The Steve Laube Agency Acquires the Leslie H. Stobbe Literary Agency
Steve Laube, president of The Steve Laube Agency, has announced the acquisition of the Leslie H. Stobbe Literary Agency.
Les Stobbe has been a part of the Christian publishing industry for 62 years, starting as an editor and book buyer, then publisher, book coach, ghostwriter, and the last 25 as a literary agent. Les has been awarded five Lifetime Achievement Awards by writers’ conferences in the U.S. and Canada. This sale will allow him to focus his future efforts on becoming available as a non-fiction ghostwriter, writing coach and title development specialist. He said, “I have the utmost respect for my brother in Christ, Steve Laube. I’ve known him for almost 30 years. His agency’s oversight will guarantee that my clients will have top level representation for years to come.”
Steve Laube said, “I’m always looking for ways to increase the services our agency provides to current and potential clients. By adding more than 75 authors to our agency, we can create more synergy with our publishing partners and maximize clients’ sales. We look forward to working with these exceptional authors to develop and guide their publishing efforts and extend their reach in multiple markets. This purchase moves us further to fulfill our mission to help change the world, word by word.”
Laube referred to Les Stobbe as “one of the great icons of our industry,” adding that “his legacy to authors and publishing has had far-reaching impact.”

I have completed a 85,500 word novel of Christian Historical Fiction. I am in pursuit of a literary agent. I will email or ‘otherwise’ mail a query letter, synopsis, and whatever else is required upon your reply. Thank you!

Teresa, I am a freelance editor, so I can help you polish your novel manuscript and proposal to prepare them for submission to a literary agent. This is an important step since agents receive a large number of submissions, and many of them have been professionally edited, so that’s your “competition.” As you work with me on your manuscript, you will learn professional writing techniques that you can use in anything you write. If you’re interested in a quote for my services, email me using the Contact page of the website. I look forward to hearing from you!
