At the Angela Rinaldi Literary Agency, we have been opening publishing doors for writers of fiction and non-fiction since 1994. Each submission sent is read carefully with the intention of discovering the finest work to present to publishers. Our extensive experience as editors, and vast knowledge of the industry, is the foundation that makes us the best partner to encourage and guide writers through the publishing process, always keeping in mind creative strategies for the emerging opportunities available in the new media. Who We Are: After working at several publishing houses in New York in editorial positions and publishing books for The Los Angeles Times for ten years, connecting writers with publishers was a natural extension of Angela Rinaldi’s long involvement with publishing. The success of the agency is a reflection of our ability to recognize the authors who will capture an editor’s attention. We are dedicated writer’s advocates committed to guiding authors through the many levels of the publishing world which now includes digital publishing. We are proud to have represented books like the eight million copy bestseller Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr. Spencer Johnson, Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game by Dr. Joseph Parent, Blood Orange and The Good Sister by Drusilla Campbell and From Seed to Skillet by urban gardener Jimmy Williams and lifestyle journalist Susan Heeger. Our vision is to continue to support distinctive voices. Angela Rinaldi is president of The Angela Rinaldi Literary Agency in Los Angeles.

Her experience as an editor, publishing liaison and industry professional, including the time spent creating books for The Los Angeles Times, developed the strong foundation she built her agency on and has given her the contacts and resources to expertly advise authors about all traditional and state of the art publishing options. Contact Us: The Angela Rinaldi Literary Agency Post Office Box 7877 Beverly Hills, CA 90212-7877 Email: [email protected] Phone: 310.287.0356 Fax: 310.837.8143 *Email queries only. Tell me if this is a multiple submission. Please mention all your writing credits. To be more specific: Fiction-- brief synopsis and no attachments unless requested; Please paste the first ten pages of the novel into the query. Non-fiction -- write a detailed covering letter, don’t attach a proposal unless requested. For all queries: please don't ask me to go to your website to read your query. *Foreign Publisher and Agent Inquiry: Foreign publishers interested in UK or translation rights can write to this address as well and we will promptly refer queries to appropriate sub agent or publisher.

Mission: What We Do: We are literary managers using our experience to help you present your work in complete artistic and professional form. We are a liaison to the publishing world. The publishing process begins when your work gets an editor’s attention during the submission phase. This happens when they read the first few pages of a novel and engage with a distinct voice telling a great story or when they respond to a provocative story question that is well executed in the narrative. It happens when they read a non-fiction proposal that has urgency and feels important, or when they are finished reading, they feel that they know something more about the world. When we read your material and are confident that those elements exist in your work and agree on representation, we work closely with you to strengthen your novel or proposal, so your work goes out to an editor in the best shape possible. Editorial development and manuscript preparation is our forte. We also represent collaborating writers and can connect experts with excellent writers who can best represent their work on the page. Negotiating the best deal is what follows after an editor and their publishing house commits to your work. Preparing the contract and working with sub agents to license rights if we retain them continues our relationship. Once the book is published and you have established a relationship with the acquiring editor, we become a liaison between you and the publisher. How to Submit: We get many submissions and review them carefully and as quickly as possible. We prefer email submissions however, we will read those sent by mail. Our response time is 6-8 weeks for mail submissions and two weeks for email submissions. Because of the volume we can only respond to those queries we are interested in pursuing. We will send an automated reply to your email letting you know if your work is not a right fit for our agency. Please do not query by phone or fax or send CD/DVD or anything with electronic storage. For fiction, please send a brief synopsis and paste the first ten pages into an email. Non-fiction queries should include a detailed cover letter, your credentials and platform information as well as any publishing history. Tell us if you have a completed proposal. Email submissions should be sent to [email protected] Include the word “Query” in the subject line. We will not open attachments or go to your website to read your query. Address all mail queries to: The Angela Rinaldi Literary Agency Post Office Box 7877 Beverly Hills, CA 90212 Thank you for your submission and we appreciate your patience while we read your work.

