Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Jim Hart of Hartline Literary

Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 10.59.25 PM.pngJim Hart is a literary agent with Hartline Literary.

Jim’s clients include both veteran and debut authors and represents a mix of nonfiction and fiction clients. He serves both Christian and general markets. Currently Jim is most interested in nonfiction on the topics of Christian living, church growth, social issues, parenting, and some self-help. Nonfiction writers will need to show a strong platform in their area of expertise. He is not looking at memoirs or devotionals at this time.

Jim is looking at select fiction in these categories: suspense/thrillers, romance (contemporary, historical, suspense, Amish), women’s fiction, and some speculative and sci-fi. Fiction writers should possess a strong and growing platform. He is not looking at children’s or middle grade fiction at this time.

Jim is not looking at proposals for books that have been previously self-published. Please do not pitch him books that include graphic language and sex.

Jim is also a singer/songwriter/worship leader and has been involved in youth and music ministry for several decades. He is credentialed with the Assemblies of God.
