Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Stacey Graham of Red Sofa Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Stacey: Stacey is an associate agent for Red Sofa Literary after years of being on the other side of the literary blanket. She is the author of four books, as well as being a freelance editor, ghostwriter, screenwriter, and works closely with Boundary Stone Films.
The biggest literary agent database anywhere
is the Guide to Literary Agents. Pick up the
most recent updated edition online at a discount.
She is seeking: Humor books, humorous memoir along the lines of Jenny Lawson or John Cleese, dark middle grade, New Age with a strong platform, quirky nonfiction (YA/MG and adult), history, and horror. She is not looking for YA fiction or adult fantasy.
How to submit: Please query Stacey at stacey[at]redsofaliterary.com. If it's a good fit, she will request the first three chapters or a finished book proposal.
