Sales representatives specializing in non-agents
Accept fiction and non-fiction. Your cover should include a abstract, preferably a section, but not longer than one page, plus the first thirty pages of continuously printed samples (in other words, no model sections from the beginning, mid and end). Otherwise you can just mail us a prepaid return cover for our answer.
Fiction requires you to complete the ledgers before submission. Any request for authorization for use of copyrighted materials by one of Aitken Alexander's customers should include the following information: i) headline and name of the book/material in which the excerpt in question is published; ii) length (and page reference) of this excerpt; iii) areas and languages for which a licence has been requested; iv) title/publisher/price/publication date and first edition estimate of the book/material in which the excerpt will be published; v) any other pertinent information.
Aitken Gillon established Gillon Aitken Ltd. in 1976. Former Viking and Macmillan editor Clare Alexander entered the firm in 1998 and in 2005 the name of the firm was renamed Aitken Alexander Associates. Andrew Kidd, previously editor of Picador and Macmillan, took over as stage manager in 2008. Since its foundation, the firm has placed great value on foreign legal issues, and Sally Riley manages the prestigious translation law practice of Aitken Alexander.
It opened an New York branch under Anna Stein in 2009 and Shruti Debi in New Delhi in 2011. These two movements reflect Aitken Alexander's great dedication to the best of the world of his work. As before, the main emphasis of the agent is on authors and writings and the enterprise presents a broad spectrum of award-winning and best-selling fiction and non-fiction books:
By acquiring Hughes Massie Limited (one of the first UK Frahlinguren established in 1905), the firm still represents the UK and Commonwealth interests in To A Mockingbird by Harper Lee and the works of J. D. Salinger and the legacy of writers such as Paul Gallico, Mary Norton and Slavomir Rawicz.
Further literary bequests of the Naipaul Literary Estate Agent are John Betjeman, Bruce Chatwin, Patrick Leigh Fermor, John Fowles, Ian Hamilton and Shiva Naipaul.
