Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Loren R. Grossman of the Paul S. Levine Literary Agency) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
Agent Paul Levine's wife, Loren R. Grossman, has joined him at the agency and is looking for clients. She specializes in nonfiction.
Nonfiction areas of interest: Archeology, art/photography/architecture, child guidance/parenting, coffee table books, education/academics, gardening, health/medicine, science/technology, law, religion, memoirs, sociology.
How to contact: E-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submitting writers are encouraged to refer to one or more “how-to” writers’ manuals. Send a one (1) page, single-spaced query letter, preferably by e-mail (although “snail mail” and fax are acceptable). No query-related phone calls, please. In your query letter, note your target market, with a summary of specifics on how your work differs from other authors’ previously published work.
All submissions should be photocopies free of spelling and grammar errors, in clear 12-point font (e.g., Times New Roman), double-spaced, paginated, on white 8.5x11 20-lb. paper, with 1-inch margins. If you are asked to submit material, and you would like it returned should we not accept it, don’t forget to enclose a self-addressed stamped envelop (SASE).
