We have separated out the category of writing and publishing from general reference because we are also a publisher. Deborah Herman and Jeff Herman have been icons in the publishing industry for over 25 years. The Jeff Herman Agency is one of the top literary agencies specializing in nonfiction books. Deborah Herman is the author of 13 books and has been curating titles for the agency for many years before becoming an independent publisher with MPM. Together they have written some of the most important books for writers. “Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents” combined with “Write the Perfect Book Proposal,” has launched innumerable successful writing careers. We share the books we have written along with other books we highly recommend for writers seeking publication of their manuscripts.
