Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring MacKenzie Fraser-Bub of Trident Media Group) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About MacKenzie: Before embarking on her career as a publishing agent at Trident Media, MacKenzie wanted to experience working inside a major publisher, and gain valuable insights on marketing, which she could use later to her clients’ advantage. She became Publishing Manager at Touchstone Books (a division of Simon & Schuster). She worked closely with the sales and marketing departments for a wide-array of bestselling authors, such as Phillipa Gregory, Lisa Unger, Bethanny Frankel, J.A. Jance, and R.L. Stine.
She is seeking: MacKenzie is particularly interested in women’s fiction, romance, upmarket commercial fiction, historical fiction, literary fiction, and YA with cross-over appeal. MacKenzie accepts queries from new and emerging writers. In her own words, “I am actively seeking to build her client list and is particularly interested in women’s fiction. I accept queries from new and emerging writers. What I look for in every genre is a good story, well told.”
How to contact: Send a query letter, pasted in the body of the email, to MFraserBub [at] TridentMediaGroup.com. Your query should include only a paragraph about yourself, a brief plot pitch, and your contact information. Please do not send a manuscript or proposal until you have been requested to do so.
