    3. New Literary Agent Alert: Holly Lorincz of MacGregor Literary

    Reminder: New literary agents

    (with this spotlight featuring Holly Lorincz of MacGregor Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.




    holly-lorincz-literary-agent

     

    About Holly: Agent Holly Lorincz spent her youth mainlining salmon, venison and books while sitting, shivering, on a dock on the Columbia River. She’s never recovered from her book addiction, moving instead to making and distributing her literary drug of choice. Holly has a degree in Journalism as well as a MAT focused in writing and literature. She was the editor of the literary magazine Perceptions, and then became a high school and college instructor. During that fifteen year run, she was named Teacher of the Year in Oregon, won two national awards from the National Federation of Schools, coached her high school speech team to two State Championships and nine individual Champions, began an editing service, and published various short works.

    (How much money can you expect from selling your first book?)

    After an extended illness, Holly has redefined herself, now living the dream of every college graduate with an English degree: she’s published a novel, her editing service is thriving, and she is a full time MacGregor Literary

    agent. Residing on the Oregon coast with her son, Holly works out of the MacGregor Literary office one block from the Pacific, huddled next to the heater and coffee pot. She is well aware of the shifting role of a literary agent. While seeking traditional publishers for her authors, she also closely works with clients on alternative publishing options, career development, marketing plans, and media training.

    She is seeking: “I am currently only accepting general market submissions in these areas: historical romance, literary or classic westerns, political or conspiracy thrillers, women’s fiction, or literary fiction.”

    (Hate writing synopses? Here are nuts & bolts pointers for you.)

    How to contact: Please note that while MacGregor Literary, as a whole, is closed to submissions (as per their website), Holly confirmed to me personally that she is open to new queries & clients. In order to submit, authors can email queries to holly [at] macgregorliterary.com. Please include the genre in the subject line.

    4. Agent Spotlight: Caitlen Rubino Bradway of LKG Agency

    This is not technically a New Agent Alert

    , because agent Caitlen Rubino Bradway of LKG Agency is not a new agent. But this does resemble such an alert because Caitlen is making an open call for new submissions from writers. So check her out and see if you can send her (or her co-agent) a query.

     

    agent-caitlen-rubino-bradway

     

    About Caitlen: “I joined the LKG Agency

    in 2008, thereby disproving the theory that no English major ever does anything with their degree. I have enjoyed my apprenticeship under Lauren Galit very much, and I am now actively looking to build my own list. In my spare time, I am an author in my own right (or is that write?). My first book, Lady Vernon and Her Daughter, which I co-wrote with my mother, was released by Crown in 2009. We also contributed to Jane Austen Made Me Do It, published by Ballantine in 2011. My first middle grade novel, Ordinary Magic, was published by Bloomsbury Children’s in 2012.”

    (Do you need multiple literary agents if you write different genres?)

    She is seeking: “I personally am looking for middle grade and young adult fiction. In teen novels, Sci-fi/fantasy is my sweet spot, but I’m open to anything as long as it doesn’t have zombies. (For a more detailed description of what I’m looking for, you can check out my blog post at our website

    .)

    “Also, the LKG Agency [which has one other agent] is always on the lookout for nonfiction, both practical and narrative. We specialize in women’s focused how-to, such as parenting, lifestyle, health & nutrition, and beauty, but we are open to a lot of nonfiction genres. (For a full list you can check out the submission guidelines

    on our website.)”

    (The skinny on why to sign with a new/newer literary agent.)

    How to contact: “We are looking for email queries only. Nonfiction queries should be sent to lkgquery [at] lkgagency.com; we ask that you please mention any publicity you have at your disposal in your query letter. For middle grade and YA queries, email crubinobradway [at] lkgagency.com.”

    11. Literary Agent Andy Ross Seeks Clients and Queries

    Readers of my blog know that I constantly feature new literary agents

    who are seeking clients and queries. Occasionally, I also spotlight established agents who put out a call for submissions, and that’s what’s happening this week. Meet agent Andy Ross of The Andy Ross Agency, who has put out a call for new queries.

     

    andy-ross-literary-agent

     

    About Andy: “I opened my literary agency

    in 2008. I am a member of the Association of Author Representatives (AAR). Prior to agenting, I was the owner of the legendary Cody’s Books in Berkeley for 30 years. During that time, I sold more than 10 million books and hosted over 5,000 events for some of the world’s greatest authors. In 1989, Cody’s was fire bombed, probably in retaliation for the store featuring  Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses. This  made us the first victim of international terrorism in The United States, which goes to show that bookselling can be a dangerous business. We never stopped selling the book.” You can visit his “Ask the Agent” blog.

    (Can writers query multiple agents at the same agency?)

