OCEANVIEW PUBLISHING ENTERS INTO REPRESENTATION AGREEMENT WITH WRITER’S HOUSE, ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S PREEMINENT LITERARY AGENCIES

 

IPSWICH, MASS (rushprnews) 06/13/2006 – Oceanview Publishing has entered into an agreement with Writers House, one of the country’s preeminent literary agencies. Writers House will handle domestic rights representation for the Oceanview catalog, which includes Dr. Patricia Gussin’s Shadow of Death, Ward Larsen’s The Perfect Assassin, as well as forthcoming releases from acclaimed novelist Don Bruns, respected medical researcher Dr. Bob Gussin, and award-winning writer Martha Powers.

Created to help both new and established authors find a place and a voice in mainstream publishing, Oceanview Publishing’s mission is two-fold: to publish great books and to support and develop its stable of writers. Based on a traditional publishing model, Oceanview offers its authors advances and royalties, Susan Greger, President of Oceanview, added, “We think the real key to our success lies in nurturing and developing our writers. We have the financial backing to support our authors, and have put in place a plan to maximize each book’s exposure. We are steadfast in our commitment to the lasting success of our writers.”

The affiliation with Writers House, says Greger, furthers the Oceanview mission:  “We are thrilled with our affiliation with Writers House. The principals and agents at Writers House share our philosophy that individual client attention is a cornerstone of success. We look forward to working with a company whose mission so closely parallels our own. We are confident that our existing authors, as well as future authors, will benefit immensely from representation by Writers House.”

One of the largest literary agencies in the world, Writers House was founded in 1973 by Al Zuckerman, a novelist, TV writer, and teacher of playwriting at Yale. Writers House offers the full service benefits of foreign and sub rights departments as well as a four person accounting and royalty staff and is home to 11 agents and several rising junior agents. Moreover, many of the Writers House agents and clients, have been with the company for more than 20 years.

Michele Rubin, Senior Agent at Writers House, stated, “The mission of Writers House is to create a name that reflects our vision for our authors and our company. Our goals, like the goals of Oceanview Publishing, are long term and we look forward to a lengthy,  satisfying, and prosperous relationship with Oceanview. Oceanview’s catalog truly exemplifies the outstanding contributions from independent presses today.”
