After months of painstaking querying of literary agents nationwide, Kimberlie Dykeman’s diligence (finally) paid off with a contract with Oregon-based MacGregor Literary, which backs authors in both the Christian and general markets. Seeking representation for her next SOAPBOX® books, a motivational series of mini-books, Kimberlie hit it off with the agency’s founder Chip MacGregor, whose visionary expertise helped him to see the tremendous potential for the SOAPBOX® brand in the literary world and countless other mediums. As an experienced agent, editor, author, and publisher, Chip MacGregor’s reputation is stellar in the ever-competitive industry. He has represented bestsellers on the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, Los Angeles Times, Denver Post, Amazon.com, and B&N lists, and earned numerous awards including the Gold Medallion, Christy, RITA, and Walden Books Award.
“Kicking off the New Year with a brilliant, connected partner in my corner is a dream come true,” says Kimberlie. “With Chip’s endorsement and efforts, I am truly confident that a solid publishing house will see my writing in the best possible light and hustle to launch my work to the public.”
