Jane Dowary Agency was founded in the beginning of 2013 by Julia Sarah Levin. Jane Dowary Agency is a full service literary agency that works with authors to get their novels published and works with authors from all over the world. Julia is keenly interested in fiction. Her fields of interests are: General fiction, Romantic fiction, Adventure, Action, Horror, Thriller, Chick Lit, Detective, Mystery, Literary, and all age range works for children. For non-fiction, she is interested in all topics that need to be discussed and learned about but concentrates more on fiction: Julia's commissions for making sales are: 15% for domestic sales, 21% for international sales, and 25% for movie production sales. Julia is not a publicist and does not do any publicity work. Any client that signs with her will have to find their own publicist. She is also not an editorial agent and does not do any editing on the manuscripts written by her clients. She offers a one year contract and a career-binding contract.
