Gottlieb on Re-Engineering The Role of Literary Agents | DBW Video

Since large corporations [publishers] took them over and are expecting a much higher profit margin for the sale of the book, so the matrix has been changing…As agents we’re impacted by what happens in the publisher acquisition and retail space, no matter what our own ethos is and no matter what we like to do as an agency, or how we like to perform as an agency. However, that doesn’t stop us from trying our best within the space at it exists today in supporting authors we represent, and getting them to a new and better place each time a new book comes out. ~ Robert Gottlieb, Chairman of Trident Media Group
