Graham Maw Christie, London, UK, was established in 2005. Our approach is collaborative, creative and market-driven. We believe a successful book starts with a brilliant proposal and that authors need someone in their corner: not just to find them the right editor but to support them during the process of writing the best book they can; through each stage of production, publicity & marketing and then long after the book has been published. We love what we do, and building good relationships with publishers and editors is at the heart of our business.
As well as supporting our authors with marketing and social media advice, we help build profiles and brands by collaborating with speaker agencies, publicists and TV producers. Our sub-agents handle representation for TV film and foreign rights.
