People: Bykofsky Associates Takes Over DSM Agency List

Sheree Bykofsky Associates has taken over the list of DSM Agency, as Doris Michaels “decided to make a transition in her life, which meant finding a new home for her clients.” Colleagues for a long time, they report: “Sheree and Doris realized that they ran their agencies in much the same way and Doris decided to look no further in her search for the perfect home for her list. It has been an extremely smooth transition, and they both feel like this was meant to be.”

DSM Agency 20th Anniversary Announcement

We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of my DSM Agency on November 3rd, 2014, with a big and exciting change. It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Sheree Bykofsky Associates, Inc.
Sheree will be taking over our list of DSM Agency titles, effective immediately.

Thank you all for your business over the past 20+ years. Sheree Bykofsky Associates, Inc. (SBA Agency) is a member of the Association of Author’s Representatives (AAR) and will continue to work with all of you to handle the current — and hopefully future — intellectual properties in the same professional manner that you have experienced with the DSM Agency.

I first met Sheree 20 years ago as I was starting my company and she was kind enough to be my mentor. So now we have come full circle and I’m extremely proud to leave you all in good hands.

Sheree Bykofsky Associates, Inc.
4326 Harbor Beach Blvd.

Sheree and I are thrilled to be moving forward in this new direction and are optimistic about the future of publishing.


Agency News

DSM Agency is currently not taking on new projects. After 20 years in business, with 90 clients, about 600 deals made (over 100 domestic, 450 translations, 50 subsidiary rights), and 20 interns, I have decided to concentrate on the business we currently have and take a break from adding new clients.  The industry is changing rapidly and I need time to rethink the literary agency business model.  Our family also continues to mourn the loss of my dear brother and his son: http://adventuremagazine.co.nz/tribute-to-marty-and-denali-schmidt/.

All the best,
