Trident Media Group is a large New York agency, one of the largest and most diversified agencies in the world. Trident represents over 700 authors in a range of genres of fiction and nonfiction, many of whom have appeared on the New York Times Best Sellers Lists and have won major awards and prizes. For six consecutive years, Publishers Market Place has ranked Trident number one for sales in North America.

At Trident Media Group, Alexander Slater has been promoted to domestic agent, and he will focus on children's, middle grade and YA authors.

Previously (since 2010), Alex was a foreign rights agent for Trident, representing the company's children, middle grade and yound adult authors in many licensing arrangements in the global marketplace for translation and in the English language in the U.K., having placed books with publishers in dozens of countries. Alex was Trident's representative at the Bologna Children's Book Fair in Italy, as well as the broader-based London and Frankfurt book fairs. His experience in representing fiction in these areas showed him what elements in stories work well, and how to maximize the value of what an author has created.

Alex plans to, "Look for stories that will rise above the rest with characters that will be remembered well past childhood, with the potential to cross over to other media and formats," such as programming, games, motion pictures and merchandise.
