Workout Song of the Day: "Hello Good Morning" By Dirty Money
So this week I decided to showcase the very talented Kathryn Green from the Kathryn Green Literary Agency. Kathryn started her own agency in 2004 after spending 25 years in the publishing industry. That's a mega amount of experience, which I'm sure is beneficial to all of her clients. Since I couldn't find a legit picture of Ms. Green, I chose a clip art of how I'm sure she actually looks while working. Pretty awesome, huh?
Why I Heart Her: I just picked up a wonderful collection of YA short stories called Bleed written by Laurie Faria Stolarz. Since I fell in love with her writing so much, I did some research and discovered that she's kinda a big deal in the YA world--and Ms. Green is the genius behind the genius.
Why You'll Heart Her: Because her response time is on point! I've checked both QueryTracker and the Absolute Write Water Cooler and noticed that she responds to queries in record time--some even receiving input from her in the same day!
Who She Represents: Aside from the ultra talented Laurie Stolarz, Ms. Green also reps Bobby Mercer, Kristin Levine, and Jennifer Joyner among many others.
What She's Looking For: Popular fiction; young adult fiction; nonfiction including the three P's--pop culture, parenting, and prescriptive how-to's.
Notable Net Nuggets:
How to Submit to Her: Send email queries (with NO ATTACHMENTS) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There you have it. Now that I've done most of the work for you, send your queries off!
