Profile Summary

IMPORTANT NOTE: Kevin has been in touch with us to say that his profile on the JBA website is no longer representative of his current activities and is in the course of change. We've continued to list our own profile of Kevin, for the purposes of completeness, but users should be aware that the data which follows should not currently be trusted and will undergo substantial change in the course of July 2015. Please stand by for more.

Historic data (as of June 2015)Kevin joined JBA as an intern initially, then took on the role of Rights Manager, selling the firm's foreign, audio, and other rights on behalf of all the firm's clients. While still performing that role, Kevin has begun to develop a non-fiction list of his own. He has a particular interest in popular culture, sport, and related fields, and is known to have negotiated a six-figure deal for the Stone Roses biography. He was also the agent involved in the sale of John Lydon's (Johnny Rotten's) autobiography to Simon & Schuster in what the Bookseller described as a 'hotly contested auction'. In rather more upmarket vein, he is also agent to Lesley McDowell, known for work such as Between the Sheets, a study of the love lifes of nine twentieth century women writers.

We believe that Kevin will in principle be interested in submissions across the full range of non-fiction, but understand that he does not at present have any fiction list.

Note that all JBA agents have periods where they do not accept submissions. At present (May 2015), he is interested in receiving work, but writers should check direct with the JBA website immediately before submitting manuscripts

Further submission info:
We prefer to receive submissions by email. You will find our individual preferences and email addresses listed on our Agents page. We read all submissions made to us in order of receipt. Please note that we will only respond to submissions if we wish to read more. If you have not heard back from us within eight weeks then you can assume that we do not feel that the work is right for our agency. If you cannot submit by e-mail, then send a hard copy to your preferred agent. We will only respond if we wish to see more. Unfortunately we are unable to return material submitted, and our policy is to recycle all materials. For fiction, send us the first 50 pages (no more) and a synopsis in a single document, with a covering letter. For non-fiction, email a proposal and short example of the proposed work - a sample chapter, for instance. Please include a short note on the competing or comparable literature stating, where possible, author, title, publisher and publication date. It would be helpful to have an overview of possible marketing outlets and a biographical note outlining your background, training and experience. For children's, we do not represent poetry or plays. If you are submitting fiction, send a covering letter together with a synopsis of your novel and the first three chapters (unless it is a picture book, in which case, please send the full story). If you are an illustrator, please e-mail a selection of JPEGs with a covering letter, and if you also write stories, please send those too. Please write a covering letter in the body of the email giving an account of the background of the book and your writing career to date. If you have been referred to us by a publishing or personal contact then make this clear. If you have had previous correspondence with one of our agents please mention this. We would appreciate knowing if your project has been sent to or is being considered by other agents or publishers.
