Hartline Literary Agency
123 Queenston Drive
Pittsburgh, PA 15235
Hartline is one of the most established literary agencies serving the Christian book market and it now works in the general book market as well.
Linda Glaz is the newest member of the team. Linda is an experienced editor, reviewer and writer, and for a couple of years was a final reader for Wild Rose Press, then for White Rose Publishing, all the while reviewing for online sites. She has worked the last couple of years as an editorial assistant for Hartline Agent Terry Burns. She was a judge for the Genesis contest for the American Christian Fiction Writers, a judge for the Emily Award for the West Houston Chapter of the Romance Writers of America, and on the faculty for Faithwriters.com annual conference in 2010 and 2011.
“I don’t connect with a lot of nonfiction,” says Linda, “but would always be happy to have peek. However, if you’ve got a great romance, either contemporary, suspense, or historic, you’ll probably make me happy. Please no fantasy, sci-fi, or children’s. And any other genre, if well-written, will certainly get my notice. Well-written…well-written…well-written. I’m not choosy as long as it’s …well-written.”

Even for fiction, Hartline requests a full proposal, including cover letter, “sell sheet,” bio, 1 – 3 page synopsis, market analysis, competitive analysis, marketing strategy, history of the manuscript, and the first three chapters. Full submission guidelines here.
