Reminder: Newer agents are golden opportunities for new writers because they’re likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time and postage.
About Nicole: She joined the Fischer-Harbage Agency in 2008 as an assistant and has been promoted twice. Originally from England, Nicole lived in India, China and Thailand before settling in Manhattan.
She is seeking: compelling fiction and nonfiction, specifically books with an international focus. In nonfiction, she loves narrative nonfiction and history.
How to contact: E-query: submissions(at)fischerharbage(dot)com. (Editor’s note: Three writers have now told me that this submissions email that I took from the website doesn’t seem to work. If I find out more, I will let you know.) Paste your query and the first chapter of your book in the body of the e-mail. No attachments.
