The Agent

Hello, I'm Vanessa.

It was in secondary school where my love for writing came. I loved English and whenever it came to writing short stories I was always awarded a gold star. 

When I was in college I wanted to be a reporter, so I began volunteering with an organisation called Millennium Volunteers. I was involved in writing for their newsletter and magazine, which enhanced my report writing skills. 

I then went to university and studied Journalism, I graduated and got my Bachelor’s Art degree in the year 2004. That was the proudest moment in my mother’s life seeing her daughter with a degree. 

After university I had a change of heart I wanted to get into public relations as I felt that career suited me better as a person and I would be successful in this industry more than being a reporter. It took me almost a year to get a job in public relations it seemed at the time no company wanted to hire graduates, I was grateful for the job I got as an Public Relations Assistant within a charity organisation. I enjoyed this job I helped organised events, write press releases, and collated press cuttings. 

I wrote my first book called Don’t Look Back-The Harmful Consequences of Backsliding. This was published in 2010 and sold a few thousand copies. Other than writing a book I began to write for on line magazines and interviewed best selling and award winning authors such as Judy Baer, Babbie Mason, and Tricia Goyer. 

But my passion for helping aspiring authors came when my friend Yvonne Ellis asked me to help her with her book. I read her manuscript, edit, provided her with a publisher, her book has been a bestseller she has been on television and radio. I helped another author publicise her book and she received full page coverage in a local newspaper, I loved this so much that I decided to be a Literary Agent. This is my God given destiny.

I worked with agent Pauline Barnes and after three years I decided to venture out on my own. This is how The Authors Care Services began. I give God the Glory.

We represent non-fiction and fiction. 

For non-fiction this includes, bible studies and Christian based testimonial memoirs. You must also be established and have a strong platform to submit a memoir. Occasionally we do represent non-fiction that is not Christian based such as motivational, business books, or educational books, again having a strong platform is important. 

We represent Christian themed allegory type manuscripts, and edgy Christian fiction. Please refrain from using obscene language within the manuscript. Please no exotic or dark paranormal scripts. We also represent children's and young adult fiction which have positive messages to bring.

Due to the volume of submissions, it is not always possible to respond to each person. If you don't hear from us within eight weeks, then you have not been selected onto the next stage, and we pray for your success elsewhere. If you are selected onto the next stage, your manuscripts must be polished. I would advise to get your work checked by some beta readers, who are not friends or family, or a professional development editor. Please double check for spelling and grammatical errors.

We are seeking seasoned and established clients. Opening submission time for new authors will be between January-March. It is important that authors are committed to marketing both long and short term.
