Welcome to Nappaland Literary
Nappaland Literary Agency is a boutique-sized author
representation company located in Colorado. Publishing industry
veteran, Mike Nappa, serves as the Chief Agent for this company.
This agency is a division of
Nappaland Communications Inc. (a
small media company started back in 1995), and is committed to
developing authors whose writing meets the following standards:
Here at Nappaland Literary, we are uninterested in writing that
is not real. We
expect our authors to live a lifestyle consistent with what they
write about, to deal with issues and situations that ring true, and
to write from a position of authority on whatever topic may be
We live in America in the 21st century. Some writers and editors
long for a return to days gone by...but not us. Books by Nappaland
authors must be relevant to modern American culture, to actual
readers, and to the multitude of influences and concerns that define
our current society.
In addition to being relevant to today, Nappaland books must be more than passing trends or current fads.
Books by Nappaland authors need to address the eternal aspect of
life in legitimate, effective ways. A book that neglects this vital
element may be publishable, but really, what's the point of that?
Nappaland authors must strive to create works that will last beyond
Because we are a deliberately smaller agency, Nappaland Literary
maintains an author-to-agent ratio that facilitates focused
attention on each and every writer who operates under the umbrella
of our group. The positive side of that is that each of our authors
receive dedicated, personal attention from their agent.
side of that is that our author roster is currently full - meaning
we are not accepting representation for any new authors unless they
come recommended to us by an existing Nappaland writer or editor.
Please accept our sincere apologies for this situation. If we add
new agents in the future, we will be sure to update this page to
indicate when we begin taking on new clients.
UPDATE: Nappaland Literary Agency now accepts
unsolicited submissions during specific "submission windows" each
year. See Details
