Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Adriana Dominguez of Full Circle Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
Full Circle Literary is based out of the SanDiego area, but Adriana will be their east-coast representative.
About Adriana: She has more than 10 years of experience in publishing, most recently as Executive Editor at HarperCollins Children's Books, where she managed the children's division of the Latino imprint, Rayo. Prior to that, she was Children's Reviews Editor at Críticas magazine, published by Library Journal. She is also a professional translator, and has worked on a number of translations of best-selling children's books.
Fiction areas of interest: Children's books - picture books, middle grade novels, and (literary) young adult novels. On the adult side, she is looking for literary, women's, and historical fiction.
Nonfiction areas of interest: Multicultural, pop culture, how-to, and titles geared toward women of all ages.
