Close the deal. Leticia Gomez has lost count of how many times she’s heard those three simple words in her long career. What fuels this self-made and overachieving literary agent is being a tireless champion of underdog writers so they, too, can achieve their dreams. That means closing the deal. About fifteen years ago, during the Great Recession, Leticia Gomez started Savvy Literary Services.
She had multiple strikes against her: no money, no college education, no “good old boy” connections, a Latino woman, and based in Texas instead of New York City. Despite these undesirable circumstances, she has distinguished herself as a prominent literary/film/television agent who has helped her clients secure deals with the largest publishers in the world and seen several of her projects successfully optioned for film and television rights. To date, she has placed close to 200 non-fiction and fiction books with independent and mainstream traditional publishers. According to Publisher’s Marketplace, she is currently the #4 ranked agent in Non-fiction/Advice Relationship, #5 in Non-fiction Narrative, and #9 in Non-fiction books.
How does a Latino woman who came from very humble beginnings with only a high school education defy the odds and build a successful literary services company in Texas? What has enabled her company, which was founded in the height of the recession, becoming a mainstream industry leader? How does a woman consistently described as sunny and sweet compete and win in the cutthroat world of publishing against major league agents? Book her as a speaker at your next corporate event, non- profit meeting or university program and find out the secrets to her success.
Gomez is an engaging speaker who brings a truly fresh viewpoint to what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur in a highly specialized and oftentimes brutal industry. One of the few bi-lingual literary agents, she has thrived and built a highly successful literary agency—book by book. Now she has developed a series of workshops for universities, corporations, and non-profits to help people write their stories and sharing her knowledge on how to get them published. Because of her expertise in both fiction and non-fiction publishing as well as her understanding of the trends in the marketplace, she brings highly pragmatic and relevant information into all her workshops. All workshops are customized to those in the room and are highly interactive. An inspiring speaker with a host of practical advice for writers, book lovers, entrepreneurs, women business owners, and people of color, Leticia Gomez is a strong addition to corporate events, non-profit meetings, or university programs.
