Amanda Preston

I read English Literature and Latin at Manchester University. After leaving university, I did a work experience placement at the Lonely Planet where I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in publishing and to that end, I joined literary agency Sheil Land Associates in 1997. In 2005 I set up LBA with Luigi.

I represent a wide range of authors, from award-winning debut novelists to popular fiction bestsellers and quality non-fiction. Whether commercial or literary, I like innovative and well-written storytelling, fantastic concepts and I want to be hooked from the start. Ultimately I’m looking for unforgettable books that demand to be talked about and shared, regardless of genre, and that I’m still thinking about days after finishing.

I will not be accepting submissions throughout the summer. I will reopen to submissions in October 2018.
