***LITERARY AGENTS***

Rena Rossner of The Deborah Harris Agency
Rena Rossner is a literary and foreign rights agent at The Deborah Harris Agency. She studied at Johns Hopkins University’s Writing Seminars Program, where she double-majored in poetry and non-fiction writing.

I'm actively seeking picture books, middle grade and young adult books. I love science fiction and fantasy for all ages (kids and adult) – in adult books my taste skew more towards the literary, but I'm open to falling in love with something in any genre. I have a particular interest in Jewish themed,  Israeli or biblically related books. I love historical fiction. I'm a foodie, so anything food related would also catch my eye, and lately I've been interested in seeing some mysteries and thrillers.While I'm not based in the USA, what I offer is a global perspective. I travel to the US and to many book fairs all over Europe and the world and I specialize in foreign rights.

Recognized for her obsessive-compulsive attention to detail and crazy-fast reading ability, Kaylee joined Dee Mura Literary as a professional copyeditor, proofreader, and administrative assistant.

Maria Vicente of P.S. Literary 
Maria Vicente is an Associate Agent at P.S. Literary Agency. Her reading preferences vary across categories and she is interested in writers with unique and creative concepts. She has a literary blog at ibelieveinstory.com

Maria is looking for literary and commercial fiction, young adult, middle grade, high-concept picture books, and nonfiction proposals in the pop culture, pop psychology, design, and lifestyle categories. She has a particular interest in magical realism, fiction with visual components, and nonfiction inspired by online culture.
Terrie grew up on a steady diet of real-life adventure and believed until her early 30’s that days spent with explorers, treasure hunters  and other adrenaline junkies was perfectly typical. Her insatiable curiosity led her to positions within the international media and several award-winning writing and promotions teams at venues including CBS, NBC, Penguin (UK) and Hobsons Press (Cambridge University Press). The recipient of the Emmy, Queen’s Service Award (UK), La Voz y Papel (Spain), and Young Journalist of the Year, Terrie read English Literature at Cambridge, studied Creative Writing at NYU and Journalism at CU-Denver, and will tell you she’s equally proud of the “Master of Mirth” status awarded by Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus.

A series of life changing events most anyone else would have labeled “accidents” brought Terrie back to her home in Colorado and after 22 months of rehab, she joined the Anita Kushen Agency in 2009 as a Foreign Rights Specialist. Shortly thereafter, she acquired and renamed the agency.  

Terrie wants your very best MG and picture/board books and believes in well-written, well-presented works that touch the tender minds and hearts of young people. She enjoys humorous (not gross), engaging (not mean), adventurous fiction, beautifully illustrated picture/board books and highly expressive and entertaining nonfiction. Dare to thrill her.

Christa Heschke of McIntosh & Otis 
Christa Heschke interned at both Writers House and Sterling Lord Literistic, and has been at McIntosh and Otis, Inc. in the children's literature department since 2009. She is actively looking for picture books, middle-grade, and young-adult projects, and is currently building her list. For picture books, she’s drawn to cute, character-driven stories. For middle grade, she’s looking for contemporary stories, humor, adventure, and magical realism for both boys and girls. In the teen arena, she is especially interested in contemporary fiction, horror, thrillers/mysteries, and novels with a romantic angle, with strong, quirky protagonists. She’s also interested in selectively acquiring steampunk and fantasy (urban and high) that push the boundaries of what’s currently on the shelves, perhaps a new take on these genres that has yet to be seen.

For further details regarding what Christa is looking for, go HERE

"Julia is specializing in representing international authors of unique and captivating commercial fiction, namely thrillers and romance as well as Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, Women's Fiction/Chick Lit. Julia isn't the best fit for sci-fi and futuristic stories and Fantasy should be set in the real world. She's not too keen on vampire and dragon stories, or Harry Potter read-alikes. Other than that, Julia's open to all sub-genres. A hooking plot, engaging characters, and a fresh voice are a must. Bonus points if your manuscript features a sports theme, boarding school, or sports/summer camp, is an amazingly original contemporary retelling of a classic, is set on a ranch, or is a creepy psychological thriller with a stalker theme. Double bonus points if it's in the vein of Friday Night Lights, Center Stage, Pleasantville, or Sliding Doors. Triple bonus points for a male hero that'll leave me swooning." 

Jordy Albert is a Literary Agent and co-founder of The Booker Albert Literary Agency.

