Reminder: New literary agents are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

As of December 2012, literary agents Jordy Albert and Brittany Booker have formed The Booker Albert Literary Agency. Both agents were formerly agents at the Corvisiero Literary Agency, having joined in 2012. They have started their own agency and are actively building their client list. Read on for more information, as the two bios are separate below.
