| December 2nd, 2010 | No Comments »

Victoria handles audio rights for  Liza Dawson Associates and is currently building her own client list. Victoria’s interests include YA fiction, adult women’s fiction, romance and literary fiction. She can’t get enough truly well done magical realism and is a sucker for great historical novels. Victoria is open to narrative nonfiction, travel, memoir, pop culture or social science takes on current debates. She looks for sharp humor in unexpected places, a story that places her firmly in another world, and characters she can’t leave behind. She loves strong voices and high concept hooks, or really well written stories about timeless subjects. Victoria comes to Liza Dawson Associates after two years with Trident Media Group as an assistant to Jenny Bent, Scott Miller and Ellen Levine. She grew up in New England, but has lived and traveled all over the world, including New Zealand, England, and a post-graduate year in China.

Lois Winston is an agent with the Ashley Grayson Literary Agency as well as an award-winning author of novel length fiction and non-fiction. She began her association with the agency as a client. In 2005 she was invited to join the agency as an associate, opening what she likes to call their East Coast division. She continues to be represented by one of the other agents within the agency.  Lois currently represents authors who write romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, women’s fiction, mystery, and horror, but voice is more important to her than genre.  She’s not interested in erotica, inspirational novels of any genre, westerns, or paranormal books that feature vampires and shape-shifters.

Kristin Nelson

| December 2nd, 2010 | 1 Comment »

Being an avid reader practically since birth, Kristin is equally happy reading a Pulitzer prize-winning literary novel for her book club as she is reading a sexy historical-romance. She established Nelson Literary Agency, LLC, in 2002 after the literary agent she was working for expressed dismay that Kristin wanted to represent genre fiction–gasp!–as well as literary novels. Forming NLA was absolutely the right thing to do. When she is not busy selling books, Kristin plays tennis and also enjoys playing bridge (where she is the youngest person in her club). She can also be found hiking in the mountains with her husband and their dog, Chutney. Kristin is looking for a good story well told. How you tell that story doesn’t need to fit in a neat little category. For specifics, check out her examples on our Submission Guidelines page and read about Kristin’s latest sales at Publishers Marketplace Photo by Daniel Hirsh share:

Fox Literary is a boutique agency which represents commercial fiction, along with select works of literary fiction and nonfiction that have broad commercial appeal. I am actively seeking the following: young adult fiction (all genres), science fiction/fantasy, romance, historical fiction, thrillers, and graphic novels. I’m always interested in books that cross genres and reinvent popular concepts with an engaging new twist (especially when there’s a historical and/or speculative element involved). On the nonfiction side I’m interested in memoirs, biography, and smart narrative nonfiction; I particularly enjoy memoirs and other nonfiction about sex work, addiction and recovery, and pop culture. share: Digg this post Recommend on Facebook Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Tell a friend

Wondering which books this agent fell in love with recently and sold? CLICK HERE to find out! As a former online editor and interactive designer, I use my experience in online marketing to help authors build their communities and promote themselves and their books. I look past the pages of a story and think of ways to help authors reach more readers so they can interact with the characters and their world. As subrights director for Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation, I handle foreign, audio and digital rights for the agency. I have an intimate list of clients, with Jaime Reed’s debut YA paranormal romance, LIVING VIOLET, book one of the Cambion Chronicles, coming out by Kensington in January 2012. I am currently closed to submissions (except conference requests) until August 1, 2011. You can find me on Twitter or visit my blog for more information or updates on the publishing
