Stacia Decker moves to Donald Maass Agency

Donald Maass Literary Agency
Suite 801
121 West 27th Street
New York, NY 10001

A few months ago, I reported that editor Stacia Decker had moved over to the agenting side of the business and had joined Firebrand Literary (here). Now Stacia has moved up in the agenting world and has joined the Donald Maass Literary Agency.

But she's still a new agent, and new agents need clients. She represents mystery, suspense, noir, and crime fiction and is looking for a strong voice, dark humor, fast-paced plotting, and unpredictable violence.

Email her at with the query letter and first 5 pages pasted into the body of the e-mail.

The Donald Maass Literary Agency specializes in fiction. "All genres are welcome. We handle many authors of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, suspense, horror, romance, historical, literary and mainstream novels. mainly writing commercial fiction."

Do they work with previously unpublished writers? "Yes, all the time."

Note: On Oct 4, in Toronto, I'll be leading a seminar on "How to Get Published" with literary agent Alisha Sevigny as my guest speaker. Details here.
