Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring George Bick of the Doug Grad Literary Agency) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About George: Prior to joining the Doug Grad Literary Agency as an associate agent, George was a sales and marketing veteran of over twenty years at Warner Books, Random House, Simon & Schuster, and HarperCollins. (Previously, I blogged about the opening of the DGLA. See that post here.)
Seeking: Bick is actively looking for narrative nonfiction, business, science fiction, horror/paranormal, thrillers, military, comics and graphic novels, diet/self-help, memoir, pets/animals, romance, science, humor, pop culture, and travel.
How to submit: "Query by email letter first at email@example.com. Please do not send more than a brief letter explaining your book--no sample material unless requested. And your patience is greatly appreciated. The agency is receiving over 100 queries a week and our time is limited--our first priority is to our clients and their books."
