $750,000!
When we receive the referral from you, we will work
out our relationship (including referral fees, where appropriate)--which
can also involve having our parent company AEI, Inc. co-rep the work with you.
