Dear Author:

I am Sheree Bykofsky, founder and President of Sheree Bykofsky Associates, Inc. Thank you for your interest in my Web site and my agency. Please call me Sheree.

I am a generalist and have eclectic and sometimes eccentric tastes. I represent all areas of non-fiction and commercial and literary fiction. I don't limit myself to particular genres because I'm always surprised by what appeals to me. If I love it, then I'll take it on. The only way to know is to try me. If it needs work and I want to represent it, I'll tell you. If I choose not to agent you, you should know that I'm not judging you or your writing, or even your idea. I am saying that it's just not right for me. Please also keep in mind that it is my strict policy not to give feedback when I pass on a book. What isn't right for me may be perfect for another agent.

There are a few areas I particularly like in non-fiction: popular reference, business, self-help/psychology, humor, biography and current affairs, women's interest, cookbooks, spiritual, multicultural, parenting, anything to do with games, movies, chronologies. In the past year I’ve sold over 15 poker books and authored three, the first of which, Secrets the Pros Won’t Tell You About Winning Hold’Em Poker, was published by Kensington in March 2006.  In fiction, I particularly like mysteries.  I’m always looking for a bestseller in any category.

Some of the genres I generally will not represent include poetry, thrillers, westerns, romances, occult, science fiction, fantasy, children's and young adult.

If you want to query me, please send an e-query to and follow the instructions above. We do not accept phone calls or unsolicited manuscripts. I do love to get fan mail or feedback on Sheree's Travel Corner! Please send either of these to me at (but no attachments, please!).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours truly,
