The first romance novel I read was SWEET RELEASE by Pamela Clare. Pamela is a good friend and when this very first book of hers was published she hand-delivered a copy to me. That was in 2004 when I was uber-pregnant with my son. I remember balancing her book on my huge belly, reading late into the night and smiling the whole time. Every since then I’ve been a proud and voracious lover of romance novels.
As an agent, I represent romance novels and would love to see more romance submissions! I bring this up because Kate and Renee at KT Literary specialize in middle grade and young adult novels and they are both brilliant (read: BRILLIANT) in these genres. Until now, though, KT Literary hasn’t worked in the romance field and I’d like to get the word out – we do now!
My romance authors include Roni Loren, Tiffany Reisz, Ashlyn Macnamara, Christina Lee, Jane Kindred and Eleri Stone. I love humor and heat in my romance novels and am open to submissions in all sub-genres except inspirational (yes, I will consider books that are single title AND shorter). I’m a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and will be speaking at the WisRWA Write Touch Conference in Milwaukee, WI April 24-26 and the San Diego RWA chapter meeting on June 20.
Please note – if you are a member of RWA, please include this information in your query letter! As always, please send a query letter and the first 3 pages of your manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org and expect a 2-8 day turn around on those queries. Kate and Renee will continue to represent middle grade and young adult. If you have a completed romance novel, though, and are looking for an agent – please consider me!
