Hi Everyone! Long time, no blog! I have been buried with deadlines, client edits, and submissions, but I had to announce that my intern for the last 9 months, Kristin Miller, has just been promoted to associate agent. Kristin and I are teaming up to expand the YA and MG side of D4EO, and I couldn't be more happy!
You can find Kristin's submission guidelines HERE.
For the month of February ONLY, if I have already passed on your material, you are free to query her. Once March 1 hits, we ask that you choose one agent to query, and if we think it is a better fit for another D4EO agent, we'll pass it along.
And of course, I am still building my own client list and eager to find more great work.
My current wishlist (all of below are for middle grade and YA only, no works for the adult market)
Romance. This will always be on my gimme-gimme list!
Historicals, particularly based heavily on real events or people. I just read REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnely based on the French Revolution and woud love something in that era!
Sci-FI-- I'd love to get a cool sci-fi for my list. I'm reading Beth Revis' ACROSS THE UNIVERSE and loving it.
Gritty-real world YA. For whatever reason, I just cannot get enough of this subset of YA. I find myself requesting one after another after another. I simply LOVE books that deal with tough issues.
And of course, I am open to anything *not* on the list as well, but that's my particular wish list. Please read my submission guidelines carefully, as well as Kristin's page, and then query one of us.
If you have any questions, please do let me know!
Thanks, and good luck!
