Taryn Fagerness is a literary agent out in San Diego; I met and interviewed her a while back when we crossed paths at the La Jolla Writers Conference. She contacted me today and said that after five years at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, she is branching out and going on her own.
According to her, the Taryn Fagerness Agency, LLC, will primarily work on "subsidiary rights on behalf of US literary agents (mainly foreign rights, but some audio and film too)." Now, my first question was: Will you continue to take queries? Her answer was No. She is not looking for new clients except for referrals from existing clients.
There is a lot of changes regarding the Sandra Dijkstra LA - with Kelly Sonnack leaving for Andrea Brown lit, Taryn moving out on her own, and two other agents leaving to form their own agency. More on that last part soon.
