Anne Sowards, Ace/Roc/NAL

I am looking for fantasy and science fiction with wonderful, distinct characters and a story I can’t put down. I’d love something with a distinct voice and a high concept, something that can attract mainstream readers as well as genre readers (like THE MARTIAN or GAME OF THRONES). I’m particularly looking for military science fiction, … Continue reading

Elana Roth Parker, Red Tree Literary

I’m looking for middle-grade and young adult novels, and some picture books by author/illustrators. I’m not picky about genre—I’m mainly interested in strong plots (make me keep turning pages, please) told by voices I haven’t heard before. I want books that I can come back to over and over again. Make me think, but don’t … Continue reading

My clients are all unique but the one thing that they all share is a distinct voice. I’m looking for that specific author telling a story only they could tell.

(Please note that Julia is open to international submissions, and has many American and Canadian clients.) I’m always looking for contemporary MG, YA, NA, WF, and Romance, and psychological thrillers. I’m more of a realistic kind of girl; it’s hard to make me fall in love with Sci-Fi and Fantasy, though I’m open to Fantasy that’s … Continue reading

Annie Bomke, Annie Bomke Literary Agency

My absolute favorite genre is psychological thrillers/mysteries.  I love character-rich literary fiction.  I also love historical fiction and fiction set in foreign lands.  If you combine all of those elements and send me a psychological, historical, literary mystery set in a foreign land, I’d be thrilled.  I like books with multicultural and LGBT characters.  I … Continue reading
