I am looking to put out a book on humor not related to magic. If there are any literary agents out there who could lend a hand, let me know!
AT LAST - a NEW fun coins across!! MIGRATE is filled with laughs, magic, cool moves, lasts over 3 minutes, uses props, comes in a Poker Chip version or special Deluxe version with coins, and is about...BEARS!

Available at dealers EVERYWHERE - RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used in the book.

I'm not a literary agent, but this is a good resource. Probably at your local library if you don't want to buy a copy.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Publishers will rarely look at a book that does not come through an agent. The agents are a sort of weeding out process.

You need to do a good solid proposal and write a substantial amount of the book. Make sure it is edited, and completely error free (grammar, spelling, syntax, the whole works). Then get a guide to literary agents (Writers' and Artists' Yearbook in the UK, the equivalent in the USA). Pick out all the agents that handle humour, and sent it to thirty or forty of them.

Some with reply, but give them six to eight weeks. Most won't. That is why you send it out to so many.

Best of luck with it.

It is not the same thing but my nephew works for news agency and it’s amazing how much they will pay for a funny story. They more or less buy and resell them to national newspapers.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
