Feedback for A|U!

At Authors Unbound, our first priority is to build strong and enduring relationships on both sides of the event podium. We work hard to ensure that we’ll be proud of each and every event, so that everyone comes away feeling they were well-supported, received prompt and thorough communication, and provided their audience members with an experience to remember.


Simply put, Authors Unbound is outstanding to work with. The communications and payment system is efficient. Plans and event itineraries are always timely, comprehensive, and easy to understand. Anytime I have questions or need information, they are on the spot. I’m not sure what else an author could ask for. AU is first rate.

After years of organizing my events in-house, we just can’t keep up with all of the correspondence. The team at AU has been such a blessing!

I oversee Student Involvement and Leadership, which means we do A LOT of contracts. Authors Unbound is by far one of the best organizations I’ve worked with. There was no back and forth, back and forth. You readily provided me with the information needed by our General Counsel to execute the contract.

For my first experience working with an agent for a large author program, I thought it went really well! Christie was really great to work with was always so quick to get back to me and answer the million questions I sent her! She was super easy to work with when trying to get our author confirmed/booked and to take care of the contract. I had a really great experience!

This was my first year coordinating an author event on this scale for our district. Both Christie and Dani have been top notch to work with from the very beginning. More than anything I am so appreciative of the open line of communication I always have with both of you. My questions were answered promptly and thoroughly. The contract terms were clear and when there was an issue with a check arriving on time (due to a post office error) you all were understanding and patient while we got it worked out. I honestly do not have suggestions on ways to do things better or differently - the whole process was great for me.
