What People Are Saying
“Stephanie Tade’s agency is absolutely fabulous. Stephanie is an astute businesswoman who is also smart, warm, funny, and all-round wonderful. She understood our book from its inception and was our fearless champion. She’s the best agent any author could have.”Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D.
“Stephanie and her team are a dream to work with. She’s represented me for years and it’s just so wonderful to have someone who not only looks out for my work with thoughtfulness, care, and precision but is also creative and is available to help brainstorm how each book should look and feel.”Lodro Rinzler
“Stephanie is a powerhouse agent. One conversation with her was all it took for her to understand my message and mission. She put it into immediate motion and had me connected to the best publisher and editor in the industry. Quick follow-through, compassionate feedback, and determined. She has all the makings of what you are looking for to get your book out!”Deanna Minich, Ph.D.
“Stephanie has been a dream come true as an agent. She is a wise, compassionate, blessedly funny person, combined with being a kick-ass negotiator. Not a common combination! I feel so lucky to be working with her and trust her implicitly. I recommend her agency very much.”Tosha Silver
“I’ve known Stephanie a long time, and when we first started working together I worried that she was too friendly, too nice… would she be soft in negotiations? Is it good that people seem to like her? Should I have a junk yard dog as an agent? Then I saw there was an iron fist in that velvet glove, and there was nothing to worry about. Seriously. She’s as good as it gets.”Frank Lipman, M.D.
“Stephanie, or ST as she is often called, absolutely rocks! ST is an amazing example of a successful woman, wife, and mother who looks out for the best interest of her clients rather than herself. When negotiating book deals she 100% puts my interest and wants and needs above her financial interest. She is the best book agent out there and I am so blessed to have her not only as mine but also as a friend and advisor.”Amy Myers, M.D.
“When it came time to get our book to publishers I thought we would work with my coauthor’s previous agent. Lucky for us, she did not want to represent our controversial book so we went on the hunt. After interviewing several potential agents, it was clear Stephanie Tade was the one! She said give me a week and I know I’ll have lots of interest in this book. Sure enough, in a week we had 6 publishers interested. Next she said, let’s go to auction, we should have a good deal in no time. We were in auction for a week, masterfully managed by Stephanie, getting a max deal — better than either of us had ever dreamed of! She has professionally guided the process with attention to our needs and confidence and skill. If you get the chance to work with Stephanie Tade, jump at it. I can’t imagine a better agent.”Paul Thomas, M.D.
“As a first time author, I honestly could not have asked for a more supportive, thoughtful, and candid team than Stephanie and Colleen. From the time I started writing my proposal to its successful sale (two years and two babies later!) they were 100% with me every step of the way. I have recommended them to other authors, who have similarly had phenomenal experiences. In short, these women are wise, kind, accessible, and great at their work.”Leah Weiss Ekstrom, Ph.D., M.S.W.
