David Luxton Associates is a literary agency dedicated to non-fiction publishing in all formats and media.  We have been behind some of the most successful sports books in recent years, an area in which we excel, but we are equally at home across all areas of non-fiction from music to lifestyle via diverse areas including nature-writing, investigative journalism, food-writing and photography.  Our client base is a dynamic and diverse mix of authors, journalists, sports personalities and organisations including talent management companies and international publishers. 

We negotiate major deals for our clients and we work with established writers to build their careers both in the UK and overseas.  We can provide advice on publishing strategy and we also provide a highly-effective foreign rights agency for a number of other literary agents and publishers, and secure film and television deals and other promotional opportunities for our clients.

We work closely with all our clients assisting them to develop book ideas and we pride ourselves on providing expert editorial and contractual advice, from inception to publication and beyond.  We can also call on a wide range of expertise to ensure that we tailor our services to suit the needs of individual authors, whatever their field of interest.

We also have a number of talented ghost-writers and editors on our client list and we are always happy to discuss potential collaborative ventures with publishers and other agents.
