We have the know-how you need
We are a literary agency looking to represent Authors of non-fiction work in the following areas:
Business, Finance & Economics
Current Affairs & Politics
Lifestyle & Arts
If you're an author, you can work with us in a variety of ways.
Agency// We can act as your agent and find the best possible publishing partner for your work. We will help you construct a well-planned publishing proposal that will get your work noticed. We'll also help you develop and edit some sample chapters to really make your proposal fly!
Editorial Services// If you need help beyond a simple proposal and sample chapters, we offer editing, proofreading and illustration services. We can even arrange for a ghost writer if required.
E-Publishing Services// Once we've assessed your manuscript we may decide that in the first instance, self-publishing your work as an e-book is the best route for you. In this case we'll help edit, format and publish your work on Kindle and other e-book platforms. Many authors use self-publishing as a means of exploring their book's potential.
Video Courses// In the non-fiction market there is tremendous scope for boosting your book sales by offering an online course as a supplement. We have teamed up with a leading online learning developer to offer a reasonably priced service for online courses. Beautifully produced microlearning content can greatly enhance your reader's learning experience, offer additional revenue opportunities and serve as an effective marketing tool.

Chris Newson// has over 30 years of experience in the book trade. Starting out as a retailer he worked for Waterstones in London, Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Chris was Sales & Marketing Director for John Wiley (Asia) before becoming publisher at Marshall Cavendish International (Asia).
I worked with Nick on Wiley’s professional and trade program, where in his role of publisher he led the acquisition strategy for APAC. Nick signed several franchise authors and was part of a management team to lead the digital transformation of the publishing and learning enterprise. Nick has a strong track record in developing authors, creating market-leading concepts and with piloting innovative go-to-market commercial strategies.
Nick’s creative vision is a key strength that he brings to his projects and his ability to consistently deliver for the organization. I recommend Nick and his new business Newson Wallwork Publishing Services and wish him the very best in this endeavor.
Joan O’Neil / Former Executive VP, Knowledge & Learning / Wiley
I've been a published author since 1999, and have had the privilege to work with a number of publishing houses since that time. Nick Wallwork stands out head and shoulders above all of them. His publishing acumen is second to none, but what marks him out is his understanding of the author's viewpoint. I've known him since 2002 and I can safely say if it wasn't for him some of my best known and highest selling books would never have seen the light of day.
Nick tailors the book to the author, not the author to the publisher's template. It's been an absolute privilege and pleasure to work with him, and to continue to work with him, and also to see how his influence has benefitted my book writing. A class act, in every sense of the word.

I worked together with Nick in getting my latest book “Leadership by Algorithm” noticed by the top publishers out there. Nick has an amazing network of both academic and trade publishers and knows the ins and outs of how to represent the author in the best way possible. I very much enjoyed working with him and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent or editor that can make a real difference in the book you’ll ultimately publish.

As a writer, expressing your truth, standing up for what you believe in, sometimes puts you directly in the face of fear, criticism and uncertainty. You need powerful allies - and Chris has been an amazing one. With his sharp wit, radical candour, patience and generosity of spirit, he stretched my thinking and helped me make the words come alive!
He found a highly influential and prestigious publisher for my first book - Dancing At The Edge Of Greatness. A wonderful home for the book. It wouldn’t have been possible without his mastery of the dark arts of publishing. So if you have dreams of creating something provocative, reach out to Chris, and brace yourself for a thrilling ride!
Sophia Chin / Leadership Development Coach / Lead Consultant at PERSONNA
Chris is one of the kindest, most dedicated and committed people I've ever worked with in the publishing industry. We sold many, many books together in Singapore and across the world. Chris is the kind of publisher every author wants: considerate, generous, patient and loyal (even when my ideas are rubbish). Frankly, whatever literary career I have in a tough industry is due in large part to Chris' encouragement and his ongoing support for my work. In the ruthless world of publishing, he really is one of the good guys.
Neil Humphreys / Singapore's best-selling author / Media columnist, TV & Radio host / Writer, School storyteller / College lecturer
This is one dynamite entrepreneur - full of energy, ideas and a bit of daring. But at the same time he's a great listener, a careful planner, and a details man. All in all he is an unusual combination of qualities topped by that most elusive but important of all virtues: a constant sense of humor, not only about his work but even himself. A-plus!
