Barbara Collins Rosenberg

The Rosenberg Group

I opened my agency in June 1998, after a successful career in the higher education division of Harcourt Brace. Since that time I have represented authors of college textbooks and trade nonfiction; and romance and women’s fiction. Helping writers develop their proposals and manuscripts is the most important part of my job. My goal is to establish long-term relationships with my clients, building and managing careers along the way. I have had the privilege of guiding authors through the journey of publishing multiple titles and revising many textbook editions. I am well versed in all aspects of publishing – editorial, production, sales, and traditional and digital marketing. When I represent my authors in contract negotiations I fight for them, and strive to ensure that all issues regarding print and digital rights are in their favor. I respect that writing and the craft of revision are creative endeavors, but publishing is a bottom line industry, so I make certain to explain the jargon and the ins and outs of the book business to my authors.
