Marie Lamba has just announced that she is now an assistant agent at Jennifer DeChiara Literary.
From her blog:
As an agent, Marie is currently looking for young adult and middle grade fiction, along with general and women’s fiction and some memoir. Books that are moving and/or hilarious are especially welcome. She is NOT interested in picture books, science fiction or high fantasy (though she is open to paranormal elements), category romance (though romantic elements are welcomed), non-fiction, or in books that feature graphic violence.
Some recently favorite titles on her shelf include Searching for Caleb by Anne Tyler, Just Listen by Sarah Dessen, Paper Towns by John Green, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger, Twenties Girl by Sophia Kinsella, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gayman, Shug by Jenny Han, and Doing It by Melvin Burgess. She also admits to watching many many chick flicks.
To contact her, send query letters only to firstname.lastname@example.org.
…So, if you have something that you think I’d be interested in, please do send your query letter to the above email. I ask that you use only this email to contact me in my agent capacity. To keep things sane, I will not respond to unsolicited manuscripts or to queries that come to me via other avenues, including other email addresses, social media venues, etc.
