*As of Tuesday, June 29, Sara will no longer be accepting referrals from this blog post. Thank you to everyone who sent queries and partials. Sara said she read some excellent queries and pages and even requested a few full manuscripts. She'll probably do another guest post soon about what worked and what didn't. Thanks again!
Well, I said I'd only be blogging once a week, but that was before I got an email from Sara with some news I knew you'd want to hear. I'll let her tell you all about it.
Dear Natalie's readers -
My name is Sara Megibow and I have the true honor of being the literary agent representing Natalie and her writing. It is my privilege to be working with such a talented, hard-working and passionate writer!
Natalie is being kind enough to allow me to post this message to all of you - thank you.
So, here goes...I am on the hunt for romance writers. If you have a completed of about 100,000 words, please send me a brief before the end of June. Let the floodgates open - I really, really want to read your work!
The project must be complete, not represented by another agent and be in any sub-genre of romance except category or inspirational (yes, this includes young adult, fantasy with romantic elements, paranormal, etc). Email me at query (at) nelsonagency (dot) com with a note in the subject line saying "referred by Natalie's blog" and a 2-3 paragraph overview of the work in the body of the email. Yes include your website or blog address, no don't include sample pages, synopsis, headshot or attachments.
You can find out more about me and my tastes at www.publishersmarketplace.com/Members/SaraMegibow
and more about our agency at www.nelsonagency.com
I hope you'll enjoy this little referral. If you have questions feel free to ask in the comments section.
*This just in: The 100,000 word guideline is for adult romance. YA should be quite a bit shorter.
**This offer will be good for at least a week or two, so there is no rush to submit today. :)
