the feldstein agency
Literary Agents and Publishing Consultants
The Feldstein Agency combines the talent and experience of Susan (née Dalzell) Feldstein and Paul Feldstein, who together have worked for over 50 years in the book trade in both the U.K. and the U.S. Susan and Paul have complementary skills in publishing - Susan in commissioning, editorial and rights, and Paul in management, sales and marketing, and finance and distribution - meaning that the Feldstein Agency can provide a service in each specific area which is informed by an in-depth understanding of the publishing process as a whole. Such comprehensive industry experience also means that, if required, we are able to follow through any given project from conception to sales and distribution.
Since Paul had been largely based in the U.S. and Susan in the U.K. and Ireland, they can offer between them an extensive knowledge of the book trade in both of these major markets, and an impressive, wide-ranging network of key publishing and trade contacts in each territory. Paul's track record in the sales and distribution of U.K. books in the U.S. is second to none, and he has a unique knowledge of both the UK and U.S. publishing scene.
Our mission is to provide a flexible, reliable service with an exceptional degree of client responsiveness. We combine attention to fine detail with the ability to think laterally and come up with creative solutions. Authors will appreciate our personal approach and our emphasis on quality relationships. Publishers will value our speed of response, our market knowledge and professional know-how, and our commitment to meeting the tightest of deadlines.
