I loved working with Tania and Sarah, who secured several audio deals for me. They are prompt with payments as well as very pleasant to work with!

Sarah Hershman and the entire team over at HRM have been an absolute joy to work with. There’s no doubt they have my best interest at heart. I can’t say enough about their responsiveness, work ethic, professionalism and friendliness

Sarah has been such a crucial part of my author career! Not only has she negotiated amazing audiobook deals with publishers such as Audible and Dreamscape, but she’s always an email away for anything else I have questions about. Agents have a rep for being difficult to communicate with, but I never have to wait long to hear from Sarah or her team about anything. I’m so excited to see what the future holds. It’s been such a gift to have HRM help me reach new readers. Audio is such a game changer and I couldn’t have done it without HRM.

HRM helped me negotiate multiple offers for the best deal. Sarah and her team got me approval on the covers and narrators, which I really wanted. She’s also been helpful with questions I had about hybrid deals and really anything book related. HRM is a great place to call home in the fast moving self publishing and audio book industry.

As well as answering any questions which makes the processes easy and stress-free. I’m definitely proud to say I’m part of the HRM family.
