"Lalitha immediately recognized the geopolitical resonance of my novel with the current military build-up of the South China Sea, China’s regional aspirations and the simmering vulnerability of the United States. She acted quickly to market my story to top publishers in the Asia Pacific region. Lalitha is an avid, author-focused advocate and I am fortunate to have her representing me."

You are represented by a professional who cares

"Lalitha Ravindran not only pitches your manuscripts but she does the Xtra that few literary Agents do – she makes sure that she understands you and that makes her precious. When you have Lalitha you know you are represented by a professional who cares."

Authors should only focus on writing

"I am an author. My passion for storytelling and imaginative thinking borders obsession, but I was no good at what comes after finishing a manuscript. After I had lost all hope, Lalitha made an almost angelic entry into my life and just owned all the tough part from me like a boss. She not only got me a good publisher really interested in my work, but also the one who shares the same principle as mine; and that is – “authors should only focus on writing”. What is also fascinating about her work is that she doesn’t leave you once the deal is done, but invests time in helping you with marketing, arranging interviews and events, getting reviews, and keeping publisher on toes to make sure they meet their end of the bargain, and encourages you to work on your next masterpiece while she is busy looking for opportunities for your next breakthrough."

First Forays

What would our lives be without stories? Many are told to us by our grandparents and parents and gradually we learn to read, explore different genres, dream about them, stay up late, talk about them and store them in our memories forever!

However, a friend, philosopher and guide is essential to wade through the road from writing to publishing. That’s where First Forays comes in to hold your hand and realise your dream.

There’s an insatiable quest for new writings and new thoughts. What would the world be without writers and poets and dreamers? Writers and poets would still be on-demand as will readers across the globe. Winners in this space would be those who found the right literary agency partner to provide the support, guidance, network, platform and be there with you ALWAYS.

A winning combination brings out the best of each other. Read more about Lalitha’s mission.
