CSG LITERARY PARTNERS, founded by Steve Harris, and MDM MANAGEMENT, founded by Michele Martin, are agencies specializing in quality non-fiction. With over four decades of publishing expertise, we focus on helping authors to market and promote their books and themselves.  We partner with authors through all stages of the publishing process, from writing a book proposal to marketing and publicity once their books are published.


Our strength is in helping authors develop quality proposals, to acquire and negotiate publishing contracts on their behalf, and to provide general management of both the books and the author's writing career. 


We specialize in guiding the careers of our authors in a changing literary landscape.  Our strong industry contacts allow us to pair each book and author with the perfect editor and publisher, maintaining strong and involved relationships with our authors and their works throughout the entire publishing process.  


Our authors are always a phone call or an email away, and they are kept completely up-to-date in real time. We pride ourselves on being engaged partners with our clients.
