Actively seeking new clients
Excerpt from http://www.writershouse.com
Writers House is one of the largest literary agencies in the industry. We represent a wide range of adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction.
I’m always on the lookout for distinct fiction and great, lively non-fiction. I represent adult and children’s books (for children’s books, I focus mainly on middle grade and YA). For fiction, I love stories that introduce me to new worlds — or even better, recreate ones I may already know. I especially love historical fiction of all kinds. For non-fiction, I enjoy history, memoirs, narrative non-fiction, all stripes and studies of pop-culture, and even gifty books that strike my fancy and make me smile. I’m a huge fan of graphic novels and memoirs, and am excited to hear from cartoonists of all backgrounds; illustrated or photography books are a specialty. And as the oldest child of six, plus uncle to eleven, who has changed many, many diapers in his life, I’m intrigued by any book with unique views on parenting and family life.
The best way to peg anyone’s taste is browse their bookshelf. Check out some of my clients’ books. You can also find me on Instagram and Twitter, @DanLazarAgent, where I wow & amaze the world posting what I’m reading (or listening– I love audiobooks) outside of work.
If your pages can make me hold my breath or miss my subway stop… I’d love to hear from you.
