I am on the cusp of seeking a literary agent for my first completed YA manuscript. Things you might want to know before asking to see my query and pages:
- The YA novel is fiction, takes place in contemporary time, has a sci-fi theme and a diverse cast of characters. The full manuscript, chapter outline and summary are ready for immediate review.
- I write for a living, full time. You can see where I’ve written here.
- I am also writing a MG book. This one will also be ready to query this year.
- I have a marketing plan for my books. I come from a sales/account management background and this is just how my brain works.
- I have a fan base of over 70,000 people. Most of them are parents, many are book-lovers, all of them know my plan is to write many novels for them to buy for their kids (and themselves). I also have my own Facebook group where we talk about books.
- I am a New York Times bestselling author for my work in a collection of humor essays here. My essay is the opening chapter.
- You can see a collection of my short fiction that I self-published in 2013 here. It has a 5-star rating on Amazon.
- I am a member of SCBWI and AWP.
- I have a list of other book ideas waiting for me to bring them to life. I’m in this for the long-term, and would love a literary agent who is looking for that in a client.
- I’m friendly, easy to work with and so super duper ready for this. And professional, despite my use of phrases like “super duper.”
