As of May 2015, Bree is with Red Sofa Literary. She was formerly with
Martin Literary Management and D4EO Literary.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Bree Ogden of Martin Literary Management) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
She is seeking: The following:
• Highly artistic picture books (high brow art, think Varmints)
• Young Adult – NOT looking for sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, or dystopian
• New Adult – Any genre as long as it has a strong romantic element
• Adult – Will look at any genre, preferred genres: transgressive, horror, noir, crime, mystery, thriller, bizarro, gothic, romance, erotica
• Graphic Novels
• Some Select Nonfiction – No memoir or academia
• Humor (nonfiction)
• Pop Culture (nonfiction)
• Art books (nonfiction)
Bree’s wish list: (don’t limit your queries to these!)
• Dark (not angst-ridden)
• Psychological horror (with no paranormal elements)
• A Dexter-ish type YA black comedy (COMEDY being the operative word)
• A Roaring Twenties historical for YA
• A manuscript written in the era of Mad Men with panache and style
• A unique and theme-driven art book
• Any book dealing with Anne Boleyn
• Historical fiction (love crime-driven historical fiction, i.e. Black Dahlia)
