by Steve Laube
It is hard to believe that this weekend marks ten years since I made the decision to open The Steve Laube Agency in 2004. I can honestly say it has been a blessing to have the opportunity to serve the industry and our authors in this capacity.
It is stunning to realize we have secured contracts for over 1,000 books. And the books that have been published have sold over 13,000,000 copies.
We’ve survived many changes. Multiple mergers and purges in the industry. A national economic crisis. Three presidential elections. The advent of ebooks. The disruption and rise of Amazon.com. Twilight and Fifty Shades of Gray. But through it all the good news of the Gospel has been proclaimed through the written word.
It has been exciting to add Tamela Hancock Murray, Karen Ball, and Dan Balow to the team. They each bring such extraordinary strengths to the table that we all benefit from each other’s insights.
We are also honored to represent some of the finest writers in the industry. Each one is tremendously gifted and has a unique message or story to tell. We love our clients and it is a measure to realize that we all look forward to each work day. There is something new, fresh, and exciting from our authors.
This blog was started in Fall 2009 and I want to thank each of you for following our posts. We hope that each day brings a little bit more help to you as you navigate this publishing journey.
I simply cannot wait to see what God has for us during the next ten years!
congrats Steve! can’t believe it has been ten years

I remember seeing the press release/announcement info about you starting your agency and thinking, “Hmmm, I have to check this guy out!” I’m so glad I’ve had the honor to get to know you over the years and see your agency grow and bless so many.
