Literary agents Laura Zats seek new authors, YA, middle grade, new adult, sci-fi, romance, erotica, and more

Red Sofa Literary
2163 Grand Avenue
#2; St. Paul, MN 55105

Laura Zats graduated from Grinnell College with degrees in English and anthropology. She’s been working as an editor since 2011 and has held positions at companies in both the US and the UK. In 2013, Laura joined Team Red Sofa as an intern but quickly became more of an apprentice and is now an Associate Agent. Like all new agents, Laura needs authors.

Laura is interested in Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction, especially contemporary, and in romance, and Sci-fi/Fantasy, Erotica, and New Adult fiction.

Query Laura at:
No attachments. No chapters until requested.

Jennie Goloboy is a relatively new agent. She joined Red Sofa Literary as an Associate Agent in the fall of 2011 and has just been promoted to full agent. Jennie Goloboy has a PhD in the History of American Civilization from Harvard. 

She is also a published author of both history and fiction, and a member of various large writers’ groups (SFWA, RWA, SHEAR, OAH, the AHA, and Codex). Her funny, speculative fiction short stories appear under her pen name, Nora Fleischer.

Jennie is looking for:
Genre Fiction  Science Fiction/Fantasy or Paranormal, especially with a literary flair.
Young Adult and Middle Grade  Fiction, especially Science Fiction/Fantasy
History  must have a commercial (non-academic) focus. Early American history is preferred, but will consider all projects.
Biography – Absolutely no personal memoirs!

No attachments. No chapters until requested.
