Apologies. I (Chuck) met Kara, a new agent, at a recent writers’ conference
in Sept. 2015 and made a note to profile her on here. But a keen reader just alerted me that
in the past few weeks Kara abruptly stopped agenting. She has a note about it here.
The point is 1) do not query Kara, though do examine the many cool agents at Corvisiero Lit,
and 2) apologies from me that this post had to be altered so quickly.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Kara Leigh Miller of Corvisiero Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Kara: Kara Leigh Miller is a new agent at Corvisiero Literary. Find her on Twitter, and see her official website here. She began her venture into the publishing world as a wet behind the ears author back in 2010. She started as an intern for a small press and worked her way up to Senior Editor within months. From there, she moved on to become the Editorial Direct at Anaiah Press, LLC. Now, as a well versed author and editor, she’s excited to switch sides to become an agent.
She is seeking:
— romance for adults or teens or new adult (contemporaries and romantic suspense are her forte, but she’s willing to consider just about anything as long as it’s well written [except things comparable to 50 Shades of Grey], including paranormal and urban fantasy
— mystery (teens and adults)
— thrillers (teens and adults)
— horror (teens and adults)
— inspirational fiction (open to all forms of inspirational fiction, not just those that are focused around the Christian faith, for teens and adults).
