Happy Friday, Blog Readers!
Here are names of two new literary agents seeking writers. They were listed in a Guide to Literary Agents email I had received last year. I found the email while cleaning out my inbox today.
2 Agents Seeking Your Query NOW
Click on any name below to see the full mini-profile on the GLA Blog (with submission instructions). Good luck querying!
1. Whitley Abell of Inklings Literary
She is seeking: Whitley is primarily interested in Young Adult, Middle Grade, and select Upmarket Women's fiction. She likes characters who are relatable yet flawed, hooks that offer new points of view and exciting adventures, vibrant settings that become active characters in their own right, and a story that sticks with the reader long after turning the last page, be it contemporary or historical, realistic or supernatural, tragic or quirky. She loves mythology and literary re-imaginings, heartbreaking contemporary novels, historical suspense, and craving cute romantic comedies for YA through adult (ex: Sophie Kinsella, Lauren Morrill, Stephanie Perkins). She is not interested in vampires, werewolves, angels, zombies, dystopian societies, steampunk, or epic fantasy. Please no paranormal / fantasy for adults.
2. Alexander Slater of Trident Media Group
He is seeking: Alexander is interested in children's, middle grade, and young adult fiction and nonfiction, from new and established authors. As he says, "I'm looking for projects that will rise above the rest...characters you'll remember well past childhood...books that translate well to film because within them contain incredible stories, not because they're the latest trend." He particularly loves authors like Frank Portman, Jim Shepard, Jenny Han, and Rainbow Rowell.
