ADDITIONS (3)

Stephanie Delman
Sanford J. Greenburger Associates, Inc.
Stephanie is building her client list with a focus on literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, voice-driven memoirs, upmarket women's fiction, and historical fiction (particularly WWII stories). She is open to quirky voices and dark comedy, and she loves expansive, interwoven narratives that traverse time and place. She is excited to develop long-term relationships with new writers.

Jessica Negron
Talcott Notch Literary
Jessica seeks the following adult fiction genres: science fiction, fantasy, psychological thrillers (fewer Navy SEALS and more Gillian Flynn), cozy mysteries, romance, and erotic romance. She also takes all genres of YA. Lastly, she would love to see books whose authors and characters are diverse in all or any respects, including but not limited to gender, sexual orientation, race, weight, ethnicity, religion, disability, and national origin.

Stacy Testa
Writers House
Stacy is looking for upmarket commercial women’s fiction and literary fiction, particularly character-driven stories with an international setting, historical bent, or focus on a unique subculture. She also represents realistic young adult (no dystopian or paranormal, please!). For non-fiction, she is particularly interested in young “millennial” voices with a great sense of humor and a strong platform and voice-driven narratives about little-known moments or people in history.
