Two new literary agents at the Rotrosen Agency seek authors


Jane Rotrosen Agency 
318 East 51st Street 
New York, NY 10022 

The Jane Rotrosen Agency specializes in commercial fiction: thrillers, mystery, suspense, woman’s fiction, romance, historical novels, mainstream fiction, and young adult fiction. The agency also represents authors of memoirs, narrative nonfiction, and prescriptive nonfiction.

The newest member of the team is Amy Tannenbaum.  Amy started her career at Harlequin and was more recently an editor at Atria Books, a Simon and Schuster imprint. At Atria, her areas of interest were memoir, self-help, celebrity, popular culture, quality commercial women's fiction, romance, and erotica. 

Amy’s authors included Jamie McGuire, Lorna Byrne, Barbara Reich, Laurie Davis, Gavin Edwards, Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, Martha Quinn, Tina Reber, and Cyndi Lauper.

As a new agent, Amy needs clients. She will represent new adult fiction (i.e., fiction for 18 to 20-somethings), romance, and women's fiction that falls into that sweet spot between commercial and literary fiction.

Include a brief synopsis and up to three chapters of your novel. Your query letter should include a concise description of your work, relevant biographical information, and any publishing history.

Agent Christina Hogrebe is also accepting new authors as clients. Christina grew up on a diet of Anne of Green Gables and Sweet Valley Twins books. Inspired by her favourite chick lit heroes, she left her native Pennsylvania and in 2003 signed on with the Rotrosen agency as an assistant. She was soon promoted to agent. She continues to pursue “three hanky” reads and “read with the lights on” books.
