“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!”

Bonnie MacBird, Art in the Blood, (HarperCollins UK, September 2015), Unquiet Spirits (HarperCollins UK, October 2017), and The Devil's Due (HarperCollins UK, October 2019)

“Linda Langton is the consummate literary agent.  She cares about the written word and genuinely respects writers. Her mission is to help them on their journey. She’s present, persistent, and she delivers!  I am most fortunate to have her representing me!”

Phyllis Melhado, The Spa at Lavender Lane , (Black Rose Writing, 2020)

“Thank you Linda first of all for taking me on as your client and then for the resources that you provided in creating a proposal that sold the book in our first round. You exemplified the tenants of my book, finding a balance of Power (competency), Heart (passion) and Mindfulness (strategy) in your role as my agent. Thank you, Linda you are the best literary agent!”

Sam Alibrando, Ph.D., author of The Three Dimensions of Emotion: Finding the Balance of Power, Heart and Mindfulness in All Your Relationships, (Career Press, 2016)

“I am happy to add my cheers to the many accolades Linda Langton receives from the writers she represents. Having worked with her now spanning 15 years, I can attest that Linda is sharp as a whip; she knows her stuff; and she is a go-getter. I can’t imagine three qualities more prized by any author seeking an agent.”

Dana Huntley, America’s Forgotten Colonial History , (Lyons Press, 2019)

“Superwoman. That is my nickname for Linda (literary agent). 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.”

Ashley Fontainne, author of Marriage Made Me Do It , (HarperCollins UK, Septembr 2017)

“As a new author of true crime, I found it difficult navigating through the book proposal process and was less than confident when I began submitting my proposal to various agents.  I quickly received two offers of representation, and I chose Langton’s International because of Linda’s very timely and professional response to my query.  Her record in the publishing world speaks for itself.  Well positioned within the industry, she is considered a “super agent”, and I’m excited to be a part of her team.  I trusted in Linda’s ability to sign me with a publisher just as she trusted in my ability as a new author.  She has answered each question I’ve had along the way, and I’m looking forward to working with her as my book comes to fruition.  Thank you Linda.”

Rodney Sadler, Killing Women: The True Story of a Michigan Serial Killer, (Wildblue Press, 2020)

“Publishing fiction is like trying to light a wet cigarette in a typhoon during an earthquake. Linda Langton is a most resourceful and savvy agent who will help you weather the storm. We commend her to you without reservation.”

Brad Chisholm and Claire Kim, K-Town Confidential and Kat & Maus, (Black Rose Writing, 2018)

“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.”

Judith Aller, Trumbo , (Grand Central Publishing, November 2015)

“I am one of the most fortunate persons on planet Earth to have met and been represented by Linda Langton for my personal growth and development book, Your Life Path. Linda has been a tremendous inspiration throughout three years of revising and developing the book and book proposal. She is one of the most uplifting, positive-minded, and excellence-oriented people I will ever meet, and I feel for her a deep debt of gratitude and admiration as we progress toward publication of my own labor of love. Thank you, Linda (literary agent), for all your help as we progress to the next stages of my publication journey.”

Linda Watts, author of Your Life Path , (Skyhorse, 2017)

“Thank you Linda first of all for taking me on as your client and then for the resources that you provided in creating a proposal that sold the book in our first round. You exemplified the tenants of my book, finding a balance of Power (competency), Heart (passion) and Mindfulness (strategy) in your role as my agent. Thank you, Linda!”
