I’ve been hearing rumors about a new agent at Firebrand Literary. Now it’s official. Elana Roth, formerly of Parachute Publishing, is an agent at Firebrand Literary. She’s looking for fiction for young adult, middle grade, chapter books, and picture books. She also accepts a few books for adults.
If you have a YA or MG novel with a believable male voice, I’d suggest sending a query to Ms. Roth. Same goes for Jewish fiction. Here’s a quote from her introductory post on the blue boards at Verla Kay’s website: “I’m forever on the lookout for good, modern, honest, not-watered-down Jewish fiction (think Shalom Auslander or Nathan Englander).”
Happy writing and querying!
