Hard to believe that it was 15 years ago this week that The Steve Laube Agency was formed. Happy anniversary to us!
Since those nervous beginnings, we have been blessed by so many wonderful clients and publishing relationships. Over the years we have secured about 1,000 new contracts for more than 1,700 new books. Those books have sold more than 24 million copies so far.
We continue to have the honor of working with some of the very best writers our industry has to offer, with more than 300 now under our care. Beginning in 2011 our team grew to eventually include fellow agents Tamela Hancock Murray (2011), Bob Hostetler (2017), and Thomas Umstattd (2018). Karen Ball (2011-2017) and Dan Balow (2013-2018) were great colleagues as well. In addition, in 2017 we bought the Les Stobbe Agency, which added a number of new authors to the roster.
We truly have experienced this verse: “God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).
May our work continue to help change the world, word by word.
