Literary Agent Kimiko Nakamura Seeks New Clients

I’m not considering this a true New Agent Alert because literary agent Kimiko Nakamura (of Dee Mura Literary) is not new. That said, this post resembles an Alert in that Kimiko did tell me recently how she is actively looking to build her client list right now — and that is something writers should be happy to know. All details below for those interested in querying her!

About Kimiko: Kimiko was born on the coast of Long Island, NY, and grew up fishing off the dock with her father. It wasn’t long before Kimiko realized she preferred books to fish. Always striving to learn something new, Kimiko pursued a wide variety of interests in college, receiving a B.A. in Art History and Women’s Studies from Skidmore College with a minor in English. Finally caving into her lifelong passion and realizing her penchant for literature, Kimiko went on to complete Boston University’s Publishing program and began working in publishing and sales in the Boston area. She was then welcomed into the Dee Mura Literary fold as the driving force of the sales team. Kimiko loves seeing all the possibilities at the heart of each story, and has an uncanny ability to recognize new trends and develop unique voices. Her favorite books include The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares, A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby, The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters, and One for the Money by Janet Evanovich.

She is seeking: contemporary fiction, narrative nonfiction, women’s lit, young adult, fantasy, paranormal romance, mystery, satire, memoir, spirituality, and health.  She also loves books that make our daily lives more enjoyable, cookbooks that she can read like the Sunday morning paper, and inspiring stories of people making their mark on the world.

How to submit: Please send your query with the author’s name and project title in the subject heading. Address Kimiko in your letter’s salutation so they query reaches her. Include the following embedded in the body of the email:

  • Short description of the project
  • Brief author biography, even if you have no previous publications
  • Synopsis
  • Sample writing: for fiction, the first 25 pages; for nonfiction, an excerpt of the proposal

(Is it best to query all your target agents at once? — or just a few to start?)