The Epi-Log on Epicurious.com: Recipes from Hand-Crafted Candy Bars

Epicurious loves Susie Norris Epstein and Susan Heeger's
Hand Crafted Candy Bars (Chronicle Books).

Palates may change over time, but even as we mature, many of us retain at least some of our taste for candy bars. Case in point: I can't seem to move past my Almond Joy addiction, which started in early childhood. No matter how much high-end chocolate I eat (and it's not an insignificant amount), I still get cravings for Almond Joy and I suspect I always will. I also think I'll continue to indulge in the occasional candy bar now and then, even though I know they're full of things that are absolutely no good for me.

Another option is to start making my own candy bars. Sounds ambitious, right? It might not be as simple as making brownies, but homemade candy is hardly impossible. Spend some time reading food blogs or perusing Pinterest and you'll quickly see just how popular it is to make your own candy. And with a little time and effort you get the benefit of knowing what's inside your confection and how it was made; there's no mysterious, unpronounceable ingredients and no factory or assembly line is ever part of the process.

Susie Norris and Susan Heeger had all this in mind when they wrote their new cookbook, Hand-Crafted Candy Bars. The candy-loving duo wanted to re-create those impossible-to-resist candy bar flavors and textures, using high-quality ingredients and no preservatives. Their charming and approachable book covers many of the classic candy combinations, including almond, coconut, and chocolate; caramel, nougat, and chocolate; peanut butter and chocolate; and toffee and chocolate. The book is obviously written for chocoholics.

Norris and Heeger also provide recipes for candy bar building blocks, such as marzipan, fondant, caramel, and tempered chocolate. And they take their candy-bar creations one step further by introducing more contemporary ingredients like green tea, wasabi, pink peppercorns, and chipotle chiles. They close the book with plating suggestions for serving candy-bar focused desserts as well as a few tips on gift wrapping. After all, these are no ordinary candy bars, so they deserve at least a little extra fanfare.

Dr. Joseph Parent | Zen Golf

Great review from USA Today for Joe Parent's new book, Zen Putting (Gotham Books).

Parent is a large man.

He's also soft-spoken.

In other words, to paraphrase Teddy Roosevelt's famous motto, Parent speaks softly and carries a big putter. Parent, who completed his Ph.D. in psychology in 1979 and eventually took his insights to golf and business, has been a leading tutor on the mental and physical sides of putting, working with former No. 1 players Vijay Singh and Cristie Kerr, as well as Juli Inkster and David Toms and hundreds of pro and amateur golfers.

Parent, a motivational speaker, has appeared on CNN, ABC, NBC, HBO Sports, ESPN and Golf Channel. He wrote best sellers Zen Golf and Zen Putting, emphasizing how the Zen Buddhist philosophy can assist you in golf. And his latest book, How to Make Every Putt: The Secret to Winning Golf's Game Within the Game (Gotham Books), zeroes in on the mental and physical challenges of using the flat stick.

Parent doesn't mince words — nor waste them. You won't get lost in translation as Parent provides simple, straightforward techniques for you to master mind over mallet.

He breaks the book down in seven sections that deal with confidence, green reading, speed, stroke, putting routine, challenging putts, and continuous improvement. Throughout the fast-paced book he tees up one example after another that will make you think differently about putting – and hopefully improve your results.

Parent also drops lines from great putters in the history of the game who capture specific approaches to putting.

A few of the gems:

"I never stroked a putt that I hadn't already made in my mind," Jack Nicklaus said.

"Hit the putt as well as you can, and do not allow worry over the outcome to spoil the stroke," Bobby Jones said.

"Speed, speed, and speed," said Loren Roberts, the Boss of the Boss, when asked what the three most important things in putting are.

"Putting is like wisdom: partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience," Arnold Palmer said.

The book also includes QR codes linking to exclusive online instructional video clips plus selected footage from Parent's DVD, "Putting with Confidence."
