Our Approach

Side by Side maintains a small, exclusive list of authors so that we can give a degree of personalized focus and attention to each and every client that is simply not available at other agencies. We are dedicated to partnering with authors to achieve books that scale bestseller lists and often advance the national conversation. We focus on the success of each book, as well as on devising customized publishing strategies to support our client’s publishing careers and, where applicable, their broader mission-specific goals (short-term, mid-term, and long term).  We understand that our responsibility to our clients is not only to shape their books, but to be a strategic partner who can help make the necessary alliances and dynamic plays to build an author’s platform and, wherever applicable, realize the potential for turning great concepts and books into sustainable franchises and launching pads to success across multiple platforms.
