Literary Agents for Puzzle Books
« on: December 24, 2023, 10:12:03 AM »
Hello Everyone,

I am currently in search of a literary agent that could potentially help to get my work shown to larger presses, such as Simon & Schuster or Penguin Random House. 

Is there anyone out there that knows any literary agents that specialize in or handle puzzle book authors?

If so, any & all input would be appreciated. A name-drop, a website, an agency OR perhaps you might have advice on a better route to publishing vs. having to go through a literary agent to get to the bigger name publishers... ?

The 3 categories of puzzles I specialize in are:

1. Crosswords
2. Word Search
3. Codewords

Thanks for taking time to read my post & I look forward to your responses :)

Through an e-mail correspondence, Will Shortz said that literary agents for puzzle books don't exist because there's no value in it for the agents :(

Will Shortz stated via email that literary agents for puzzle books are non-existent due to the lack of perceived value for agents. vampire survivors

Daily puzzles are worth participating in and reasoning about. Many ideas were formed. Sometimes you will be surprised because it is so easy. These also have highly challenging puzzles. scratch games
