New Agent Alert: Suzie Townsend of FinePrint Literary Management

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Suzie Townsend of FinePrint Literary Management) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.



About Suzie: She is an agent and an assistant to the CEO at FinePrint Literary Management. She was a high school English teacher for six years before changing careers and joining FinePrint as an intern. Suzie runs the Confessions of a Wandering Heart blog.

She is seeking: everything from children’s books (chapter books to YA, both fiction and nonfiction) to adult fiction (speculative, fantasy, urban fantasy, science fiction, and romance, especially paranormal). She gravitates toward strong female protagonists, complex plot lines with underlying political, moral, or philosophical issues, and stories that break out of the typical tropes of their genre, like Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel series. She likes select narrative nonfiction (with special interest in food, memoir, pets, pop culture, and teaching). She’s not interested in screenplays, poetry, or picture books.

How to contact: suzie(at)fineprintlit(dot)com. Send no unsolicited attachments. For fiction and memoir, query and include the word count and full contact information. In addition to the query, please include the first 5-10 pages (pasted into the body of the e-mail). For nonfiction, query only.