    He is seeking: “My agency represents books in a wide range of subjects including: narrative nonfiction, science, journalism, history, current events, and fiction. For nonfiction, I look for writing with a strong voice, robust arc, and books that tell a big story about culture and society by authors with the authority to write about their subject. I am also seeking works of literary, commercial, and young adult fiction. I like stories about real  people in the real world. No vampires and trolls, thank you very much.”

    How to contact: Send queries and materials only by email to andyrossagency@hotmail.com. You can see full submission guidelines online

    13. Agent Anna Olswanger Puts Out a Call For New Submissions

    Although this is not technically a New Agent Alert

    because agent Anna Olswanger of Liza Dawson Associates is not new, but it resembles one because Anna confirmed to me that she is actively seeking submissions and queries. Read on to learn more about Anna and see if she is a good fit for your work.

     

    anna-olswanger-agent

     

    About Anna: Anna Olswanger has been an agent with Liza Dawson Associates

    for eight years. In addition to being a literary agent, Anna is the author two children’s books: Shlemiel Crooks, a Sydney Taylor Honor Book and PJ Library Book, and Greenhorn, an illustrated novel for middle grade readers. In 2011, a family musical based on Shlemiel Crooks premiered at Merkin Concert Hall in New York. Anna lives in the New York metropolitan area. You can read more about her at her website www.olswanger.com. You can also find her on Twitter.

    (Learn how to protect yourself when considering a independent editor for your book.)

    She is seeking: picture books, adult nonfiction, historical mysteries (adult). “I like working with author-illustrators of picture books for children, and I like art that is sophisticated and that leans towards fine art. I am hoping to work with more authors of serious nonfiction (politics, science, finance). Kindness to animals is a big interest of mine, as are Judaica and Israel. Two books I wish I could have agented are Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle by Dan Senor and Saul Singer and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. I have some interest in middle grade fiction

    , none in YA. In the case of middle grade fiction, the writing has to really sparkle. I would love to represent an author of adult or middle grade historical mysteries whose research is impeccable, and whose writing is sharp and reflects the research, but without the research showing. I wish there were an ancient Israel equivalent of Steven Saylor’s ancient Rome mysteries.”

    How to contact: E-mail only: aolswanger [at] lizadawsonassociates.com. No snail mail submissions or phone calls. Please include the first five pages of your manuscript in the body of an email and tell me about the manuscript and your background as a writer in your query letter

    15. New Literary Agent Alert: Andrew Wetzel of Martin Literary Management

    Reminder: Newer agents are golden opportunities for new writers because they’re likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time and postage.

     

     

     

     

    About Andrew: Andrew is a relatively recent transplant to the West Coast and joins the Martin Literary Management team after spending three years in the New York publishing industry, first with a brief spell at Soft Skull Press and later as a junior literary scout for Aram Fox, Inc. The intersection of the book and film/TV world is one of his favorite aspects of working in the industry and he always keep an eye out for properties that would lend themselves to that treatment.

    He is seeking: “Speaking of my tastes, the areas I’d most like to carve out for myself with Martin Literary Management would be ‘Literary with a capital L’ fiction (think Eugenides, Houellebecq, Murakami, Cormac McCarthy, Martin Amis) as well as the dark corner of the literary list that is slightly less pretentious and slightly more commercial (think Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, Dennis Johnson). That’s a very ‘male’ list and it is definitely where my personal tastes lie. I love a great story but style is just as important to me sometimes. I’m also very interested in reading Young Adult novels, specifically those with a macabre sensibility or a fascinating dystopian or fantasy setting.

    “As well, I’m deeply interested in pop-nonfiction (think Mary Roach, Legs McNeil and, admittedly, gimmicky books based on popular blogs/Tumblrs) and that area of the industry my old coworkers called “Nonfiction for boys”: funny books by comedians, pop culture oral histories (!), books by-or-about criminals, memoirs of all sort and stripe, though instead of the inspirational memoir side of it, it would be a mix of warts-and-all athlete/musician/comedian memoirs (or possibly even the sleazy memoir, like Tucker Max/Neil Strauss, if someone had an interesting new angle to that type of book). Lastly, I have a deep nerdy love for graphic novels, though I realize how hard that market is to crack.”

    How to submit: “Query me at Andrew (at) MartinLiteraryManagement.com.”

I prefer women’s fiction, romance, suspense/thriller, romantic suspense, historical, Amish, Biblical, Americana, Regencies, and mainstream. Occasionally, I consider literary manuscripts if they can sell in a traditional CBA or ABA market. I will also accept shorter fiction that fits the requirements of Love Inspired, Love Finds You, and Avon Inspire. In non-fiction I will accept authors with a strong platform. Specific genres in which I am interested include current affairs, political, home life, marriage, crafts, parenting, health and diet, how-to, popular culture, psychology, narrative non-fiction, science, self-help, women’s issues, devotionals, and memoir. I especially like receiving manuscripts from Moms (or Dads) who are writing relevant, well-received, and popular parenting blogs.
