There are different types of business books, and literary agents for business authors may only specialize in specific types. When looking for literary agents for business authors, it is important to make sure they specialize in the type of book the author wrote.  A popular type of business book are how-to business books. These types of business books teach business people and entrepreneurs how to build and grow their businesses by sharing tips and highlights. Many authors of business how-to books often structure their books similarly, with specific steps, examples, and pictures to demonstrate the steps. A literary agent for business authors can help the author and can use the success of the author’s program to sell the book.


Another type of business book is a professional business memoir. These types of business books have inspirational stories. While the author may not have a specific guide to instruct the readers, they share their own experiences and the story of their success to encourage other readers. A memoir business book will take on more of a narrative form, as the author will share stories of their life and career. Some business memoirs sold by business literary agents will share a behind the scenes look into famous companies, while others focus more on the author’s personal journey and accomplishments. A business memoir should share a unique experience for a literary agent for business authors to gain interest.

This gives them the credibility to share their advice and be published.
