Congratulations to Rebecca Enzor, Linda McLaren, and Sarah Raplee!
Stay tuned for June’s Agent Wishlist Contest.
Let the scramble for May’s Agent Wishlist begin! This is your chance to get a query and five pages read and critiqued by Super Intern Jess Silva, Super Author Luvina Jean-Charles, and one of two crazy awesome agents, Sandy Lu and Natanya Wheeler.
This contest will be open until June 6th at 11:59 AM Eastern Time or when all the spots are filled. Whichever comes first.
- Read the wishes to see if your (completed!) MS is a match!
- Claim your spot by commenting on this blog post. Please include the agent’s name and wish number in the comment. For example, comment: “Sandy Lu #2, please!”
- Hold tight until Jess replies if you’ve got the spot.
- Only once your spot is confirmed, go to http://mycharitywater.org/critsforwater2012and make one of the following donations:
——-$1 for a read only by either Luvina or Jess.
——-$5 for a critique by either Luvina or Jess.
——-$10 for a critique by BOTH Luvina and Jess.
- REGARDLESS of which donation you choose, if your pages are passed onto the agent, that agent will also critique your submission.
- Wait until you get an email about how to proceed.
- Jess/Luvina will read your submission. The ones they feel best match the agent’s wishes will be forwarded to the agent for another critique.
If you’re confused, feel free to ask questions in the comments. Both Jess and I will be monitoring the Wishlist to keep tabs across all timezones
So, without further ado, the Wishes!!
Introducing Sandy Lu of L Perkins Agency!
Sandy holds BAs in psychology and sociology from Queens College, with minors in music, business, and Japanese. Prior to becoming an agent, she attended the Ph.D. Program in Social and Personality Psychology at the CUNY Graduate Center and worked as a business/operations manager in the theater industry. She is fluent in spoken and written Mandarin Chinese. Sandy is seeking submissions that draw her in with a unique voice and a good yarn that will make her miss her subway stop and keep her up at night.
Sandy’s Wishes (adult and YA):
- Espionage fiction set in China between the two World Wars (Spots left: 10)
- An historical thriller set in 19th century London or New York (Spots left: 10)
- Contemporary psychological suspense in the vein of Tana French and Gillian Flynn (Spots left: 7)
Natanya Wheeler is an agent with the Nancy Yost Literary Agency, where she also handles digital rights. She represents both literary and commercial fiction, and always has an eye open for exciting nonfiction. Natanya is looking for submissions with unique voices, tight plots and strong characterization. She has an incurably weak spot for antiheroes. Natanya lives in San Francisco.
Natanya’s Wishes (adult only):
- A book about sisters (Spots left: 7)
- A well-researched literary thriller in the vein of Tom Rob Smith (Spots left: 10)
- A funny essay collection – on whatever subject! (Spots left: 9)
That’s all, guys. Aaaand GO!