Perkins Agency and the Corvisiero Literary Agency. Jordy also works as a freelance editor/PR Director. She enjoys studying languages (French/Japanese), spends time teaching herself how to knit, is a HUGE fan of Doctor Who, and loves dogs.

She is looking for stories that capture her attention and keep her turning the page. She is looking for a strong voice, and stories that have the ability to surprise her. She loves intelligent characters with a great sense of humor. She would love to see fresh, well-developed plots featuring travel with unique, exotic settings, competitions, or time travel. Jordy is specifically looking for:

* Middle Grade: contemporary, fantasy, action/adventure, or historical.
* YA: sci-fi, dystopian/post-apocalyptic, contemporary, historical--Though I am open to looking at other sub-genres, I'm looking for YA that has a very strong romantic element.

***EDITORS***

Kara Leigh Miller of Anaiah Press, LLC
Kara is the Managing Editor of the Surge Imprint (YA/NA) at Anaiah Press,
which is a Christian digital-first publishing house dedicated to
presenting quality faith-based fiction and nonfiction books to the public.
Kara combines her knowledge and prior editing experience with a passion
for the written word and a love of YA. She is a multi-genre published
author, and an avid reader with eclectic tastes that range from the tame
to the taboo. She loves to help her fellow authors recognize their dreams
of publication and is very excited about working toward that goal with
Anaiah Press.

Current Wish List:
My passion is romance and young love. Show me strong, unique characters
with real-world problems and learnable life lessons. Love triangles,
dystopian worlds, cowboys, modern day retellings of fairy tales, and
stories with an element of suspense excite me. I love any story that will
put me through a range of emotions. Bonus points if you can make me cry.
Specifically, I'd like to see the following:
~ Contemporary settings, preferably small towns, or a story set in the
deep south, or at a college.
~ Dual narrative POVs. I'm tired of the heroine's first person POV. I want
to get the male perspective, too.
~ Humorous characters that can make me laugh out loud.
~ A strong sense of family & family values -- even if it's dysfunctional.

Amy Treadwell of Chronicle Books
Amy Treadwell is a senior editor at Chronicle Books, mostly working on food and drink titles but she also acquires craft and sewing, parenting, and decorating and home décor. Offbeat topics like guacamole or macarons intrigue Amy and if wine or beer is involved, all the better. She also specializes in gift formats from trivia games to cupcake kits in addition to traditional cookbooks. I love anything and everything about baking.

Wish list: For food and drink titles she's looking for the uptrending single subject cookbook, recipes with a strong personal point of view or extraordinary story, a super easy appetizer book, anything on chocolate, or an in depth treatise on an iconic ingredient (olive oil or butter for example).

Meredith is the digital editor for YA and NA at Bloomsbury Spark, launching this December. You can find her on twitter at @MeredithJHRich

Anna Masrud of Spencer Hill Press
Anna Masrud discovered her love of editing in high school while fretting over the grammatical errors in her literature assignments. When not fretting, she appreciates the finer things in life: loose leaf tea, the frozen tundra of her homeland, and new episodes of The Walking Dead.

Current wishlist: YA & NA fantasy, steampunk, anything with a strong heroine as the main character.

Kisa Whipkey of REUTS Publications
Kisa Whipkey is a dark fantasy author, a martial arts demo team expert, and complete sucker for Cadbury Mini-eggs. She's also the Senior Editor for YA/NA publisher, REUTS Publications. She developed a passion for storytelling at a young age and has pursued that love through animation, writing, video game design and demo teams until finally finding her home in editing. She believes in good storytelling, regardless of medium, and applauds anything featuring a snarky lead character, a complicated narrative structure, and brilliant/uncommon analogies. Currently, she lives in the soggy Pacific Northwest with her husband and plethora of electronics.
When not working or avoiding the rain like a cat thrown in a bathtub, she browses the submission pile, looking for the following:
--Fantasy (Especially the dark variety and containing a psychological element)
--Brilliantly written contemporary fiction
--New twists on old YA themes (i.e. Male MC, innovative paranormal romance, non-sparkly vampires, etc.)
--Sci-fi/Dystopian/Fairy Tale Retellings
--High Fantasy with lots of adventure thrown in, a la Kristin Cashore's Graceling and Sarah J Maas's Throne of Glass

Her personal blog--featuring sarcastic commentary on all things storytelling--is www.kisawhipkey.com. Or connect with her via Twitter: @kisawhipkey. And, of course, to learn more about REUTS Publications, please visit www.reuts.com.

