Agents Came a Knockin’

What are the chances two of my clients would have agents knocking on their door at the same time? Well, it just happened—within a couple of weeks of each other. Both gals received an offer and approached agents who were reading their manuscripts to let them know they were considering the offer. The authors wanted to be fair to the other agents and allow everyone a chance to finish the book, but they also had to consider the agents who offered representation and not keep them waiting too long. I have to admit, this was just as exciting for me—well, close—as it was for them. I was on pins and needles, too.

So, today’s post is all about these fantastic storytellers whose imagination has no limit.

L.R. Nicolello is represented by Jill Marsal of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. Dead Don’t Lie is L.R. Nicolello’s debut romantic suspense novel. Take a peek:

Seattle’s best homicide detective tracks the city’s worst criminals, but when a killer from her past is resurrected and comes after her with murder on his mind, Evelyn Davis will be lucky to outsmart him, much less survive.

Samantha Fountain is represented by Jewelann Cone of Cascade Literary Agency. The Dark Intruder is Samantha’s debut YA paranormal romance novel. Check it out:

Explore the beauty of life…and the mystery of death.

The dead want to be heard, and that’s something seventeen-year-old Charlotte Kane is extremely good at. She communicates with the departed. This can be a scary business, but nothing has prepared her for the dark entity that has attached itself to her and her family. In the midst of a battle with a demon, a classmate goes missing. Some answers can only be found from beyond, but Charlotte must hurry. The demon is gaining power, threatening to destroy her and everything she holds dear.

I’m taking next week off, so see you July 9.
