In recent months, several major literary agencies have added e-book publishing services for their clients—the largest so far being Trident Media Group, which announced Trident E-Book Operations just last week. Now Perseus Books Group is launching Argo Navis Author Services, which will help literary agencies jump on the bandwagon and offer those e-book publishing services to their authors.
Literary agencies Janklow & Nesbit and Curtis Brown are the first agencies to sign up to offer Perseus’s new service to their clients, the New York Times reports, with “more than a dozen other agencies” also close to signing on. One of those others is ICM, Publishers Lunch reports. The agencies aren’t required to sign exclusive agreements with Perseus.
