A One Year Anniversary Announcement

by Steve Laube

A year ago we welcomed Tamela Hancock Murray and Karen Ball to our agency. I couldn’t be more pleased.

These two ladies are amazing people. They both work very hard to serve their clients with passion and excellence. I am blessed to have them as part of our team.

Next week will be the eighth anniversary of the founding of The Steve Laube Agency. We have had some wonderful success and represented some amazing authors and books in those years. I pray that we continue to help change the world word by word.

    When Steve Laube announced he was becoming a literary agent, I knew he would be my agent. No hesitation on my part. Have been with him all eight years. Karen Ball has been my editor and friend long before she became an agent and I was delighted when she teamed up with Steve. Great people all! Blessed to be associated with them. Congrats on reaching this milestone!

    Happy Anniversary!! In your honoUr, all of Canada has been given the day off to celebrate with you!!! Okay, not really, but we still have the day off, it’s Queen Victoria’s birthday.
    When I grow up, I want an agent like Jack Kavanaugh’s. :)

    Congratulations! The last year has certainly flown by — I would have guessed it was only a few months ago.

  22. Tamela Hancock Murray May 21, 2012 at 4:27 pm #

    Thank you all so much for the good wishes, and thank you, Steve, for the lovely post. What a wonderful year we have had! I look forward to many more! :D

    When Tamela called to tell me she was starting with Steve, my response was something like, “I’m not surprised.”

    Good move. And may it be many more.
