So my friend, the fabulous agent Gemma Cooper has accepted a position at the fabulous Bent Agency! Good news for all concerned and good news for you too, since you can now query her there!
Here's the post making the announcement where Gemma gives a full list of what she's looking to acquire. Exciting! Look how many exclamation marks I used!
Other inneresting stuff: I'm trying to finish the first draft of this YA contemp I'm writing by the end of this month. I'm considering a pepperoni and cheese sandwich for lunch. Harper are accepting unagented submissions for a short time next month.
Here's where you can find Harper Voyager guidelines for digital submission
And here are some of the details I took straight from their site.
Keen to become a Harper Voyager author? Here’s your chance to join
the imprint that publishes some of the biggest names in fantastic
fiction—George R. R. Martin, Kim Harrison, Raymond E. Feist, Robin Hobb,
Richard Kadrey, Sara Douglass, Peter V. Brett and Kylie Chan—to name
but a few.
For the first time in over a decade, Harper Voyager are opening the
doors to unsolicited submissions in order to seek new authors with fresh
voices, strong storytelling abilities, original ideas and compelling
storylines. So, if you believe your manuscript has these qualities, then
we want to read it!
We’re seeking all kinds of adult and young adult speculative fiction
for digital publication, but particularly epic fantasy, science fiction,
urban fantasy, horror, dystopia and supernatural. For more idea of the
type of books we love to read and publish, check out our authors and
their titles at www.harpervoyagerbooks.com
Submissions for digital originals will be open for a limited two-week period from 1st to the 14th of October, 2012.
Worth a look!
