Helping Authors Find Literary Agents

Publishing Pulse 6/18/10

PhotobucketAh, another week has gone by. So many exciting things going on! I just want to give a big shout out to literary agent Kathleen Ortiz for working through the contest entries. She is AWESOME.

She also has a great post about why agents care about submission guidelines, so read that too.

New Agents:
Ann Bohner of Pen and Ink Literary: reps romance, women's fiction and YA.

Adam Korn of DiFiore and Company: reps literary fiction and a list of non-fiction. Click here to see his profile.

Adam Schear of DiFiore and Company: reps commercial and literary fiction and a list of non-fiction.

Christine Mervart of Anderson Literary Management: reps short story collections, literary fiction and a short list of non-fiction. 

From Guide to Literary Agents, a new agent alert for Amanda Luedeke of MacGregor Literary. Read the details here.

Be sure to check out the updated agent profiles to stay on top of who's accepting queries and who isn't. Scroll down a little to see the updated agents. 19 have updated their profiles just this month, including Michael Bourret and Colleen Lindsay. And always make sure to check agency blogs and websites for the most up-to-date information.

awesome linkage! The 'new agents' reminds me of birth announcements- I always stop for a minute to say 'awe' before hurring off to see if they represent my genre. Thanks!
