Testimonials for the Agency
Bonnie MacBird, Art in the Blood (HarperCollins UK, September 2015) and Unquiet Spirits (HarperCollins UK, October 2017) "Linda Langton did a marvelous job as my literary agent in selling my book series Art in the Blood: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure to HarperCollins. As a first time novelist, I needed guidance on the submission and negotiation process and her experience, kindness and communication talent made all of this understandable and smooth. She was creative in her approach, wise in her selection, and has managed to place this book in excellent hands. What a pleasure it has been to be in such expert hands. Any author would be lucky to work with her. Thank you, Linda!"
Ashley Fontainne, author of Marriage Made Me Do It (HarperCollins UK, Septembr 2017) "Superwoman. That is my nickname for Linda. She went above and beyond the duties of an agent. She took time to assist me from start to finish in a world I'm unfamiliar with, encouraging me throughout the entire process, and helped me achieve a dream I've had for years. To become a commercially published author. Her cape is in the mail."
Judith Aller, Trumbo (Grand Central Publishing, November 2015)
"Smart, honest, perceptive and persistent, Linda Langton herself is keenly aware of her obligation to her clients, and Langtons International Agency is a rare find for any author. Why? Because the combination of marketing and sales is the key to understanding an author's needs in the publishing world of today. And Langtons International Agency has it all right on the money, marketing experience and the instinct in knowing where a book belongs."
Robert Parker, author of A Wanted Man (Endeavour Press, 2017)
"Since day one, working with Linda and everyone at Langtons International Agency has been a dream. She has been such a fantastic mentor, motivator, guardian angel, and friend, and I feel so lucky to be able to work with her. I am a better writer simply because of Linda, and the chance to work with Langtons has been the best thing, bar none, that has happened to my writing career."
