A World Where Dreams Come True…
2009 – Mary Sue Seymour signed me (and my young adult novel) to The Seymour Agency
2010 – My best friend and critique partner joined the Agency as an associate agent and took on my category romance
2011 – I accepted an internship opportunity with the Agency
2012 – Nicole Resciniti sold my South Beach series to Entangled Publishing!
Would you trust me (former intern turned aspiring agent) with your dream?
Here’s what I need:
The manuscript – A middle school novel I can’t put down until the last page and can’t stop discussing. Voice is definitely key for me. If I’m going to sign (and sell) someone or recommend someone, then the writer’s voice has to speak to me. I have to be able to listen (vocally and on the page) to that writer through revisions and edits and book after book. I want to find characters I’d want as my best friends and partners in crime long after the story ends, whether it’s in this world or an alternate universe… and middle grade means the content where issues are age-appropriate and not based solely on lexile levels.
As of May 1, 2013, I accept queries through conferences, contests, and referrals.
