RIVERSIDE, Calif., January 18, 2016— Christopher Ferebee announces the expansion of his literary agency, The Christopher Ferebee Agency, with the addition of publishing veterans Angela Scheff and Jana Burson. Chris founded the agency in 2011, which focuses on representing thought-provoking, life-changing and uplifting books from a variety of thought-leaders and world-changers.
“Angela and Jana are both industry veterans who have proven themselves to be incredibly effective working with great content over the years,” said Christopher Ferebee. “I’m excited for the opportunity to have them join the team.”
Angela Scheff spent 10 years working as an Editor and then Associate Publisher at Zondervan, a Christian imprint of HarperCollins, acquiring and editing many well-known authors. She also spent five years as a freelancer, working with a variety of Christian publishers, editors, and authors. Angela brings more than 16 years of experience in the publishing industry to The Christopher Ferebee Agency.
“I’m thrilled to join The Christopher Ferebee Agency to continue helping authors bring their voice, passion, and expertise to their readers,” said Scheff.
Jana Burson has more than 12 years experience in the publishing industry. Her career began in publicity at Thomas Nelson and within two years she was named Director of Publicity for the Nashville Division of Hachette Book Group. There, Jana led publicity campaigns for numerous New York Times bestselling titles. In 2010, Jana transitioned to Acquisitions Editor at Hachette, where she acquired and edited books by multiple bestselling authors. In 2014, Jana launched The Burson Agency, and has been providing both literary agent and various consulting services.
“I am excited to continue representing inspiring and life-changing books from men and women that want to impact culture one heart at a time. I look forward to working alongside Christopher and Angela,” said Burson.
Angela and Jana mark the first expansion for The Christopher Ferebee Agency.
“In late 2011, I moved from working with a larger team to going solo and have enjoyed a lot of flexibility working on my own,” said Ferebee. “But there are a lot of great opportunities I simply don’t have the bandwidth to pursue on my own. I’m eager to see what the future holds for our authors and this team.”
The Christopher Ferebee Agency was founded in October 2011 when Christopher Ferebee left his prior firm, Yates & Yates, to pursue additional opportunities both within and outside the Christian publishing market. As a small agency, they work with a select number of authors and organizations having an outsized impact in their sphere of influence. Learn more at http://www.
