John F. Murphy, Jr.
I have decades of solid experience in editing and rewriting manuscripts -- fiction, nonfiction, book-length, and short features. I have hundreds of manuscripts to my credit, having worked at the right hand of my late father, who was established as a literary agent for more than thirty years. From him I gleaned a working knowledge of the literary marketing field.

RULERS FOR WRITERS
Lurline Cunard Broome
Vassar Hathcox Persall
CUNARD HATHCOX AGENCY
Nye, MT 59061
I will represent an author whose writing I deem to be marketable, under the auspices of a 15% agency-client contract.
It should be understood that most original manuscripts require editorial adjustments before they can be considered market-ready. This is no reflection on an author's creativity. Many writers with the best ideas and storylines are not particularly proficient in the mechanics of grammar and manuscript format. That's the purpose of editors and agents -- to make your work the best that it can be, and to present it in a form that publishers will notice and appreciate.
Please note that I do not require that editing be performed by CUNARD HATHCOX AGENCY. I do require, however, that the job be done right, by a competent editor. For several reasons I do not refer to other editing services, but my clients are completely free to seek them out on their own.
CHA SPECIALIZES IN CHRISTIAN MATERIAL.
Occult, metaphysical, or New Age subjects
will not be considered.
Otherwise, it should not be assumed
that CHA's interest is limited to the Christian market
or that we do not handle a broad range of subjects/genres.

CHA no longer accepts poetry
unless it is incorporated into another work,
or short stories or articles except as a courtesy
to clients for whom we represent book-length works.
We no longer accept

read your material there,
and contact you if it interests him.
Manuscripts should be submitted for consideration.
EDITING SERVICES and LITERARY AGENCY...are two separate entities. If you are seeking a literary representative but do not wish to employ an editor, please do not hesitate to submit your manuscript.
