Look, Up In The Sky, It’s A Superagency!

We don’t know where we read it first — the news was flying fast and furious this weekend — but there’s a new superagency out there. Scott Hoffman, from PMA Lit & Film, Jeff Kleinman, from Graybill & English, and Paige Wheeler, from the Creative Media Agency, have joined forces to create Folio Literary Management.
The trio’s mission is simple. In addition to the traditional work done by agents, they work beyond the publication date (now that’s what we call earning that 15%):

Folio picks up where major publishers leave off. We provide regional and local publicity that can dramatically expand an author’s profile and increase sales. We serve as a full-service speakers’ bureau, finding venues and audiences for our authors of both fiction and non-fiction. And we serve as licensing agents, finding new and innovative ways to leverage our clients’ work and develop new income streams—all while maintaining the integrity of their original artistic vision. And that’s just the beginning.

A note on superagencies — do not expect leaping tall buildings, swinging carefree through urban canyons, or bulletproof capes. Those are myths. Or so we’ve been assured; it’s not like they’re going to admit to x-ray vision anyway.
Vitals: Folio Literary Management, 240 W 35th Street, Suite 500, New York, NY 10001; Folio Literary Management, 1627 K Street NW, Suite 1200, Washington, DC 20006.
