This Week's New Literary Agents to Query

Reminder: New literary agents are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list. 

1. William Callahan of Waxman Leavell Literary

This is not technically a New Agent Alert because William is actually an established rep in the business. That said, this post will resemble such an agent spotlight because William wants writers alerted that he is actively building his client list right now. Such a call-out from an established agent happens rarely, so learn more about William and see if he is a good fit for your book. He is seeking: "For nonfiction, I am currently most interested in narrative nonfiction and memoir, comedy and pop culture, and American history. For fiction, I represent crime and commercial thrillers, and literary fiction."

2. Kaylee Davis of Dee Mura Literary

She is seeking: "Kaylee is actively seeking to build her client list in the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, speculative fiction, and young adult; bonus points if there are elements of steampunk, coming-of-age, urban fantasy, espionage, social commentary, or counter culture. Kaylee is drawn to exciting, thought-provoking stories with a fresh perspective that explores what it means to be human. She is happy to work with new and emerging writers."
