Agent Updates

I'm afraid I didn't have time to research markets so I will leave you with some agent news.

Effective immediately, 3 Seas Literary Agency is accepting email queries only. Please email your first chapter and synopsis.

3 Seas handles Fiction, Nonfiction and YA.

The Scribe Agency is another one. Email only. They handle most fiction genres and nonfiction.


Save your stamps and your typing fingers. The Vines Agency, is not accepting any more queries.

Stimola Literary Studio is very interested in YA thrillers, mysteries, supernatural and sci fi books.

Two (relatively) new agents taking on new clients at Prospect Agency.
From the website:

"Rachel Orr joined Prospect Agency in 2007, after eight rewarding years editing children's books for HarperCollins. She enjoys the challenge of tackling a wide variety of projects—both fiction and nonfiction—particularly picture books, beginning readers, chapter books, middle-grade/YA novels, and works of nonfiction."

"Becca Stumpf, junior agent, joined Prospect Agency in 2006 after working as an assistant at Writers House Literary Agency. As a reader, Becca falls hard for sentences that are beautifully crafted, for humor in unexpected places, and for characters that come to life and follow you around for a while. Becca is looking for adult and YA literary and mainstream fiction that surprises."

Wow - Maria - I didn't know that about 3 Seas. In Dec. they had on their site, they did not want email queries and wanted 3 chapters and synopsis sent snail mail. I sent my partial in Dec. and I never heard anything.

Thanks for the information!

They are very nice people at 3 Seas. I forgot to send my SASE and they sent me a reply anyway.

I'm glad they went to email. Postage is a bear, especially when mailing 400 page manuscripts.

I included a SASE and haven't heard a thing. How long did it take for you to hear after you sent a partial? Thanks.

Checked my tracking journal...looks like they answered a little more than 2 months after I sent it in.

Send it in again, Diane. Sounds like it got lost.
