Peter and Amy Bernstein founded Bernstein Literary Agency in 2008. To date, we have worked with over 100 brilliant authors around the globe and across a wide range of subjects to get their books published, and their stories told. We typically work on non-fiction projects, but we have occasionally collaborated on children’s books, novels and cookbooks. We work with authors in all stages of their careers, from experienced, award-winning, and bestselling ones to debut writers ready to take on the world.

Our vision for our agency was to work with authors personally to understand their needs as we bring their manuscripts to fruition. As authors ourselves, we know the myriad of challenges with book publishing, and we help you navigate the literary jungle. No matter the topic, every book is about a story. We are integral in all facets of the book publishing process, from contract negotiation and royalties to writing and editing. Our goal is to maximize the value of your work by providing hands-on editorial and marketing advice as well as ancillary marketing opportunities.
