What’s it like to work with us? Hear what a few of our authors say about their partnership with Alive. 

“Bryan took our words and made them better,

while guiding us through a sometimes difficult process with an always calm and steady presence. Bryan has been the muscle behind each of the books Maria and I have written.

Bob Goff New York Times bestselling author of Dream Big, Love Does, & Everybody Always

“Professional, responsive, results-oriented,

Alive is everything I want in a literary agency. For nearly a decade, they’ve helped me reach my goals as an author. I couldn’t be happier with this partnership.”

Michael Hyatt bestselling author of The Vision Driven Leader

“The best decision I’ve ever made for my writing career has been to partner with Lisa Jackson.

Her unique editorial perspective and sharp marketing instincts have helped take my work to the next level. Knowing Alive is in my corner frees me up as an author to do the work to which I feel most deeply called.”

Emily P. Freeman bestselling author of The Next Right Thing

My journey as an author has taken a whole new turn for the better with Alive!

I could not imagine working with a better team than Alive Literary Agency. From my initial conversation with Bryan Norman to the publication of my book, I had three key persons all wrapped up in Bryan: agent, coach, and above all, friend.”

Thom Rainer bestselling author and founder of Church Answers

Divine grace coupled with Lisa’s generous wisdom make up the net that allows me to take giant, Jesus-shaped risks,

and not worry about crash landing! If ‘professional’ and ‘personable’ got  connected on eHarmony, then got married and had a baby, it would be Lisa Jackson! She’s one of the kindest people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with and she reeks of integrity.” 

Lisa Harper author of The Sacrament of Happy

An agent who feels like a friend, life coach, business advisor, and advocate in the publishing world is a rare find,

and I couldn’t be more grateful. Alive is next level. As an ambitious woman with big goals and a heart for family first, Bryan both encourages me to shoot for the stars while also keeping the full picture of life, and business, and books in mind so that I’m considering all factors and making the best decisions.”

Jordan Lee Dooley bestselling author of Own Your Everyday

 “I guarantee you there is no better agency out there — none at least, that will show the level of care and dedication.

Next to my wife, there is no one that I trust more than Bryan Norman. He is incredibly genuine and kind-hearted, yet frank and diligent at making things happen. Our experience with the entire Alive team has left us overwhelmingly impressed and at ease. We feel grateful that such an incredible team exists to bring our story to life.”

Captain Harold & Rachel Earls bestselling authors of A Higher Calling

 “Working with Lisa Jackson has changed the trajectory of my career.

She consistently provides me with critical insights just when I need them most, and has helped me navigate the ever-changing modern publishing landscape. On top of that, she’s a kind, generous person who is simply a pleasure to work with.” 

Jennifer Fulwiler author of Your Blue Flame

They eliminate the overwhelm and champion you and your words to the industry so you can focus on doing what you do best — write!

My experience working with Alive has been incredible. I highly recommend you partner with Alive to ensure you land the best publishing deal, establish a collaborative relationship with your publisher, and strategically navigate the sometimes-awkward business that is simply a part of the work we do!”
