End of year wrap up

Twenty twenty three has been another huge year of growth at Alex Adsett Literary, and in the final wrap up it turns out we’ve published THIRTY THREE amazing books from our incredible authors and illustrators!!! (!!!!). We also welcomed on board new agent Abigail Nathan, celebrated first sales by both Rochelle Fernandez and Abigail, and farewelled Brian Cook to his well deserved retirement. With one working week of 2023 to go, I’m one very proud and very tired agent, and no, I don’t have a good reason for the festive dinosaur. Scroll through for more on this year’s brilliant book haul – we’ve got junior fic, literary fiction bestselling superstars, crime, middle grade, YA, commercial fiction & rom com, and so many picture books! Thank you to everyone – publishers, authors, readers – for supporting another big year!