Stephen Morgan of Entangled Publishing 
Before joining Entangled, Stephen worked in various facets of the publishing, magazine, and communications industries as a writer, editor, and interview coordinator. He currently assists in developing and coordinating his university’s forthcoming MFA program in Narrative Journalism and Screenwriting. His Master’s is in Journalism & Mass Communication. His Master’s thesis, Book DNA, involved a content analysis of what elements contribute to commercially and critically successful genre fiction. You can reach him at Stephen (at) entangledpublishing.com. Follow him on Twitter at @Stephen_Edits.

Stephen is looking for high concept mixed genre pieces within younger and upper YA, New Adult, and Contemporary. Young adult historical time traveling adventure? New adult vampire detective agency? Steampunk murder mystery? You get the drift. Let him see it! Just keep in mind that all submissions must include strong romantic elements.

Stephen also has a barely contained addiction for stories that take place in the fashion or publishing industry. He watches You've Got Mail, The Devil Wears Prada, and The Proposal at least ten times every year. He welcomes you to exploit his addiction without mercy.


He accepts stories of all heat levels. And don’t worry if your story doesn’t fit his above criteria. All he really requires is a strong romance and a strong story. Find a way to write your story with commercial elements and a literary voice and you’ll immediately have his attention. He also adores a fresh, fun, flirty voice. LGBT characters and stories more than welcome.

Kathleen is looking for works of paranormal, sci-fi, and speculative fiction

What Kathleen says about her wishlist: "I love when a little romance is thrown into the mix. A strong protagonist with compelling motivation is a must, as well as a believable setting."

-YA Contemporary (like Stephanie Perkins or Jennifer Echols or Rainbow Rowell) or thriller/mystery. Could be heists, film noir-like mystery, psychological suspense, etc. Must have a strong romantic element. 
-Angsty, sexy, addictive NA or adult romance. Give me anti-heroes, bad boys, fighters, etc with revenge or blackmail plots.

-For Bliss (Entangled's small-town category romance line): I'd love to see quirky towns and fun characters. Think Hart of Dixie and Gilmore Girls. 
-For adult/NA/YA: I'd love to see a wild child heroine. Someone a little crazy/quirky/unique or from the wrong side of the tracks. 
-Male/Male. For adult romance, YA, NA, or novellas. Any heat level. I'm a big fan of Josh Lanyon, K.A. Mitchell, Kelley York, David Levithan. 

Emily Ward is the Managing Editor for the Rush (YA/NA) line of Entranced Publishing, a publisher of quality romance eBooks. She's written various YA and NA books and is studying to teach English overseas. 

Wishlist: Contemporary YA or NA Romance. I need characters who are resilient, funny, and pro-active, ones who stick with me long after I've put down the book. Show me international locations, a diverse cast, a killer romance, and above all, an addictive read.

Mandy Schoen is the managing editor of Swoon Romance and otherwise keeps plenty busy traveling the world, slaying dragons, falling in love, and whatever else her TBR pile has in store for her. When she’s not reading, hanging out with her family, or acquiring and editing incredible stories for Swoon Romance, she can be found wrapped firmly around a cup of flavored coffee whilst pondering ways to convince her husband that adopting a wallaby is a good idea. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband, her boxer, and her Nook, but it’s probably easier to find her on Twitter at @Mandy_Schoen.

Mandy’s Submissions Wish-list
Mandy is always looking for the next happily-ever-after, and doesn’t so much mind if the path there is of the sweet or the sexy variety. She is currently most interested in contemporary Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult contemporary romance. (She is NOT interested in YA paranormal.)

She wants to see more dual-narrative POVs, male protagonists who are not necessarily McHottie (sexier inside than they are out), unique contemporary fairy-tale retellings (although not YA paranormal), quirky female protagonists with heart, witty dialogue, a relatable voice, settings with as much personality as the characters, deeply flawed but redeemable men, and clever humor. She enjoys a lighthearted tone as much as a deeply emotive one, and she loves to see complex characters in familiar situations.

Theresa is an Editor for Entangled Publishing, mom and step-mom to five boys, and coffee addict. Before securing a position with Entangled Publishing, she worked as a freelance editor for multiple publishers and individual authors.A dangerous bad boy hero or a twist on mythology, religious theories, or legends are almost always sure win with Theresa. When she isn’t working, reading, crafting, or attending her sons’ sporting events, she can usually be found on Twitter at @TheresaMCole.

