The Greek philosopher Plato, in quoting Heraclitus, wrote, “Everything changes and nothing stands still.” Some say it another way, “The only constant is change.”
In 2016 Dan Balow started a small publishing company called Gilead Publishing, which he has been overseeing in his “spare time” while simultaneously being a great literary agent.
After many long conversations, it became apparent, as Gilead Publishing has grown (released 30 new titles this year alone), that Dan could no longer do both with excellence and has decided to depart The Steve Laube Agency at the end of this month.
We have already begun transitioning clients to new management in-house, and with Dan’s help the process has been very smooth.
I will personally miss having Dan to kick around on a regular basis. Seriously, for the last five years he made a significant mark with his insights, support, and continued commitment to our industry and helped shepherd dozens of new books into the market.
Dan’s final official blog post will run tomorrow.
Congratulations to their family. An exciting time for them.
Pray for the baby’s health and Margaret’s recovery. As for Thomas? Pray for sleep.
