So, good news time! =)
I am officially going to continue agenting, and I'll be working with Lori Perkins of the L. Perkins Agency. Lori has been in the publishing business for twenty years, and represents such clients as Tim Lucas, Ray Manzarek (keyboardist for the The Doors), John Skipp, Cecilia Tan, Anna Benson, Joey Bishop, and Jeanne Cavelos, as well as many, many other equally interesting people. Lori is very well-respected within the industry, and I'm very happy that I get to work with her.
My new business e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and any snail mail stuff, such as queries or manuscripts, can be sent to me at:
L. Perkins Agency
15-9 Interlaken Court
Freehold, NJ 07728
I prefer snail mail queries, although e-mail ones are fine as well, especially if you live outside the USA. With your query letter you should only include a synopsis of your project, as well as any other pertinent information. I don't want to see manuscript pages, unless I ask for them in the form of a partial.
I'm actively acquiring in the genres of science fiction and fantasy, horror, and romance, and I'm particularly interested in novels that excel at storytelling. At the moment, I'm not very interested in straight contemporary romances (I already have several clients doing those), but I'm open to historical romances and paranormals of any type.
ETA: I am still in the process of notifying clients, due to the long holiday weekend, so if you haven't heard from me yet, you'll be getting a call later today. (I know several of you read my blog. =)
