If you don’t get Kristin Nelson’s newsletter, you might not know that there’s a new agent in town! Sara Megibow, who has been Kristin’s literary assistant for several years, is going to start acquiring projects. Sara has this to say about what she’s looking for:
I love super sexy and intelligent romances. In the sf/fantasy world, I am looking for the story and characters to be as compelling as the world. In terms of YA and MG, I am excited to see more projects set in the real world (as opposed to vampires or werewolves, although, of course, those are still okay). Finally, I am itching for some fabulous historical fiction (like MISTRESS OF THE ART OF DEATH) or multicultural fiction both for younger readers and the adult market.
If Sara is half the agent Kristin is, she is going to be absolutely superb at agenting–and knowing how intelligent and competent she is, I fully expect that she’ll be every bit as good as Kristin. I can’t wait to see the first sales on Publisher’s Marketplace with Sara’s name attached. I’m sure it won’t be long.
