Today, the publishing industry's undergoing the most profound changes since the invention of the printing press! Say 'Good-bye' to traditional 'publishing practices' and 'business models.' Authors are no longer 'submissive' to the dictates of publishers. Emergent technologies for printed works and the skyrocketing popularity of e-books on the Internet have made this a most exciting time for new authors... And one filled with more pitfalls and traps than ever before!
CWL exists to provide new authors with what they need most... personal advice, individual attention and a comprehensive offering of support services necessary to the creation, presentation and promotion of a successful work. At CWL, candor and integrity walk hand-in-hand with practical advice based on decades of industry experience.
At CWL, our focus is primarily on new authors, who are often ignored by many agencies, despite needing the kind of services we offer the most. New authors are the persons for whom we believe we can do the most good and it's from working with them that we derive the greatest satisfaction from our efforts.
CWL accepts only works in which we're prepared to whole-heartedly invest our time and resources. The expenses associated with our services are structured to allow us to selectively address the individual needs of each author and their work. There's no 'One Size Fits All' attitude at CWL! We never charge a 'Reading Fee'... Reading's our business and we appreciate the opportunity to share in your dreams and aspirations!
Sincerely,Christine E. Wilson
If you're a first-time author, you need and deserve the attention and consideration CWL provides.
Our services are as complete as you'll find anywhere... Often more so! We're known for the courtesy, kindness and respect we employ in dealing with each and every client. One never knows who will write the next 'Best Seller'... At one time, even Charles Dickens was a 'first-time author'!
Staffed and networked to provide virtually all of the support services needed by a first-time author, we offer editing, graphics creation, editorial critique, language translation (French; Spanish), web presence, marketing guidance, creative counseling and much, much more.
We don't sell our services in 'packages' as is common with many other literary agencies. Every service we provide is separate from every other... That means you won't find yourself paying for something you didn't need or forced to accept something you didn't want.
CWL is one of the very few literary agencies that's primarily focused on 'E-book Self-Publishing.' While we continue to manage traditional printed works, we specialize in getting manuscripts into proper 'E-Book' (e-pub) formats and optimizing their compatibility with the Internet and on all mobile devices/readers.
We invite you to contact us to explore how we can help with your particular needs and intents. You'll find our staff friendly, knowledgeable and courteous.
Because we primarily work with new authors, you can be assured of our passion for searching out new literary talent and successfully presenting it!
