About Savvy Literary

The Savvy Literary Agency first opened its doors for business in January of 2007, becoming one of a highly select group of agencies in the world that specialized in the Latino book market and offered literary representation in English and Spanish. Since its inception, the agency's prime directive has been to professionally, diligently, and tirelessly represent Latino and other ethnic minority writers since oftentimes they are misrepresented or worse yet not represented at all in the publishing industry. Although the Savvy Literary Agency has evolved through the years and has now become an industry leader by also specializing in Business and Self-Help, Suspense/Thriller, and the Young Adult market, championing the work of minority authors shall continue to be a top priority. Approximately 50 percent of the authors represented by Savvy Literary go on to have their works published traditionally.

I have worked with many publishers/agents over the past 2 decades and let me tell you that NO ONE is more sincere or has more integrity than Leticia Gomez of Savvy Literary Services. Most people in the publishing industry business are notorious for not having people-friendly skills. Sometimes it takes them days or even weeks to respond to an e-mail. Their excuse is that they have too many books/clients to deal with. This is furthest from the truth. I worked with one of the top publishing houses in the world for over 10 years and the senior editor would oftentimes joke with me about how undisciplined he was and how unmotivated the organization was - no sense of urgency whatsoever! Leticia is the first person I have met (after publishing over 30 books) that is PASSIONATE about her work, RESPONSIVE to her clients and a PLEASURE to speak with. I love working with her!
