New Agent Alert: Jessica Alvarez of BookEnds, LLC

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Jessica Alvarez of BookEnds, LLC) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.


About Jessica
: Jessica Alvarez joined BookEnds, LLC in April 2011. Mere days after graduating from New York University with a B.A. in English Literature, Jessica began her publishing career in 2001 as an editorial assistant at Harlequin Books. There, she had the opportunity to acquire and edit a wide array of women’s fiction, specializing in historical romance, romantic suspense, and inspirational romance.

She is seeking: women’s fiction, erotica, urban fantasy/paranormal, romantic suspense, and single title and category romance submissions. A New Jersey native, Jessica resides in the Garden State with her husband, young son, two energetic dogs, and an indeterminate number of fish.

How to submit: Query jalvarez[at] “BookEnds agents do reply to all submissions and e-queries and hope to do so in a timely manner. Our response time goals are 4 weeks for queries and 12 weeks on requested partials and fulls. Unfortunately, at times circumstances mean we fall behind in our responses. We do try to post status updates through Twitter, Facebook, and occasionally on the blog. If you haven’t received a response to a query after 8 weeks, we ask that you simply resend the query. It’s possible that it was eaten by a spam filter either on our end or yours.”

    My first book, Jingle Dancer is about a young girl who assembles her jingle dance regalia with the aid of women of every generation of her intertribal community and then dances to honor them at a powwow. My debut novel for tweens, Rain is Not My Indian Name, is about a girl who, after the unexpected death of her best friend, slowly reconnects to the important people in her life through the lens of a camera. Indian Shoes is a collection of humorous, touching short stories for middle grade readers. They’re about young Ray and his Grandpa Halfmoon.
