Areas of Representation

Bay area literary agents, West coast literary agents, San Francisco literary agents, California literary agentsWhat we are looking for –

Areas of definite interest include – literary accessible fiction, historical and suspense novels with a literary bent that transcend genre, novels with a magical realism and/or a multicultural element, narrative nonfiction including memoir, journalism, unusual travel books, popular science, psychological and social concerns, women’s issues, fresh parenting ideas, culinary writing.

 

What we’re not looking for –

The agency does not represent genre ficiton, including romance novels, sci fi and fantasy, westerns, anime and graphic novels, mysteries. Afraid no poetry.  We are not connected to specialized publishers for academic or technical books. Additionally we do not handle picture books or chapter books for the juvenile market (except where the author is also a writer of adult books which we are interested in). We are not looking for Christian books, humor or how-to books. And we only handle books, no original screenplays.

 

What we’d consider on occasion, but not our central focus –

Short story collections if you’ve got strong publishing credentials
YA novels (if they’re likely to cross over)
Business books if they’re not nuts and bolts but are idea driven and fresh
Sports books
Pop Culture
