Book Agents for Women Centered Manuscripts

Women's fiction and women's issues books are a big market in the book publishing industry

Women's fiction are novels with women lead characters or books that deal with issues that are more women related. Writers in this field include Joshilyn Jackson, Noral Roberts, Sue Monk Kidd, and Jane Green. Women's issues books are nonfiction books that deal with pregnancy, female medical problems, or anything geared toward women such as "The Woman's guide to finance", etc. These books are normal nonfiction manuscripts that have a very real slant to the female perspective and it alone.

Statistics from the American Bookseller Association show that more women than men buy books. Women's fiction and Women's issue nonfiction is a huge growing market for today's writers and agents designed to sell their manuscripts are in hot demand. Women's fiction account for 40% of the U S fiction market and 60% of the U S paperback book market. According to a Gallup Poll, we're talking a $24 billion dollar industry.

The market for women's fiction and women's issues is still very hot and reliable. According to sources the Romance fiction net sales were projected to be $1.4 billion for 2005. Keeping in mind that there were 172,000 new titles in 2005, that is a huge amount in relation to books on the market.

Agents prefer a hot market, with plenty of defined readership. They don't like experimental work that may be difficult to place or sell in the market today. The book industry market likes sure things, and not a gamble. The readership of the women's markets do not disappoint on that front. If you are a author and would like to market your work to agents that prefer manuscripts like yours, who have their finger on the pulse of today's women's fiction and women's issues book publishers, then these are definitely the agents you need to query for that big break.
