    Nelsons Literary Agency
    Kristin Nelson is President and owner of Nelson Literary Agency, LLC. She founded her agency in 2002, right on the cusp of traditional publishing morphing to digital, and the following year became known as “that agent sporting some newfangled tablet PC thing” while visiting editors in New York. In 2004, her agency went completely paperless much to the astonishment of her fellow agents. She also started blogging in 2006 along with only four or five other intrepid agent early adopters, and Pub Rants is still active today. She is probably one of the first literary agents to hire a full-time software engineer as an employee to run NLA Digital for clients looking to digitally self-publish. NLA is always evolving to keep stride with changes in the industry, and because of that, Kristin is often a popular speaker at conferences such as Digital Book World.

    First, the author pitches an idea

    Unbound allows you to listen to authors' ideas for what they'd like to write before they even start. If you like their idea, you can pledge to support it. If we hit the target number of supporters, the author can go ahead and start writing.

    If you like it you can make a pledge

    There are several levels of support, each with different rewards. The higher your pledge, the greater the rewards you'll receive, from your name in the back of the book to lunch with the author.

    From there, you stay up to date

    As soon as you make a pledge to support an Unbound project you gain access to the author's private area, or 'shed'. Here you can get updates on the book's progress.

    And then you get the book

    After the book is written, designed, edited and printed, we send it to you, either as an ebook or a limited edition hardback or paperback.
    For the first time, you will be able to hold in your hands a book that wouldn't have existed without you.
