Jeanie Loiacono

Agent, Editor, Publicist

What I am interested in: 

Fiction – commercial, historical, literary, military, women’s

Nonfiction – commercial (self-help, pop-culture, health/medical), historical, memoirs, military

What I am not interested in: erotica, foreign language translations, horror, LGBTQ, or works with excess profanity and vulgarity.

A facilitator of dreams, Jeanie Loiacono represents over eighty authors. Her forte is mystery, romance, thrillers, historical/military/southern fiction, and all quality fiction/nonfiction. Her passion is to see her authors succeed.

Jeanie Loiacono Events  What a query means to me…South Carolina Writers Workshop

Jeanie has been involved with the literary arts all her life. Starting at a young age, her sister, Barbara, taught her to read and write before she started school. It was never enough to be read to as a child, she had to learn to read so she could go to “the land far, far away” on her own.. She discovered the magic of escaping through the written word and never looked back.

With a sister passionate about literature, a father who was Aid de Camp for two governors, empowering her with the skills to type and compose letters and meaningful essays, and a mother who taught her to speak German, she naturally excelled in language arts. So, to be a part of the literary arts world is a dream come true.

“There is nothing more rewarding than to hold one of my author’s books and know I helped bring it to fruition. I am so blessed and privileged to be able to work with some of the most talented writers in the world.

“What use is living without giving? It is all about making memories.

“I had a home day care for fifteen years and read many children’s books. One I made sure we read a lot was Big Bird on Sesame Street. Big Bird bought a handful of flowers which he intended to decorate his nest with, but on his way home he encountered one friend after another who needed cheering up or who he just wanted to make smile. When he got to his place and turned around there were colorful flowers in every hand on the street, which was better than seeing them in his nest. When I look back at the end of my road, I want to see happy faces; the faces of my authors, family, friends, and those I encountered along the way that were touched by my smile or simple love. To me that is what it is all about; to look back and know what you did made a difference. “Can’t” really isn’t in my vocabulary.”

“Be persistent. Editors change; tastes change; editorial markets change.  Too many beginning writers give up too easily.”  — John Jakes, Author of the North and South trilogy

“Why Authors Need Agents” by Amber Lanier-Nagle, author of Project Keepsake (Native Ink Press)

“Publishing is all about embracing risk. When discussing an idea for a potential new book, I do not try to predict its sales. Rather, I ask whether there is something exciting or useful about it that might capture the imagination of its intended market. If we decide to take it on, I try to focus our efforts on bringing out what was special about the idea behind it.  If it does capture the public imagination, it will reprint many times.  If not, well at least we published a book we thought was exciting.”

  • Laurence King, From ‘An Interview with Laurence King’, Mark Lamster, The Design Observer, 8 September 2011

Mr. King said it well. We, too, believe the same thing.

“God wants you to know that there is a solution. There is. But you must keep going to find it. You cannot stop, you cannot give up. This is about more than just patience. This is about more than just persistence. This is about absolute knowing that God is on your side. When you know this, you never give up and the sense of struggle goes away. You simply keep moving forward knowing that, in the end, all will work out, and that along the way there will be great insights and wonderful remembering.”

  • Love, Your Friend, Neale Donald Walsh

Jeanie, I believe God wants you to know that your job is to help others get to where you are. Why do you suppose you know the terrain so well? Are you acting as The Source for the advancement of others today? Who have you lifted up, and how, in the past 24 hours? And in the next? What is your plan for the next?

Love, your Friend …

Neale Donald Walsh
