Lucas Alexander Whitley is active in all areas of representation (including speaking, licensing, brand, film and television deals) and operates with individuality and commitment. Small enough to be friendly, big enough to operate effectively in a global market, always imaginative, we not only look for the best deals for our clients but also plan their long term careers.

Mantle are gearing up for their August 11 UK publication of Miss You by Kate Eberlen. It was acquired last summer after a seven way auction and featured in The Bookseller as Editor's Choice for August 2016.
Tess and Gus meet only fleetingly, in Florence, during the last heady days of the summer before going up to university in 1997. These two engaging and compellingly flawed first person narrators then guide us through their separate but always intertwined experiences over the course of nearly two decades of separation by time, chance and heart-breaking tragedy. In the process, they present us with a feast of perennially haunting questions, not least: What happens when you don't find the right person - The One - at the right time? Or indeed when you keep bumping into the right person at the wrong time? They are irresistible protagonists in the love story of their generation.
Sophie Kinsella has already been captivated:
"If ever a couple was 'meant to be' it's Tess and Gus. This is such a witty, poignant and uplifting story of two lives criss-crossing over the years, with near-miss after near-miss... I couldn't put it down."
Our literary agents are happy to consider submissions from new authors, but please be aware that we are a small literary agency with a busy client list and we take on only a handful of new clients each year from the thousands of approaches made to us, many of which are from established writers and artists. If you are a new author, please read the submission guidelines before doing anything else.
