Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Paul Lucas of Janklow & Nesbit Associates) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Paul: He joined Janklow & Nesbit Associates in 2007 and began representing authors in 2010.
He is seeking: He is interested in a wide variety of commercial and literary fiction, as well as specific nonfiction. In fiction, he enjoys both character and plot driven novels but it’s important to him for the storytelling to be clear and accessible. In genre fiction, he is looking for thrillers, spy, science fiction and fantasy genre writing, as well as literary novels. He appreciates a literary bent, subverting genre and darker, conflicted characters. Finally, he loves historical fiction and war novels. For nonfiction, he is interested in representing popular science books, new ways of exploring the major sports and narrative histories. (He does not represent romance, westerns, women’s fiction, memoir, self-help, children’s or picture books.)
How to submit: Please send attach the first 3 chapters of your book, a synopsis and brief bio to your queries and send them to plucas (at) janklow (dot) com.
