New Agent Alert: Weronika Janczuk of D4EO Literary and Lynn C. Franklin

Update: In June 2011, Weronika joined Lynn C. Franklin Associates. Her updated contact e-mail is listed in this post. Reminder: Newer agents are golden opportunities for new writers because they’re likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time and postage. She is seeking: Single-title romances with an interesting premise and hook, particularly romances set in present-day; women’s fiction that deals with quirky and witty issues and stories that can make her both laugh and cry; literary fiction by authors with an established background and with a voice, especially books narrated by a younger protagonist; and more.
