Purpose Statement


Hartline Literary Agency seeks to find the finest in new and established authors. Our common goal is to help authors grow and develop their careers. Our agents work with a variety of styles, genres and voices in our effort to place quality books that readers will find greatly enjoyable and significant.

Since 1992 Hartline Literary Agency has enjoyed success in the Christian market representing primarily authors who specifically write for the Christian market. We are also very open to representing General Market books that do not conflict with traditional Christian values.



Hartline Literary agency is one of longest established agencies serving the Christian book community and though we specialize in that market we do work with general interest books as well. Several of our agents have over twenty years in the publishing industry, experience that enables us to better serve our clients.
