About Pooja: Pooja Menon earned her BA from Nottingham Trent University in England, and an M.F.A from The Otis School of Art & Design in Los Angeles. In the fall of 2011, she joined Kimberley Cameron & Associates as an intern, wanting to immerse herself more fully into the elusive world of books and publishing. For more information about her, you can visit her page on the company website, or follow her on Twitter at @FriscoDreamer, or read her blog at http://eatlovewritelive.wordpress.com/
She represents: Pooja is actively seeking to build her client list. She’s looking for compelling writing with an easy flow, a timely pacing, a unique perspective, and strong voices. She enjoys literary, commercial, historical, and upmarket women’s fiction; but is particularly drawn to stories with an international flavor, vibrant characters, multicultural themes, and lush settings. She has a soft spot for fantasy novels that are original and layered, with worlds as real and alive as the ones created by Philip Pullman and J.K. Rowling. In YA, she’s eagerly looking for submissions across all genres (contemporary, adventure, realist, paranormal romance, gothic, horror, historical, steampunk, dystopian, magical realism, urban fantasy, and new age). Pooja is also acquiring nonfiction adventure and travel memoirs, journalism and human interest stories, and self-help books addressing relationships and the human psychology from a fresh perspective. It is imperative for nonfiction writers to have a strong platform. If you do not have one, please build on that before sending your query letter.
How to submit: “Please send email queries to pooja [at] kimberleycameron.com. Include a one-page synopsis and the first 50 pages in word attachments. I will get in touch with you for extra pages or a hardcopy. In the case of nonfiction, please submit a well-crafted proposal and the first three chapters of your work in similar format.”
