What is Agent-Managed Publishing?

by | Apr 8, 2022 | Agent Advice, Book Editing, Book Writing, Fedd FAQS

Agent-managed publishing combines the most powerful benefits of traditional publishing with all the perks of self-publishing—while eliminating the biggest downfalls of both. 

Through Fedd Books, The Fedd Agency’s agent-managed publishing model, we help you create a professionally edited and designed book that will stand out in the marketplace. And as your message and platform grow, you have an experienced agent in your corner who can help you navigate the publishing landscape to make sure you reach your full potential. 

Here are 6 key benefits of agent-managed publishing:

1. TIME 

Release your book within a year. 

Fedd Books can get a book on the market faster than a traditional publisher. It usually takes a minimum of two years to find an agent and get a book published by a major house. In contrast, Fedd Books releases books within timelines as short as four to six months. 


Keep the intellectual property and rights to your work. 

We help you craft a winning book, but you retain all the rights and can bring your creative vision to life with complete control throughout the publishing process. 


Receive top-of-the-line services. 

Our quality standards are some of the highest in the publishing industry. From editorial to design to production, you will receive exceptional services to create a book that will thrive in the marketplace. 


Earn more from each book sale. 

Through Fedd Books, authors retain a much larger portion of the profits than they would with a traditional publishing house. 


Watch doors open. 

Being a published author with a quality book can help you land more speaking events, grow your platform, increase your business, find podcast opportunities, and expand your network. 


Gain insight from accomplished agents. 

Fedd Books offers access to and consultations with our team of well-connected and highly-skilled agents who will assist you in creating a custom publishing plan to fulfill your maximum potential. 

We are passionate about creating world-class experiences for our authors and helping them create not just products but careers that thrive. Some of our Fedd Books authors have gone on to receive offers from traditional publishing houses, launch and grow their speaking careers, build brands, change communities, establish credibility in a specific field, and impact the lives of readers across the globe.
