Denise Little joins Ethan Ellenberg Agency, seeks genre fiction, etc.

Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency
548 Broadway, #5E
New York, NY 10012

Denise Little has been in the book business as long as I can remember, though until now she's been on the publishing side – as an executive editor at Tekno Books and before that at Kensington, where she had her own imprint: Denise Little Presents.  She's also been a buyer for the Barnes & Noble chain of bookstores.  Now she's joined the Ethan Ellenberg agency, and like any new agent, she needs authors. She will represent romance, paranormal, mystery, thriller, science-fiction/fantasy, non-fiction (not specified), Christian books, and horror

Denise’s submission page is here:

Ethan Ellenberg is also actively looking for authors to represent, including new writers.  Ethan is interested in all kinds of commercial fiction, including thrillers, mysteries, children's, romance, women's fiction, ethnic, science fiction, fantasy and general fiction. He also wants literary fiction as long as it has a strong narrative.

In nonfiction, Ethan is looking for current affairs, history, health, science, psychology, cookbooks, new age, spirituality, pop-culture, adventure, true crime, biography and memoir. He's open to reviewing other genres and topics, as long as the material is for a trade or general audience and not scholarly.

The agency does accept unsolicited manuscripts and seriously considers all submissions, including first time writers.

For fiction, your submission should include a synopsis, the first 50 pages (approximately) of your manuscript, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE).
For nonfiction, please include a book proposal (outline of the material, sample chapters, author bio, etc.) and a SASE.
For picture books, please include the complete manuscript, color copies of sample illustrations (if applicable) and a SASE.

For full submission guidelines to Ethan, see here:
