Principled Publishing and Agent Services
Representing Authors and Film Makers Across the United States
Whether you are an established writer or a first-time author, maneuvering through the maze of the publishing industry can be a challenging task. Winters & King, Inc. has helped acclaimed authors and film makers obtain lucrative publishing deals. Our legal experience and knowledge of the publishing industry has allowed us to build an impressive record of success that includes over 35 books on the New York Times Best Seller list and successful movies such as A Christmas Candle, Home Run, and One Night with the King.
Guidance through the entire publishing process
Negotiating publishing contracts can be a complex process involving royalties, advances, marketing and editing. Even the most experienced writers can benefit greatly by having someone with intimate knowledge of the book world help them through the process.
Winters & King, Inc. has represented numerous acclaimed authors and brokered book deals with major publishers, including:
- Baker Books
- Bethany House Publishers
- Penguin Putnam
- Random House
- Simon & Schuster
- Thomas Nelson
Many times a major publisher is not the best option for an author. To address these situations we have developed our own separate publishing company Winters Publishing Group (WPG). WPG assists with all aspects of a new book including editing, artwork, layout and advertising. The thing that sets WPG apart is its access to nationwide distribution. WPG has been able to leverage its relationships from 30 years in the publishing industry to bring big time distribution to lesser known authors. WPG also has famous authors opting to go through WPG rather than traditional publishing houses because of the higher royalty rates WPG is able to pay without sacrificing distribution.
Our firm understands that negotiating with publishers can seem like a never-ending process and quickly leave you feeling intimidated and confused. We are dedicated to leveling the playing field for our clients. We want to help tell your story on your own terms and ensure that you receive the right benefits for your hard work.
If you have a story to tell or a message to spread, we would be honored to help you do it. Our connections and experience in the publishing industry are a valuable asset to any author and can help you get the publishing deal you deserve.