Theresa's Wishlist:
*Note: this list applies to all imprints and manuscript lengths
  • Category romances featuring the following tropes: bad boy/playboy reformed, enemies to lovers, fling, revenge, older brother's best friend, opposites attract
  • Dark, gritty paranormals with tortured heros and sassy heroines
  • Fairy Tale retellings with original twists
  • All types of mythology (Greek, Celtic, Norse, etc)
  • Stories set in other countries (Ireland, Scottland, Italy, Russia, Germany, etc) – anywhere, as long as the country is rich with culture and the story incorporates that culture. BUT, if you take me to another country, be sure to fully immerse me in that fabulous setting!
  •  Twists on religion (any religion) – bonus points if secret societies are involved
  • Alternate histories with paranormal elements – was Jack the Ripper a paranormal being? or Hitler? Put your own spin on history and use an idea that hasn’t been done before.
Bio: As graduate of Miami University of Ohio with a self-designed major focusing in young adult literature and social media marketing, Chelsea attended the Denver Publishing Institute and graduated with a graduate certificate in publishing. Young adult literature has always been her passion, but it wasn't until college that she realized she could actually do something with it. Now, as an Associate Editor at illusio & baqer, Chelsea is focused on finding authors and works that will have a lasting impact on their readers.

Wishlist: I’m looking for strong works in middle grade, young adult, and new adult fiction of any genre, though I'm most interested in contemporary/realistic fiction, dystopian fiction, thriller/suspense, science fiction, and fantasy.

Stephanie Sauvinet of World Weaver Press

As the reading editor for World Weaver Press, Stephanie happily meddles in slush pile goodness. She wanted to be an archeologist for a long time just so she could find the Stargate but settled for the endless possibilities of the SF/F genres.She is a science-fiction nerd who doesn't get tangled in the "Are you a Star Wars fan or a Trekkie?" debacle because she loves both and doesn't see why she would have to choose between Luke and Picard (or Kirk if you're going old school.) When she doesn't read or write, Stephanie practices as an oncology nurse, loves puzzling her cats by speaking French and enjoys the wonders of New Orleans. Her twitter: @stephaniesauvin. You can also  find WWP online: @WorldWeaver_wwp  and http://worldweaverpress.com/

Wishlist:
WWP specializes in Fantasy, Science-Fiction and Paranormal including most respective subgenres and mashups.

More specifically at this very moment:
Space SF
Far-future SF
Voice driven UF
Adult or YA/NA PNR
Punk fiction

Nancy Cassidy of Etopia Press
Nancy, Managing Editor of Etopia, loves writing and reading and everything about the world of fiction. Except maybe zombies. After years of writing technical sales proposals (see hatred of zombies), Nancy brought the passion she felt about books to a more public level, and followed her writing dreams. A member of the Romance Writers of America and the Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada, she is published in erotic romance under the name Lilly Cain with a variety of publishers. Recently she began to write YA sci-fi under the name of Anne Rose.
In the spring of 2011, Nancy began a year-long, distance internship with top New York literary agency, The Bent Agency, as a romance specialist, reviewing queries and manuscripts. In August 2011, she opened TheRedPenCoach.com and began freelance work, editing all genres of fiction, with the exception of picture books or middle grade fiction. In July 2012 she joined the Editors Association of Canada. Now she’s Managing Editor at Etopia Press and loving it!

What she’s Looking For
Nancy’s looking for Contemporary romance with a twist, anything fresh in Paranormal romance (if you send her a vampire story it had really better be new – this is not a challenge!). She would love to see something delicious in a cowboy erotic romance, and suspense of any romantic heat level.

Denise grew up in a small town on Long Island where she spent many lazy afternoons with a good book. She would read at the beach, outside beneath a tree, anywhere she could find to curl up and lose herself in a story for a few hours. She loves reading as much now as she did back then, only now she enjoys the added pleasure of helping those stories evolve. 

Wishlist: 
I am always on the lookout for romance in any of the following genres:
Paranormal and Urban Fantasy – Shifters, realms, ghosts, psychics… Anything and everything paranormal!
Suspense – Hold-your-breath, can’t-stop-turning-the-pages, suspense!
Action/Adventure, Dark psychological thrillers, and Amateur sleuths are great too.

She wears many hats, as the saying goes. Which is an odd saying in this case, as she rarely looks good in hats.


Wishlist:

Far-future Science-Fiction
Voice driven Urban Fantasy
Adult or YA/NA Paranormal Romance
