Jacinta di Mase ( Jacinta di Mase Management.)
Jacinta di Mase is an Literary Agent with more than 15 years experience in the publishing industry. She started her own agency, Jacinta di Mase Management in January 2004 after eight years with two of Australia’s premier literary agencies, Australian Literary Management (ALM) and Jenny Darling & Associates.
Jacinta represent a diverse range of authors and illustrators and represent most genres including picture books, young adult fiction, and fiction and non-fiction titles for the adult trade market.
Her start in the publishing industry was in bookselling. However, what started as a part time job quickly became an all-consuming passion. After working full time in bookselling for four years Jacinta landed a job with Pan Macmillan and soon transferred across to their marketing department before a brief stint in the marketing department at Macmillan Education.
Jacinta began working in the Melbourne office of Australian Literary Management in 1995 and has worked closely with many of Australia’s most loved authors. Clients on her list include Phil Cummings, Rosanne Hawke, Elise Hurst, and Moya Simons, Pinky McKay, Fiona Capp, Judith Lanigan and Myfanwy Jones.
She travels to international and local book fairs and festivals, and regularly meets with publishers and foreign literary agents. Jacinta negotiate and sell rights for books, translations, audio formats, DVD productions, stage adaptations, and film and television.
Jacinta work closely with many of my clients to help them structurally edit their manuscripts and to prepare publishing proposals for presentation to publishers.
