Jody Rein Books, Inc., is a small, editorially driven literary agency that has been around a long time and represented many successful projects, primarily in nonfiction. Some of JRB’s notable projects have included The Big Year by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Mark Obmascik, which was made into a popular Fox movie starring Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin; 8 Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter by Bruce Cameron, on which the TV Series (sold through JRB) was based; and acclaimed international bestseller Skeletons on the Zahara by Dean H. King. JRB has obtained millions of dollars in advances and rights sales for its clients.
JRB is taking on very few new clients these uncertain days. Jody also offers platform development, branding, social media and editorial consulting services through JRB’s sister company, Author Planet. However, working with Author Planet is not a path to representation by JRB.
Jody Rein would love to hear from you with any comments or questions.
