From Our Clients
"I am the luckiest author to have Andrea Hurst and Sean Fletcher on my side. I really mean that. They are both outstanding, extremely dedicated and have worked hard to get the best results for me. They are true professionals with a wealth of experience and I am not ashamed to say that both Andrea and Sean have helped take my writing to the next level. My first book, Stiger’s Tigers, won an Independent Publisher Book (IPPY) Award for Best Fantasy. They provided not only their expert guidance but also editorial advice above and beyond my editor to help make this happen. I would not be the author I am today without them!"
~Marc Alan Edelheit author of Stiger's Tigers and The Tiger: Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary Officer
"I feel very privileged to have Andrea Hurst as my agent, not only because of her wealth of experience in the publishing industry, which helps me navigate through the marketplace, but because she also offers great expertise in developing my manuscripts and helping me create a strong vision for my long term career. Her vision and ongoing support have resulted in making my book and publishing career the success it is today"
~Suzanne Kelman author of The Rejected Writers’ Book Club and A View Across The Rooftops

~ Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of Love, Medicine & Miracles, The Book of Miracles, 365 Prescriptions for the Soul, The Art of Healing and many more.
"I recently signed with literary agent Andrea Hurst, who convinced me to give Kindle Press a try. I’ve never been happier. They promised to find new readers for my novels, and they have delivered beyond my expectations.”
~ Ashley Farley – Bestselling Amazon Author
Andrea was a great agent to work with, especially for a first time author such as myself. With her years of experience in the business, she found me the perfect publisher for my memoir. Furthermore, during the long and arduous process of taking my original idea from the book proposal stage to the final manuscript, Andrea was there every step of the way, offering valuable advice and keen insights. Best of all, when I needed her in my corner to fight for me, she was always accessible, persistent and positive, knowing just what to say to keep me on track. As a successful author herself, Andrea brings something special to her role as an agent: a deep understanding of the creative process. I highly recommend her without hesitation.
~ Craig Carlson, Author

Andrea and her team walked me through each step of the process with patience, care, and unmatched expertise, and turned my dream into a reality. Since day one, Andrea has been a wise mentor, a strong advocate, and a generous source of encouragement, drawing upon her years of experience while keeping a sharp eye on changes in the publishing landscape. I continue to benefit from her sound advice, guidance, and insights. Andrea and her team have shown unwavering belief in my writing and dedication to my career. Working with Andrea has been a pure delight, and I can’t imagine anyone I’d rather have in my corner!"
~Anise Eden author of All the Broken Places
“I consider myself quite lucky to have worked with Andrea on Fearless Writing. Not only did she find the perfect publisher and negotiate fiercely on my behalf, she was invaluable during the proposal-writing process. This was my first non-fiction proposal, and she was an excellent teacher and editor, helping me shape my idea into something attractive to publishers.”
~William Kenower, Editor-in-Chief of Author magazine
