Jennifer Haskin was my agent for several months and I found her to be dedicated, knowledgeable, helpful, energetic and devoted to promoting her clients’ best interests. She was most creative in exploring new ways to get her stable’s work before the publishers. I wish her the best of success in any new endeavor and wouldn’t hesitate, should the opportunity arise, to work with her again.

Jenn, over these last months I have been impressed by your unique combination of industry knowledge, professionalism and personal warmth. You have been clear, informative and supportive while working on various editing, concept and contractual issues. Thank you for the energy and insights you have provided. I honestly wish the very best in a new position and hope we will cross paths again.

I am pleased to recommend Jennifer Haskin for the position of literary agent. As one of her clients, she has demonstrated professionalism and knowledge in the field of publication. I can say with confidence that my experience of navigating the complex world of publishing was made understandable thought the expertise of Mrs. Haskin. Without her belief in my writing, I would still be seeking representation and the dream of publication would be just that—but because of her capability, I am now a published author. Not only is she supportive of her authors, she works tirelessly for them. Her enthusiasm, dedication, and familiarity in the realm of publishing are building blocks used to guarantee and acquire the best possible contracts for her authors. After signing on with Mrs. Haskin she secured a publishing contract for me within two months. She is warm and friendly, an award writing author, and possess a critical eye for talent. Not only does she encourage her authors but seeks the best possible outcome for her clients and happily achieves that result for them.

Jenn, you were so helpful and encouraging to me. I appreciated how specific your comments were, and the help in knowing how to proceed. I know that wherever I land in my journey, you and the rest of Metamorphosis will be cheering me on!
~Beth Carroll (Author)
I am so pleased to have Metamorphosis Literary Agency represent me. Jenn has been a pleasure to work with. From the moment I signed she was in my corner—promptly responding to my inquiries, keeping me abreast of developments and occasionally emailing me interesting articles about writing, publishing and marketing. She is genuine in her desire to help me succeed. Within three weeks I had two requests for fulls. It’s like having my own personal cheerleader!

Jennifer Haskin is a talented writer and artist that is a huge asset to what ever project she manages or creates. Jennifer has a personality that is witty and gracious at the same time. She takes note of what she learns from every situation and applies it to future endeavors. Jennifer is a great wealth of knowledge and would be a resource for whomever or where ever she applies her talents.
I attended Jennifer Haskin’s workshop on Ways Authors Can Market Themselves at the 2017 Missouri Writers Guild Conference. Jennifer shared great insights and strategies for authors to build their brand, market their books, and reach the most readers. I especially liked her creative live demonstration of the differences between branding, advertising, marketing, and word of mouth. Her presentation created a lively discussion amongst attendees and benefited beginning as well as seasoned authors
The help so far has been fantastic, and the patience has been even better. Its clear that you have a full understanding of how agents work and the things they’re looking for. You listened to everything I said and took the time to break down each individual thing we discussed. Friendliness is amazing, there’s no doubt about that, communication can be a little long, but i can’t be a hypocrite there, i do the same things myself when it comes to replying to people, ha! I personally feel as if you’ve done an amazing job with helping out. I’m very happy and I’ve been able to learn a ton myself about how to properly write a query. I have no doubt that i will be coming to you more in the future for other things i will need help on. I’m comfortable with that. And on the topic of comfort, originally i felt kind of awkward asking help with my query and first chapter, i had never done that before, but when we emailed each other the awkwardness on my end faded very quickly.

“I really valued your reviews and found your notes very helpful.”
-Alexis Leder (Author)
Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for all the help you’ve given me.
Your knowledge of the industry is nothing short of fantastic! For someone trying to break in, you’ve been extremely accessible, responsive and helpful. Your engaging personality helps, too. Everyone else in the business seems too busy to even return emails. You take your time and explain it in a way that makes sense and is very helpful. You always respond like a friend, which means a lot.
As I go forward with this little adventure, I just wanted you to know, you continue to provide excellent advice and a comforting smile that keeps me going.

Jennifer has been such a blessing in my writing life. She has been so kind and patient in helping me with the smallest of details on my query letter, and even offered to help with my synopsis and beginning pages of my story. She is someone who roots for you on your writing journey and will go above and beyond to help you get there. I am so glad to have had the opportunity of receiving her feedback to learn and create a great query letter. Thank you again Jennifer, you are truly a wonderful soul.
Jennifer is helpful in guiding new authors on a variety of topics from marketing to query edits. She is extremely knowledgeable, welcoming and easy to work with. Would recommend her to any new author looking for advice on writing, marketing or publishing.
