About Publishers Agents & Films
As of March 4, 2018, Publishers, Agents & Films has gone through another transition, since it is now back with the original CEO and Founder, Gini Graham Scott. As many old timers are aware, the company was founded in 2003 as Publishers and Agents; was sold to new owners in 2008, who decided to step out of the business in 2013.
Briefly, Gini Graham Scott continued the company in San Francisco with a new partner based in Michigan as the Publishing Connection, who subsequently left the Bay Area to return to Michigan in July 2014. Then, soon after moving to Lafayette, Gini Graham Scott took over the company again and called it Publishers, Agents and Films, to reflect the company’s success in helping screenwriters and filmmakers make contacts in the industry.
Then, since she was primarily involved in writing and publishing books for clients and herself, she sold the business again in November 2016 to new owners. Several months later, they changed the name to The NudgeLine, and now the company is going back to its previous name — Publishers, Agents & Films — though with an “&” instead of an “and,” since everything is so much shorter these days.
Now that Scott has the company back again — like a dog that keeps coming home, she plans to grow it to achieve its original vision of being the preeminent email connection company that helps individuals in a variety of fields make connections with contacts in a target industry. These fields will not only include publishing and the film industry, but other connections are envisioned, such as connecting entrepreneurs to venture capitalists and angel investors, connecting inventors to manufacturers, connecting game and toy inventors to the toy industry, and connecting songwriters to music publishers, agents and managers, and record labels. Also, a key to this vision is going global, so that these connections can be made in multiple languages for individuals in countries around the world.
For now, the focus is on the publishing and film industries. But gradually we plan to add on other industries and global markets. And if you have your own database of contacts, we are able to mail to them, too.
