APRIL 2009 UPDATE: Spencer is on a hiatus from agenting. (I think he's back in school.) Check with the L. Perkins Associates agency from time to time to see if he has returned.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Spencer Ellsworth at Lori Perkins) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
It's very late here, but I wanted to pass along some information about Spencer Ellsworth, a new agent with L. Perkins Associates (the Lori Perkins Agency).
He sent me a note saying he is looking for "science fiction, fantasy, historical novels, graphic novels, satire, memoir and travel writing. Please, no vampires."
Query him at email@example.com.
Here's some holy water, Spencer,
to keep those vampires at bay.
