The Agency

Books at Present Under Consideration


Open Book Systems is more than an online bookstore--it is an Online Book Site as well, offering the spectrum of literary creation, from unpublished manuscript to bound book, and all the stages in between. To that end, as literary agents we represent authors to publishers, negotiating book contracts on their behalf and matching literary talent with publishing houses. Of course, we specialize in books and authors who want their ideas to venture beyond the boundaries of hard covers and out onto the Net. Here is a sampling of some of the authors we represent, some with links to themselves and their work.
