Why Work with Us

Deborah Herman has been a publishing industry insider for over 25 years. Herman began as an author and then a literary agent to learn the business side of how books go from idea to shelves. Through his literary agency, her husband, Jeff Herman, has sold over 1,000 books to traditional publishers, thirteen of which were written by Deborah.  During her time with the agency, Deborah reviewed thousands of submissions, curated titles, and helped develop them for submission to publishers.

Deborah is a bestselling author in her own right aside from having a Juris Doctorate Degree combined with a Masters Degree in Journalism. As if that wasn’t enough, Deborah took advanced MBA level training at Rutgers through their mini MBA program in Digital Marketing Strategy, Social Media Strategy, and Entrepreneurship. In 2015, Deborah branched away from the literary agent side to assist writers in achieving publishing success with a system that works.
