Write-to-Publish Faculty Interview: Cyle Young, Hartline Literary and Elective Course Instructor

Tell us about Hartline Literary.

Hartline is one of the most established literary agencies serving the Christian book market and now works in the general book market as well. Over the years this has allowed us to build valuable relationships with editors, which helps us guide your work to the appropriate market.
We work with many award winning authors and seek to add both published and promising new authors to our list. Our core strength is representing inspirational fiction and non-fiction books for adults. We do NOT market children’s books, screenplays, scripts, poetry, or magazine articles. We represent most genres in inspirational or commercial fiction except science fiction and fantasy. We are now also working with Amazon through the White Glove Program to help our clients with self-publishing. 

How can a writer best prepare for an appointment with you?

Be prepared. Know your book and know why your book needs to exist. Let your writing speak for itself. Sell me on your plot and your drive to improve and excel as an author.
