About Us

WE'RE IN BEAUTIFUL COLORADO!

BLA is a small, full-service literary agency with a select list of clients. Sitting smack dab in the middle of the greater metro Denver area, we work with the large houses in New York and mid-size and small publishers all over the country. The Agency represents BOOKS, not screenplays or theatrical plays.      

Sandra Bond started her agency in Denver (born & raised!) many, many years ago. She and associate agents Becky LeJeune and Patrick Munnelly work with both first-time and previously-published authors, and their clients write adult fiction in various genres, young adult fiction, and many categories of nonfiction. They do not represent romance, poetry, children's picture books or screenplays.

Sandra was the program administrator at the University of Denver's Publishing Institute, where she now guest lectures each summer. 

She represents adult commercial and literary fiction, mystery/thriller/crime fiction, and YA fiction in all categories. She does not represent romance, adult science fiction, adult fantasy, poetry, children's picture books, or screenplays. In nonfiction, she represents narrative, science for a general audience, business and history, and the authors she takes on must have great credentials, real expertise in their subject area, and some kind of platform from which they can actively promote their books. Please note: she is no longer representing memoir.
