About Us

We are a Christian based literary agency who understands that the book process can be very overwhelming especially if it’s your first time entering into the publishing industry.

Our aim is to help build, guide and assist authors in their career. Together with prayer and working as a team we believe you will be successful, there are no underachievers in this agency. We want
 to have a long life partnership with our authors both aspiring and established.

In return we want serious aspiring and seasoned authors. Writers who are dedicated and committed to their project, who won’t give up on the first hurdle.  No time wasters please. 

For the publisher:-  We understand that it is a costly business to print books and yes, our new authors know that you will be taking a risk on them. That is why we will work hard on promoting the books.

Many of the authors work on marketing themselves before publication building up their credibility, fan base, and to give back to others. They have had great accomplishments doing this.

We are not lazy and are very grateful for your investment. Our aim is to work with you to make the product a success.

About the Agent

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 Barns 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.

Submission Guidelines

We represent non-fiction and fiction authors. You must have strong writing skills.

For non-fiction this includes, bible studies and memoirs. At some point of your story, your memoir must glorify God. You must also be established and have a strong platform to submit a memoir.

We represent Christian themed allegory type manuscripts. Please refrain from using obscene language within the manuscript, and no exotic or dark paranormal scripts.

Fiction:- Please email a query letter, attached with a synopsis, blurb, and three sample chapters. The query must include any previous publications, biography, and marketing plans. 

Non Fiction:- Please email a query letter, attached with a book proposal, CV/Resume, and three sample chapters. The book proposal must include chapter outlines, your biography, who is your competition, and what will motivate people to buy your book.

If you are unsure on how to write a book proposal or even an synopsis, there is plenty of information online that can guide you. Please do not rush these, as we are look for high quality and professionalism. 

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.

Authors must have strong long term marketing skills or a vast platform already, having good credibility in their field. In this industry be prepared to sell yourself, and not just via social networking sites. I repeat,this must not be done as a one-off, marketing is continuous.

Some of my authors have never done marketing before and now they are a pro arranging speaking engagements, being on radio, and writing for magazines. They have really built up themselves and credibility so no excuses. Also market to give back and don't just think about book sales what could you do to encourage someone. 

Most importantly please pray before you submit to us, it is important that you are guided by the Lord before you make your decision. Please email your query and attachments to vanessa@theauthorscare.co.uk. We do consider simultaneous submissions, however please do inform us of this in your email, and to let us know if you have been selected elsewhere. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Magnify The Lord

Are You Leaning to Your Own Understanding?


On the top of my business logo, has the scripture verse proverbs 3:5-6. "Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths." (AMP)


This scripture is held close to my heart, why? Because I know without Gods guidance, without leaning to my own understanding both my business and personal circumstances wouldn't have flourished like it has today.

Returning To The Heart of Worship

John 4:24 Its who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. Thats the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration. (MSG)

Worship is a topic that is often discussed. But what is not often mentioned is worship in spirit and truth, the kind of people that the Father is looking out for.

Will You Still Be Fruitful In Your Success? 

I’m not talking about material success, rather your attitude. When God opens the door to your ‘big break’, will you still maintain or strive for the fruit of the Spirit to be manifested in your life?

‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.’ Galatians 5:22

When we first start something it could be a business, book, or a church, we tend to make promises such as ‘Lord if you bless me I will never forget you,’ or ‘I promise I will remain kind humble and loving.’
Then the big break comes and guest what? All those promises seemed to have been long forgotten. We tend to become more money orientated thinking we can treat people anyhow.

The Quiet Times

There are times in our lives when we yearn for quiet times. Especially with us women where there is a busy household, we desire our me times just to have some peace and calmness.

But there are also circumstances when we do not want any quiet times. If you are a writer you would long to receive that phone call from an agent to inform of a book deal. Maybe your house has been on the market for months. You so need that we found a buyer call, whatever it maybe there are times when we don't want any stillness. Read more: The Quiet Times





Don't get stuck behind the four walls

There are Christians who believe their ministry is only for their local church therefore that is where they will only operate that ministry. Well have I got news for you! God can use us anywhere and not just behind the four walls. In the above scripture the voice of the Lord is saying “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? Like Isaiah our response should be “Here I am. Send me!” Read more Dont get stuck behind the four walls
